I don’t want to give up use of my remote. Can I get both to work at the same time?
I was hoping that once you completed the format, that the card would then allow things to work. Seems that's not the case.
Roku only uses 2 GB of a microSD card. In fact, Roku sells microSD cards for the devices that support them, and they only sell the 2 GB size cards. Are you using a larger card? There's no benefit to using a larger card, as it won't actually utilize the larger size.

Windows instructions, don't know what would differ on other systems: Do a slow (i.e. not "fast") format of the card via your computer. Select FAT32 and select it to use the default allocation size.
I used to have a Roku 3 that used an SD card. Apparently something caused the card to be corrupted occasionally. I could format the card in my PC as described above and I could get the Roku working with the card again. After about the third time of going through this I just decided the card was more trouble than it was worth and just left it out.
