Hi what size card are you trying?

Has this card worked in the past?

Hi Neil,SD/extreme/32GB/90mbs/class10

the card is used all the time. It is for a UAV (unmanned Aerial vehicle)and needs this type of card to handle the amount of data gathered.

If the card size has worked in the past then it should be fine... It could be a faulty card or the card reader on the camera ghas failed...

Check inside the card slot for any foreign matter, you will need a flash light... If clear and all pins sitting up then you will need to try a different card... If the new card is the same then the reader has failed
