wow, idk then

This might be a long shot, but maybe you can try a partition manager outside of windows and see if you can reformat it, though that will only work if the computer sees it as a bootable "drive"

Not sure but last I remembered about SD cards... pull out the card. Look at the side of it - there should be a small plastic tab, lever, switch, that you can slide up and down.

Slide it into a different position - that normally removes write protection on most of these things.

windows xp cd to the rescue? Windows xp install will format almost anything.(and 98) Boot a xp install disk with it plugged in. If it sees it thats great and format it DO NOT INSTALL IT. Just press d and the l to delete it and then restart you computer.
