Help! Just got a new Galaxy S9+, went from a Samsung 5s Active,...where I used a SD XC 128gig card for music & photos/videos, that worked great for years. In trying to erase & reformat from the old phone....it wont reformat or even delete content, LOCKED in!

Just tried a low level format, (from http://hddguru.com/software/HDD-LLF-Low ... rmat-Tool/,) - which just failed as well. Tried Mac BookPro utilities, Windows formatting- again no luck.... When I put it in the new phone it continually says its corrupted, but when I put it in my desk top (Win 10) I stil see all the content from the first phone.... I am stumped. Suggestions? Thanx in Advance

Is the 5s phone still working? If yes, try to format there and then test back on the S9.

failed controller, set to read only and probably capacity issues. THe SD card is toast to 99% but see if this tool works https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/
