Can Use TD/PR Software to Find and Fix Corrupt Files on FAT32 and exFAT SD Cards?

Have been using SD cards with my various cameras (Canon, Nikon), Android phones and Nook Tablet.

By accident I found my Nook Tablet is corrupting both my FAT32 and exFAT SD Cards just by inserting them in this device. When I install a Good mSD Card in my Nook Tablet it asks if should Format. Even if cancel Format somehow the SD Card becomes Damaged. I accidentally did this to a Good 64GB Card that before this worked in both the Note 3 and my PC. Now it does not work in either! Later repeated this with FAT32 SD Cards with same result. Googled and found Droid Charge: Damaged SD card Error / Won't Mount - Fix?? ... t-fix.html

To date have put the corrupted cards away and have only been searching to find the best software to repair these FAT32 and exFAT SD Cards.

Can TestDisk or PhotoRec repair SD Card FAT32 and exFAT like CHKDSK?

If not, appreciate any software recommendations for fixing these cards without Formatting.

Also interested in software that will tell me what files are damaged.
