If you are attempting to format the card, do so in the camera - not with
the PC - for best results.

This is not for a camera. Compact flash for Embedded computer.
So i have to use Xp to format. but it refuses.
Are there any tools that could help me ?

Cheers

My guess is that you zapped it with some static electricity.
You could also have removed the card during a write process.
Since CF is getting to be reasonably priced, you might just
buy a new card or two.

You might send the card back to the mfg'r, I would get in
contact with them, whether it be Lexar, Fuji, or whomever.
