Try another computer. If it does not format then it is defective. Get a new one.

This may be the formatting type you have on the card. Is it NTFS (better) or FAT32 (not as efficient)?

Take your memory card out of the device and switch the position of the "lock" tab. One position is for "locked" (i.e., "Write Protected") and the other position will allow the card to be written to (unlocked). NOTE: Some cameras have image protection built into the on-camera software and you may need to configure this there.

Maybe that is acting as a boot drive. If you do not need it as a boot drive, consider formatting the drive.

Your computer may need drivers installed for your flash drive. Visit your USB drive manufacturer's website, find the "Support" page, and download the drivers for your specific drive. Be sure to know what version of your operating system you are running as it may be necessary to ensure you get compatible drivers. Install the drivers and try again.

Put your drive into a USB port on your computer. Right click on that drive after it appears in My Computer and select Format; set the File System drop-down to NTFS (better file storage space) or FAT32 (more compatibility in older operating systems) and click Start.

Put your drive into a USB port; right click on that drive after it appears in My Computer and select Properties. On the "General" tab, change the label text in the field at the top and click OK to save your change. You have a limit of 11 characters and stick with letters and numbers (spaces are not allowed but you can use an underscore character "_" instead or a space character).

It is possible that your new phone isn't compatible with this old 16GB SD memory card
It is also possible that this 16GB SD memory card simply has died but you can verify this by testing it by trying to access this SD memory card in any computer capable of reading a SD memory card if it not found then this SD memory card simply has died

There should be instructions on the printer itself

Unprotect the card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Probably you just copied a shortcut to the location of the files. You need to go back and verify whether this is the case.
