i have a surface rt ( first generation ) running windows 8.1 ( i have a 64 gb sandisk sd card installed on my surface ( with all the pics, documents, videos, and music folders linked to the sd card ) today i decided do eject the sd card to install about 2000 songs from my laptop to my sd card, everything went normal, i finished coping the files , so i remove the sd card, and i put it back in on the laptop to make sure all the music was there, but i noticed that it never copied anything ( after spending 50 min for the songs to transfer) so i went to folder setting and unchecked DO NOT SHOW HIDDEN FILES, and there it was, a folder on my sd card called SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION , i tried to do a reset on the sd card put it gives me an error " couldnt be formatted , i dont mind loosing all the files on the sd card since i hace a copy on my laptop, i just want to factory format my sd card ...can anyone help me please
i tried taking full ownership of the forlder and sd card but it resets back everytime i open the sd card ,all i want to do is format the sd card, i dont care about the files inside since have a copy of my pics and music. I dont know what else to do, and dont want to throw away the sd card since its a 64gb card
im not even able to add files to the sd card its so stressing .

this are the folders i have inside the sd card
documents
downloads
music
pictures
skydrive
system volume information (weird)
torrent
videos
.dropbox.device ( weird)

i cant even use the sd card to store files. and if i change a setting on the sd card or try to take ownership it wont let me , i tried deleting all the folders but they keep coming back.

System Volume Information is a standard system folder that you will find on every partition of a modern Windows system. It stores things like recovery data. Did you even do a search at all? http://www.bing.com/search?q=%22Syst...information%22

Did you check the Music folder on the SD card to see if the files had been transferred there? Did you check the used space on the card to see if the multiple gigabytes that many songs would have taken up were consumed? Sorry if these seem like really basic questions, but I can't make assumptions here.

Format failing is weird, but the next step I'd try would be to un-mount the card. Use Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) or the command-line tool mountvol.exe (run CMD or Powershell as Admin) to remove the drive mapping, then try Disk Management, diskpart.exe, or the format command. Use the volume name if you need to (after un-mounting, there won't be a drive letter or mount point, of course).

If you can get the SD card on a non rt PC try out this tool: Official SD

The tool also works with flash drives.
