Just finished searching for the same answer.
What worked for me was to use www.partitionwizard.com to delete and recreate the partition on the card, then format. (Be sure to click the "apply changes" button)
Vista's diskpart may work, it didn't on my disk.
Also, if you want to recover any data I have been able to recover photos from a corrupted SD card using the free version of Zero Assumption Recovery
OR if that doesn't work try this
Step 1: Run -> CommandPrompt ->
Step 2: Type diskpart ->Enter
Step 3: Type list disk ->Enter
Note: (Find out the allocated number of your disk)
Step 4: Type select disk X ->Enter
Note: (If X is the number for your drive)
Step 5: Type clean ->Enter
Note: (If you want to create partition in desired disk continue next step, otherwise ignore it.)
Step 6: Type create partition primary ->Enter
Step 7: Remove the SD Card and place it back in and mount.Source(s): XDA

load in up in a computer (desktop/laptop/whatever)
if autoplay is enabled , it should pop up with a little windows , click the view files area (it has a folder next to it) then press CTRL and A together , followed by CTRL and D together.
if no autoplay, Start -> computer -> SD Card (whatever its called) then press Ctrl and A , followed by Ctrl and D.
answer yes if prompted.Source(s): computer networking student.
