    Hi all,

    I'm new to flying my P3S and recently after a flight, my drone decided it wasn't going to read SD cards anymore. I tried the card that came with the drone when I got it along with a 32gb microSD card. I attempted to reformat the cards both on the drone (via the app) and on my computer which haven't resulted in any success.

    I was able to update the firmware on the P3S today, which is better than the last time I tried.

    Beyond exchanging/getting new cards, what other things could I do to try and get the card back working?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you getting the SD card to format in the computer, can you copy stuff to the Sd card with the computer?
