Hello there vdh. I am sorry for the trouble this has caused and thank you for reaching out. Kindly please try using a different suggested microSD card on your DJI Mavic 3 for us to be able to isolate the said issue. For reference I will post the list of suggested microSD card for the DJI Mavic 3. Thank you.

yes, my SD card was an approved one , it came out of my Mavic 2 pro . I had to format it on my PC to ex fat before the Mavic 3 would recognise it.I thought the Mavic 2 also used ex-fat ?

Always a good idea to reformat a card in the actual unit, especially if it is coming from another device (camera, other drone, etc,)

Hi there vdh. Thank you for the reply and as posted below by EFRPIC, it would be best to format the said microSD card on the said DJI drone. Thank you and keep flying.

I couldn't reformat on the Mavic 3 because it would not even recognise it until I reformatted it on my computer to ex-fat. Then after the Mavic 3 recognized it , I reformatted it in the drone

Hi, I'm having the same issue.  The drone won't even recognize the SD card to format it.

I have same problem with my new Mavic 3, but my problem was, that Mavic was connected to computer and SD card not recognized. While I unpluged cable from PC, SD card was recognized.

This will resolve the problem. Take your Micro SD card out of the Mavic.  Slide it into your SD card adapter. Get a camera or ask a friend that has one and format the card via the camera. Replace SD card into Mavic and then you should be good to go!
