Well the only way really to do so is plug it into the computer and put the pictures on there then format it, maybe do a computer you don't care about getting a virus on haha.

what makes you think you have a virus on your sd card anyways?

If you have a Mac, pop the SD card in the reader, pull off your photos and then reformat the card with Mac disk utility.

If you got a Windows PC, try to use a virus scanner to repair the SD card. If the repair is successful then copy your photos off the card then reformat the card using Windows. If the virus repair is unsuccessful, you can still try to copy the contents of the card to your PC and reformat the card with the PC.

Let us know if you have any luck. I don't recommend reformatting THEN trying to RECOVER the photos... some photos will be rendered useless with this method.

You could simply select a memory card recovery freeware to save your photos and then format it.
Honestly, this freeware helped a lot as my memory card became inaccessible because of some virus infection. However, fortunately, I finally found this freeware to recover all my data back and saved my card at the same time. You should try it, too.
1. Do not save new data on this memory card before you have recovered your data in case of data loss.
2. Do not put the recovered data on this memory card in case of recovery failure.
3. Do not forget to back up your important data regularly in the future.
