Default SD card stuck in (read only mode)

Hi,

I have recently discovered that my Sd card has become stuck in a state that seems like read only I can delete files but then once I unmount it then remount it goes back to its previous state, in have tried formating it on my phone, windows Explorer, windows disk management, osx disk utility, haven't tried Linux yet, need to fix my Ubuntu install. I have also tried chkdsk from windows and tells me the card is dirty, but is unable to read the partition table or something like that. Osx tells me it needs repaired after I verify it and the repair works, but once I verify it again the same problem arises again. The card is a San disk ultra 64gb formatted to exfat.

I would be grateful for any help in this matter. Thanks in advance.

Well if i had a faulty 64gb card of that make and had read the multiple posts on faulty sandisc 64 gb cards then i would either use the sandisk forum or return the card to the vendor under warranty .

I returned it the last time I had a faulty card which was a few months ago, the problem is that nu dad ordered the card from Amazon and he won't talk to them about getting a replacement. It also takes about 2 weeks for SanDisk to replace a card, and I have to pay postage for their faulty product which doesn't quite seem right.
