Does anybody else gett this message?  Inspire 1 Pro using the DJI recommended Sandisk 32gb SD card.  The 32 Gb card was bought from DJI a couple of weeks ago.  I used it last week with no problem and have copied the files across to my PC.  Only formatted in the camera.

What else? Oh, I have managed to get the camera to work eventually using one of my original 16gb cards which has been formatted in the bird and on my pc every way possible left, right and centre so I guess that rules out formatting being an issue.

I have a job coming up immediately after my vacation so would really like some suggestions on a fix that doesn't involve returning my X5 to DJI.

Is there any error message in APP? What have you done before this issue occurs? Like format wrongly with PC?
So with the damaged SD card, the camera cannot self-check when the drone is powered on? Can the SD cards be recognized in PC?

Mindy,  the cards in question have only been formatted in the AC.  they are recognised by my pc.  The one in the Inspire was used successfully once and it's contents copied and ousted into a folder on my pc.  Then the files were deleted from the folder on the card and the card removed (following the safe removal protocol of the pc.). When re-inserted into the AC, the card is not recognised and will not operate in the Inspire (X5).  The card I am using in my P4P ape are to be working at the moment.

Well, many digital camera users are getting “SD card not initialized” error and after this they look forward to resolve this issue. But they can’t find a way to fix it. Hence, I recommend you that before you go for any way to troubleshoot, you must try to solve the issue by yourself. When this type of error takes place, at the time you have to first remove and then re-insert your card. After that, check if the problem is resolved or not.
