It may very well be dead. Although it should've lasted longer than a month, cards do have a write-rewrite life cycle, just like any hard drive or memory stick (for example). The first thing that I'd try to do is to take the card back, and complain that it only lasted 4 weeks (almost 4 weeks). It should have atleast a 30 day warranty on it (probably a few months or a year), which will hopefully cover it. If the store argues, tell them that it's good customer service to replace the card, since it reflects directly on the stores image (works well with large stores like Best Buy).
You could try to format the card first, too. Use the camera option to format the card (assuming that it will allow you to "see" the card). If not, then since windows freezes when you look at the card, you're back to trying to return it to the store.
Note that formatting the card will erase any/all "data" (pictures) on the card permanently. If you can get windows to see the card, you could try to do a scan disk on it or even a defrag might help....but unlikely (worth a try though!).
Probably not the news you wanted to hear, sorry!
Best of luck!
