"Damaged sd card" cant reformat

I recently bought a 32gb sandisk micro sd card last december 14 2017 and earlier today (jan 3 2018) i noticed my phone suddenly freeze and restarted it then upon restart i can no longer access my memory card it says damaged sd card try reformartting...the prob is i cant seem to reformat it. Every time i hit format memory card on my phone nothing happens and still says damaged sd card try reformatting...i have more than 30k images on it and i want to recover it if possible...honestly i trust sandisk/WD when it comes to external storage (i have 5x wd external hdd and one of them was from 2008 and still works till now) reason why when i decided to buy a micro sd i decided it should be sandisk

What happens when you connect the card to a computer? Can it read it? Formatting the card will erase anything that has been added, so I would only do that as a last resort.

I can view the files and compress them in the same drive...but the moment i try to delete or copy or move them the driver would disconnect and says parameter is incorrect

Hmmm, bummer. It's not sounding promising. Smiley Sad
