Exclamation [Q] Ext4 Memory Card 64 GB cannot be formatted

Dear Brainaics
I've got an issue,
My sd card is 64 gb sandisk class 10
I was using Pro Bam android 4.4.1 on my n7100
So I formatted my memory card within the rom.. It was fat 32 or ntfs
Later I got some issues with the rom, So I installed the stock rooted rom.
Ever since that I've been getting an unsupported file system.
Format Card - It shows formatting - then unsupported file system error - This goes on and on.
So i tried mounting it in Linux Ubuntu & try to format using gparted & terminal.
My data is there.. The card reads & all.
But I can't format it.
These are all the steps i've taken, I even tried sd formatter I got somewhere from xda!
Any useful info would be greatly appreciated by me offcourse mentally.
I mean i crave for knowing the reason behind this anomaly!
Have a good day...

Can you delete any files on the card? I had a 64gb SanDisk card that had all my data but I couldn't format it, copy files or delete files from it, either on my phone or laptop.

SanDisk replaced it for me as it had developed a fault.
