1- Clean the contacts of your card with a soft cloth. If dirt is visible on the contacts and cannot be cleaned with a cloth, use some alcohol or a pencil eraser.

2- Google "sdformatter" and download the tool. Use it to format the card

If these 2 options do not work, your card is most probably damaged.

Good Luck

You could try this:
Start => Setting => Control Panel =>Administrative Tools => Computer Management =>Disk Management=> Right click your card on the list => format it.
Don't work?
Try format software.
