I wouldn't trust the card, then.  If the card has gone bad, rather than
the computer just messed up the data it puts on it, chances are it's
just going to get worse and worse.  If reformatting didn't help you,
I'd say get rid of the card to do yourself a favour.  Perhaps see if
the card had a long warranty on it.

For what it's worth, I don't re-use SD cards.  I've had bad experiences
with re-used cards, and with re-formatting then.

I used to use them with my camera, before I got a phone with a good
camera.  And I still use them with Zoom and Tascam sound recorders. 
But I just fill them up (though not to 100%), then store the full ones
on the shelf as my back-up, and put a new card in the device.  As
someone who started off in photography with 35 mm film, the idea of
"stashing the negatives for posterity" is still in my mindset.

Mind you, these aren't $100+ cards.  They're store bought Sandiscs (and
other brands I trust) costing around $40 for 64 gig, or less for 32
gig.  Quite apart from the devices having size limits for the cards
they support, I found that really huge cards meant far too many files
to comfortably work with on speed-limited media or card readers.
