SD memory card issues

I have a Canon Rebel T6 and I recently formatted the sd card following some online instructions. Now, neither my computer nor my camera are able to read the card. does anyone know what might have caused this and/or what to do to fix it? Thank you.

Could be a sign.

Not a good one. Here I just follow my camera's instruction as to format it WE MUST DO THAT IN THE CAMERA FOR MAXIMUM COMPATIBILITY.

I own both the Canon t3i and now a t6i.

But there are many fake cards out there and if you can't format it in the camera I worry it's either incompatible or FAKE.

Try https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ BUT be sure to format in the camera later.

Tell more about this SD card? Cheap Ebay thing?

No clue

I don’t know whether it’s cheap or not. My dad just gave it to me along with the camera. It’s been working fine for over 2 years that I’ve had it and I just formatted it to have a lot of space for a thing I’m doing next week and it worked but then when I tried to put it back into the camera it said error. Idk why

Please tell what you tried after my reply.

Format in the camera. And do try the sdcard.org formatter.

Your reply does not tell me you tried it my way.

But at over 2 years that's not bad at all. These cards do not last forever and you'll have the occasional client that is trying to save the card. These are too cheap to spend any technician time on which can upset some.
