    There are a lot of fake USB sticks and SD cards out there. This could be a fake one where they set the size incorrectly. I'd try writing a large (15gb+) file to it and check you can copy it back again. If that works then try a 31gb+ file too. You might be lucky and it's a genuine 32gb mislabeled. But equally it could be a fake sdcard with a random amount of memory on it such as 8gb.
