Thumbs down SanDisk Ultra Series 4GB CF not formatting

Hi all - Having got hold of a SanDisk 48GB CF, we're still unable to format the CF inside windows 7 to work with the amiga.

When trying to Format with the recommended FAT32 GUI Formater, we are given the error message in the first attached image.

When attempting to format using the Diskpart, we are able to clean the drive but not to format it. This can be seen in the second attached image.

Further efforts to format using windows disk management end with error message "The format did not complete successfully"

Final attempts to format with windows options gives us the error message "Windows was unable to complete the format"

Is there no way we can format this CF on our win 7 pc to work with the amiga pcmcia?

We have heard that these SanDisk Ultra CF cards are the best to use for transfering files bettween the pc and the amiga via the pcmcia. Presently our SanDisk CF is unreadable by either platform.
