I recently purchased a 64 GB micro SD card for my tablet. I was formatting it with the DOS command to FAT32, and it was taking a long time so I went out to do errand. My roommate "helpfully" shut down my laptop while it was till formatting and now it is not recognizable in Windows. I tried plugging it into my tablet instead, which doe recognize it and acknowledges that it needs formatting, but can't do it because of its size.

I tried viewing Disk Management and it doe not appear there. I have it connected via a USB adapter that makes it into a flash drive. What would I need to do to get it to allow me to reformat the card?
