Can't erase/format SD card...

I have a 64GB micro SD card that I had in my Samsung tablet for a while. It usually had some movies, pictures and music files on it. Once in a while I would pull it out and put newer files on it and it always worked. Recently I pulled it out to put a couple new movies on it and all of a sudden I couldn't do anything to the SD card. It wouldn't let me format the card and if I deleted some files in Explorer, when I opened it back up, the files were still there. The files do not appear to be corrupted; I can copy them to another drive and play them or view them. But I cannot delete them, I can't format the card and when I put it back in the tablet, it says the disk is corrupted. The tablet won't format the card either. I even tried using the DISKPART app in windows 10 to delete the partition. It says it is deleted but when I list the partitions, it is still there. I have tried this on my desktop using the micro SD card adaptor and a USB drive adaptor. Same thing with either one so I know it's not because I have the card locked. What can I do to this card to get it working again? These things aren't cheap to replace.

i'd run chkdsk command on it and see if that fixes things so it can be used again.

Here also comes a topic that tells why a USB drive/SD card can not be formatted. It also gives solutions to format with Disk Management or with Diskpart, as well as with free partition manager software. :yeah:
