On Windows, check to see if it shows up in Device Manager. You can get there from right clicking Computer. On Linux, try GParted or associated graphical partition tool and see if it shows up and can be reformatted.

Edit: Windows try "disk management."

Thank you! She fixed it with KDE Partition Manager with your advice. You both saved me from ruining a brand new card.

Funnily enough I think I know how to fix this in windows 10 in command line but my only laptop that has both windows 10 and the required card reader hasn’t been wanting to boot into win 10. (And I haven’t felt like reinstalling. Maybe this weekend?) It’s been ages since I have played with a partition manager in Linux. Thanks for the tips, you kept me from having to play with the google!
