An old memory card I installed CHDK on won't work with a new camera.

I installed CHDK on a Transcend 32-GB Class-10 SDHC Card for use with a Canon Powershot S100.  That camera broke, so I can't test it or use it to try to format the card, but the card always worked with it.  The card hasn't been used since then.  I got a new Canon G9X, and it shows an error message with the card inserted.  The Format option is unavailable in the camera's menu.  The computer could read that card fine, and I formatted it using Windows' tool, as well as SD Association's SD Memory Card Formatter, with the card's Lock both on and off.  I don't know what else I can do.  I tested the camera with a different card, and it works.

Is there a way to repair this problem so I can continue to use this card and not have to buy another?

Are there 2 driveletters in explorer? Then You would probably need a tool to undo that.  :-[
&& ThereĀ“s no port nor thread for G9x.

I got a new Canon G9X, and it shows an error message with the card inserted.
What specific error message does the G9X show?

If the card was used for CHDK in S100, it was probably partitioned, which I think is what Caefix is suggesting.

I would expect you could use windows storage management (diskmgmt.msc, also available from the "Computer Management" app) to delete whatever partitions are there. Be sure you have the card selected (not a system drive!) if you do this.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
