    Angry SanDisk 64GB SDXC - Cannot Format, Delete, or Add...

    Hi all,

    So my SD card recently kept unmounting itself from my phone (S4), and I've been allowed to get a full refund as it's a known compatibility issue with SanDisk cards and Samsung Galaxy S4.

    The problem here is that I cannot format my card using most means (through PC, MAC, Phone, and DSLR). The card is currently using exFAT. It mounts to my system fine, I can see all files stored perfectly, although whenever I delete the files individually and remount my SD card, all the files appear again!!

    Through PC, I have used Disk Management, EaseUS Partition Manager.
    Through MAC, I've used Disk Utility, SD Card Formatter v3.

    At the moment, i don't feel comfortable in sending it back, with personal data easily accessible.

    Anyone have any other methods / ideas?

    Thanks!

    Why don't you format it with FAT32 instead? EaseUS should be able to do it.

    Tried that within EaseUS and SD card Formatter, and it keeps failing. The SD card keeps unmounting itself from the system and remounting, thus cancelling the operation.

    The strange thing is that nothing is corrupted on the SD card, I've been able to view and backup everything as normal....
