    What has it been formatted as? ExFat or Fat32?

    I have used that brand/model without issue. It may just be a bad card. Another member here had that with another brand card, he got it replaced and all was good.
    For fun, try formatting it in the Phantom.

    Maybe it is a bad card but I'm only formatting it in the Phantom 3.

    Bad card or counterfeit card. I use that same card (as have hundreds of others), so the card specs are fine. Did you buy it from a reputable dealer or some fly-by-night (so to speak) operation?

    I got it from B&H in New York so I'm thinking it's probably just a bad card.

    They're pretty good at taking care of you on something like this. Let 'em know!

    Yup I had a Sandisk Extreme 64 gig go bad in my Note 4. Sent it back and they sent me a new one, twice. 10 year warranty they are on the hook for a long time for it.

    Hate that you had two bad cards but the warranty is pretty good.
