Wipe my SD card.

I have some electrons(data) stuck in a damaged(what my tablet calls it) sd card I want to return under warranty. I can see the files but canīt delete or reformat the darn thing. Short of putting it the microwave, or using it for target practice, any suggestions.

For me experiences are not good or bad, just different

Is the SD card removable from the tablet? If so, how about removing and trying to do a low level wipe on a PC with an external SD card reader?

If it's actually an SD and not micro-SD card, first make sure the little locking switch is not engaged. That might be preventing you from modifying the files.
