I was using sandisk 32 gb sdcard on my phone.One day i rebooted the phone and suddenly it showed "sd card damaged". I tried to format it through the phone but i was unsuccessful.

Then i plugged it in my PC.Its workin normally but im unable to format it.Even if i try to delete files on it.They appear again.

I tried to format it through cmd but i was unsuccesful.(windows was unable to complete the format)

I used DSKCHK /F command but again unsuccessful.

I used sdcard formatter .It shows "drive is write protected".I removed the protection through REGEDIT in the StorageDevicePolicies(although the folder wasn't present there,i created it and set the values to "0").Still sdcard formatter shows the device is write protected.

And one more thing i unlocked the card through the lock button on the card reader.

Inspite of all these troubleshooting steps,im still unsuccessful and starting to get frustrated.

A friend of me(who knows computer very well) told me there is a virus in it.
I reffered to some forums,they say that its your PC which is reinfecting it after deletion.But the problem is there in other PCs also.

Please provide me with a solution to this problem.
