can't format or use properly my memory card

Specs: windows xp
Hi;
I've been trying to remove or edit files in my SD Card, when I delete a file I got no errors, I can create files in my SD Card too, but when I unplug it and plug it again, nothing changed, the old files are there and the new ones disappeared... Then I tried to format it, directly in Windows and from the command prompt in windows, I got this error from the command prompt "Invalid Media or Track 0 Bad - Disk Unusable".
I think i need some low level format option like maxllf
Please help me with download link and how to use it ..
Please

Well you could try deleting the partition/s and make new. Then format the new partition.

That said, flash drives and memory cards are the least reliable of any media currently in wide use. They are only good for a finite number of rewrites.

Are you safely removing the card before physically removing it?

How are you connecting the SD card to your computer?

If you can see the card directly in "Computer" you should be able to right click it and format it from there. No need for Command Prompt.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yeah I'm not sure the FORMAT command is meant for SD cards. Was the card previously formatted and used in a camera or phone?

Well, assuming you're doing everything right, the card just may be bad.

I just noticed you asked about maxllf. Since it's a dos based program I doubt it would see anything USB-connected. Plus an SD card isn't a hard drive. But if you want to experiment with it and can't find an online download I can send it to you.
