Default SD Card Low Level Format

Anyone know of a good utility to do a low level format of a sd card? Has anyone been successful at recovering a sd card that appears to be unreadable?

Try the Windows checkdisk on the SD card.. that will fix filesystem errors in some cases

Default Re: SD Card Low Level Format

I contacted SD support and they recommended that I use the disk manager under My Computer - Manage to format the drive using a card reader. For some reason I didnt think of this before. It took awhile but a format made the card readable. Thanks for the tip about checkdisk. I havent used that command in years.
