SANDISK ULTRA 64GB SDXC MICRO SD - How can i format to FAT32 ?

Previous STORY:

 

Last week i bough one of these.......all starrt when i was copying a file (2gb) with Windows 8  (just to show for the first time)...the transfer were stuck at 50%...after 30 minutes i removed the SD...

 

Then i tried to format...and started to work bad...(in Windows or Mac). Then i started to try to format it to FAT32....EXT4, etc with a lot of programs (included GPARTED Ubuntu). But all failed.....then the memory WENT to a completely "READ-ONLY" behaviour.

 

I changed the SDXC to micro SD adapter and the USB to Micro SD and still "READ-ONLY". Tried on an android phone etc.

 

PRESENT:

 

So now i'm scared.....the vendor changed my SD card for a newone after tried it. They told me that I could format it to FAT32.....

 

So i wanted to ask in SANDISK forums which method is recommended to format to FAT32.

 

Can i format it to FAT32, EXT4, etc etc?

 

Best Regards,

Sebastian.
