I bought this Raspberry Pi kit to run RetroPie to go with a Tankstick that a friend gave me.


Initially I was able to configure the MicroSD card with the USB adapter.  I bought a 128GB MicroSD that I'm using now.  So, I pulled out the 32GB card and was getting CRC errors on it initially in Windows and couldn't do anything with it. I put it in my Kindle Fire HD and I was able to use the Fire to Erase the card and it looks fine.  When I put it back in the USB or a SD adapter I have it is no longer recognized by Windows and I get an insert disk error when I try to access it.


Any ideas on how to get Windows to recognize it again?

I'm assuming it's also not listed in Disk Management or diskpart.


Fire OS is based on Android which uses a linux kernel. The only thing I can think of is to use a live GParted disk hoping it will see your the card and allow you to partition and format it. The bootable version of Partition Wizard is also linux based and may detect it.
