Windows was unable to complete the format

Hello,

I tried to change it from NTFS by clicking on exFAT, and the window message said "Windows was unable to complete the format." I need to format my SD card or I won't be able to use my karaoke

  1. Maybe an issue with the card. Is there another computer you can try this with?
    You can also try a live linux CD to boot off and try to format using that OS.
    http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download read the 3rd item there.
  2. Make sure the card is not write protected.

    There is a switch on the card or try this

  4. To format your USB in windows, you may try also the following:

    a) Open command prompt:
    1) Start>Run>cmd
    or
    2) win-key+R.


    b) Format your USB drive by typing the text (for example: If your USB drive letter is J) :

    C:\>format J:/q

    Press Enter Key

    If that doesn't help, then there's a list of additional methods on the following page:
