There are two ways you can fix a damaged memory card.

Secondly, if it tells you that you can't format, then get these two things. A toothpaste, and a blade.

Apply a small toothpaste on the golden-colored part of the memory card and clean it off with a clean micro-fiber cloth.

Use the blade to gently scratch the golden-colored part and ensure it doesn't scratch the black potion. Then clean it with a microfiber cloth, insert the memory card into the mobile phone, and format it.
