Corrupt micro SD
show user profile  Sangre
Having some issues with my TDK 16gb micro SD card after improper ejecting. Tried formatting it on my phone, digital camera, pc, using linux console commands, windows disk management and various formatting software. If I try a quick format option I get "Windows was unable to complete the format". Complete wipe seams to work at first but still pops an error in the end. Is there some brute force approach to wiping the data from it? Thanks!

A magnet?

Note: it'll fuck your SD, just in case you do put a magnet to it.

Actually I am not sure a magnet will do anything to a SD card, since it does not work like an old fashion HDD.

I am assuming that you have tried the following program:

But to be honest, with all the things you have already tried, it seems like the card is dead. They are sort of fragile, and I have had to chuck a few micro-SD cards along with a couple of tiny USB sticks.
I find that the device that will most often work, for a proper format, is my Android phone, but sometimes the card is just boinked.

Terribly boring signature.
