I bought a NOOBS card back in 2016 which worked fine, until I somehow messed it up badly (don’t ask!). It doesn’t boot and doesn’t recover either.
I now want to wipe the card and install Raspbian Buster as as per the official instructions to use in a RPi3. I want to use either Linux command line tools or the imager. But both these want a clean SD card, and I can’t seem to wipe this NOOBS SD card. I have tried
- diskpart (Windows) with Admin command prompt
- inserting it in an Andriod device and trying to clear it (it’s not detected)
- Paragon Partition Manager (Windows)
- SD Association’s SD Card Formatter (Windows)
All tools report success upon completion, but the partitions and the data remains. I am utterly mystified by this!
What are your suggestions?
