Hello Mr Kristopher,

You don't need any software to format your card. To format the card follow the steps below:

Connect the card via card reader but do not open it. Close any screen that comes up.

Now go to My Computer > Right-click on the card > Select Format. Wait for few minutes to complete the formatting.

Hope this helps. Best regards.
