Ok, so im trying to wipe an sd card clean by going from cmd to diskpart.exe then using commands "list disk", "select disk 1", and "clean". pretty straightforward. unfortunately after the clean command it gives an error message, "Diskpart has encountered an error: The semaphore timeout period has expired." i looked it up and people were getting the same error message doing a wide variety of tasks and it looks like there are a wide variety of reasons so im wondering if anyone had an idea of what i might try, thanks :)

Is D:\ the drive letter for the SD card mate and also it could be fat32 file system so the command would be like

cmd /c echo Y | format E: /fs:fat32

Check for surface errors you can do that from properties sheet Tools tab and click Check button select both check box and click Ok button. If this wont resolve the issue reassign new drive letter to SD card. If this wont resolve the issue then uninstall driver for the SD card from Device Manger and reinsert the SD card to reinstall driver.
