Hi, my name is Chris!

If the card won't let you format it, then it's very possible that there is something physically wrong with the card and that it is simply beyond repair.

With that said, you could try using a 3rd party program from a company like EaseUS to attempt to format it. Please see the following article for some options:

https://www.easeus.com/storage-media-recovery/sandisk-sd-card-wont-format-in-windows-10-8-7.html

It will have a link to the free EaseUS software, and in particular I want you to pay attention to the second option titled, "Step 2. Fix SanDisk SD card won’t format error."

If you follow that process and the card still won't format, then unfortunately you can conclude that you simply have a dead card.

Good luck with it! And if you have any questions on this, just let me know.
