CFast card alert, Help!

Mon Nov 06, 2017 6:36 pm

Has anyone ever gotten the alert "Recording medium is not (yet) ready" when inserting their Cfast card.

I just used the same card the previous week and they worked fine but inserted the same card yesterday and got this message.

The card I'm using is a Lexar 256GB 3600x card.

These cards are hard to find and was hoping that someone here can help me alleviate this issue!

Thanks,
Jon

The card will not come back to life.
If you bought it from ARRI, we may be able to give you a replacement, as we have a few left on stock. If you bought them elsewhere, please contact Lexar support to receive a credit. https://www.lexar.com/support.html

I have a bunch of these Lexar 256 cards.

Are their known issues with them? I've been hearing grumblings from Alexa Mini users around the internet. I haven't experienced any problems...yet. Should I anticipate issues???
