SOURCE: Memory Card Format Fail
Never format a memory card using windows. Always use the camera to format it.
In genereal though, cards do not need formating before use, the camera will sort this out for you

SOURCE: memory card cannot read!!!
sometimes lapstops and PCS as well as Cameras can go out of line. That is the formatting in a particular PC may not be able to be read in another.
In you case this may not be so, as the card now cannot be seen. It would have been interesting to see if it could have read it before it was formatted by your laptop. Try another card in the camera first. If no other card can be read then the problem is on the read head of the camera.
This may be just dirt or damage, and it will have to be repaired. But try another card first as the card is cheaper than a repair.
Thanlks for using FIXYA
