exFAT is just a filesystem, the standard partitioning/formating tools 
will be able to replace it without issue if the hardware works.

Your issues are more likely to be hardware related.

Do make sure you are using a recent enough card reader for the capacity 
of the cards and it's also properly connected / powered (i.e. not 
through your defective USB hub you discovered at some point).

Of course, the card itself may just be defective ;)
