Hello. My name is Michael. I will be your Primary Care Technician and I can assist you with your question.

It's possible that the camera is having difficulty accessing the card. This could mean that the card has become faulty or that the data on the card is corrupt. If that card is faulty it will need to be replaced (I will provide a link below). However, if the card is OK it may simply need to be formatted. You can do that from the settings menu. Please try formatting the card and using it again. If you cannot format it in the camera, you can put it into a computer with a compatible card reader and format it there, then try it in the camera. If this doesn't work, you may need to replace the card. Here is a suitable replacement card:

Please let me know if you have any questions.
