    I have this SanDisk 32GB MicroSD card that's ended up with two partitions -
    android_meta and android_extended as result of a failed attempt to use the card as Adopted Storage in a Lenovo Phone.

    Neither Windows or Android now detect the card, and I've tried quite a few methods to get the card to work. These include using diskpart, chkdsk, testdisk.exe, mounting it using a pc running linux and using a few other disk repair softwares. But, none seem to be able to format the disk.

    Is there a way I can get this card back to normal. It's a blank card so data recovery does not matter.

    Using a card reader, Windows should happily let you format the card.
    What is the exact wording of any error message you are getting?

    I'd say that if your PC doesn't detect the card at all, then it probably got irretrievably corrupted during whatever process was used to adopt it.

    I don't recommend SD card as adoptable storage for this very reason of being corrupt and not fast read speeds
