Default Micro sd won't format, save or erase data.

I have a 64GB SanDisk micro sd card and I can't format it. The card content cannot be erased, if I erase something it appears again when I restar phone or unmount and mount it. If I save something in it, it disappears the same way.

I think it has something to do with encryption. I encrypted the card, but I decrypted back, but I changed rom. But at least I should be able to format it and erase all content.

Use a computer to reformat the card. That works for me.
