    I know this is probably not what you want to hear, but it sounds like your card is fried. If your computer cannot read it and what's more, cannot format it, it's certainly corrupt and probably damaged.

    I would try putting it into another phone just to see if that will read it, but I'm not very hopeful it'll work if a PC cannot access it.

    SD Cards, believe it or not, are not too reliable. And in my experience with Samsung phones, they tend to fail A LOT (but for others they've worked flawlessly for years). You can really only format it either through a computer or a phone, not too many options there.

    You said the PC does read the card. Can you see any of the files in there? Open any of them? If so, have you tried writing any file onto the card? Try copying a picture or creating a TXT file just to test.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Again, I'm afraid your card is damaged. It will see that it's inserted, but it won't be able to access the data or write onto it, therefore, won't be able to format it either.

    Again, I'd try in a different PC but I wouldn't keep my hopes up

    Firstly make sure ur card is properly dismounted from the phone and now switch off ur phone den insert the sd card and den turn it on den try maybe dis will work and if dis doesnt work try inserting it into the given samsung adapter (the bigger one) and den into ur computer and den format it. Hope this helps man i know this sd card problem can be frustrating!!!

    And make sure to keep backups, especially if you use the SD Card for pictures.
