No card issue

PostSun Mar 12, 2017 12:59 pm

Not sure if this has been posted but anyone had a formatted card in your camera (Micro in this case), and after shooting a while it suddenly says 'No card' despite not being full nor being a problem shooting with it.
If so, how did you solve it? Any advice? Why does it The SD cards are new SanDisk Extreme Pro.
Do I need to tirn the camera infor repair or is this another issue that can be easily avoided by something I do with the camera.
Any advice? Preferably from someone with experience of it. Thanks in advance!

Turn the camera off, remove the card, replace the card, turn the camera on.

If it still says No Card, turn the camera off, remove the card, place in your SD card reader and connect to the computer. Does the computer see anything?

If all your files are visible, copy them to your computer and reformat the card, then place back in your camera and restart camera. Okay now?

If there are no files currently on your card, format it and try inserting it again.

Also, is the Sad card on the BM approved list? If not, it is not likely to work correctly, resulting in issues like this. I noticed you state it is a new SanDisk Extreme Pro, what size? Smaller GB cards are more problematic thatmlarger GB cards. 64GB is the smallest I would use. Next, where did you buy the card? There are fake cards out there, that just do not work right.

I would try another card, format it on a computer, put it in the camera, reformat it in the camera, then shoot a test. This waymto can eliminate a SD card issue and pinpoint if it is a possible camera issue.

Why is this post in Off Topic? It should be in Getting Started I would think, since it is about SD card working or not in a BM Micro camera.

I'm not sure why it was in the Off-Topic section either but it is now moved.
