Rub it slowly until the entire surface is clean. If you have ensured that the SD card especially on the copper plates have been clean, you can insert the SD card again into your android phone.

After that, switch on your android phone, go to “Setting” menu, select “Storage” and please check whether there has been an external memory or not on that menu. If it exists, it means it is successful. If you want to have a faster way, you can go directly to your Gallery. If you save some of your pictures on your SD card, it should be detected directly once you open the Gallery. If the photos appear on the Gallery, it means it is successful.

b) Formatting the SD card through the phone

Get into the Setting menu > Storage. In Storage menu, you can find an option namely “Erase SD card”. After the SD card has been formatted, please switched off your android phone, eject the SD card and re-insert the SD card and then switch on again the android phone. If it is detected, it means it is successful (but the consequence is the files in SD card will be gone/zero).
