Have you any files on the card? If so try deleting them first.

Then try full format the SD card (Not quick format)

I did this a min ago..all I got was failed to format.
I had to return the card into the I1 and format it there before I could use it again.

I never get it right anymore so i stop trying it was getting frustrated normally exfat works fine with the inspire 1 but if you press once format via your tablet and your drone is formatting it you can shake it to put it in the computer again for opening it. i decided to buy a bigger one today's day they're not that expensive anymore.

I had this issue today. Maybe because I manually deleted a couple files and then accidentally disconnected before ejecting on my mac.

I fixed it by formatting - tried Fat32, then ExFat, then Fat 32 twice more.. went through a bunch of errors but it finally worked... once the Fat32 format held up, the Mavic was able to format through the controller.

I know Macs are notorious for this and there are some programs that are out there that are dedicated to formatting SD cards on the MAC's .  I personally own a MAC but I always advise to format the SD card on the Aircraft if you can  and then install the firmware update.  Even then I have had issues with my MAC and just go to my trusty PC for loading the FW.  I consider myself pretty good with computers and Macs  and have not pinned down why it gives so many problems .  I usually tell NewBies to just Format  SD on the AC and then downlaod the BIN file to    the SD card via  a PC , then once they know the  basics of updating and what to look for , then try there MAC's and see if they have success. Cant even tell you the number of times this has solved and update issue .

Good Luck and have fun
