I have a 128 gb SD card that all my downloads were going on.  All of a sudden the computer (both Mac and PC) stopped recognizing it.  It doesn't show up when I install it.
What happened was, I was watching a movie off of the SD card, and I shut the laptop cover (putting it to sleep).  When I opened it up, the computer said "SD card not ejected properly".  After that, it is all screwed up.

You could try,
http://www.piriform.com/recuva

to see if you can recover files from it,  then reformat it.   If you don't have files to save, then right-click it in Computer and format.   This will rebuilt the structure, but wipe whatever files might be there.

since it does not work on a PC or Mac, i suppose it just went bad
do you need to recover anything from it?  if not, buy a new one

When you connect it to PC and then go to Windows Disk Management (right click on My Computer - Manage - Disk Management) does it show the card there?
Even unformatted.
If not then - yes, the card is dead. If you have luck then you get it replaced by warranty.
