I had an 16 GB micro SD card (San disk).
I used it in my tab and it works fine for a month but now I can't transfer any file from and to the SD card
I tried file transfer from my computer and tried to transfer through Bluetooth but nothing works.
Even I tried to format the SD card but I end up with an error that shows windows cannot format it.
I'm not worried about the data in the micro SD card that's all were just songs.
But I want my SD card to be work normal

Sorry to say that if Command Prompt can't access the card it is looking like the card has gone bad.

However to be sure it is the card and not the card reader on your computer, the only way to check that is with a known to be good card.

 

Edit to add,

one other thing to check, if the card has a data lock switch on the side of it, make sure it is in the fully unlocked position.

Normally if it is in the locked position it will tell you it is locked, however if only partially moved over, it just might then give the results you are seeing.

Ok, thanks for the info Simon, I am afraid the only next option is to check the card reader with a known to be good card, if that is OK it looks like the card is dud.
