hi,
My Sandisk 32GB is not accessible. It Shows 0 bytes used of 0 bytes total. I Performed Chkdsk /f but it says sd card is raw and chkdsk is not available for raw disks. diskpart method is also not working.I used HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool but it says format not completed. Disk Management is also not helpful. SDFormatter telling SD Card is write protected. I dont mind if Data is lost as i have data backup. Please give me an appropriate solution asap

Thanx in advance..

Hi Akhil,

I strongly recommend you to check the SD card on another PC or on another device. Appears the same error? Sadly, it is possible that the card has been damaged. Sometimes trying another OS may results helpful in situations like this. Try using Linux Live CD. You may be able to format the SD card. Keep in mind that the card may be damaged and if so, the issue may repeat.
If the issues appears on another devices and PCs, I would consider getting a new card.
