Toshiba 32GB FlashAir SD card & a K-3

I have just taken delivery of a Toshiba FlashAir 32GB card for my K-3. It works between my K-3 and a wireless device (laptop/tablet/android phone). I cannot, however, get the camera to recognise the card as a wireless card. When I click on wireless card in the camera menu it says, "there is no wireless SD card in slot 2".
Does anybody out there know how to persuade my K-3 that it really does have a wireless card in slot 2?
Many thanks in advance

What do the FlashAir instructions say?
They should be pretty generic since the FlashAir is not camera specific.

I have an older version of the Toshiba FlashAir card (v2.0) and an older camera (K-5II) - but as far as I know, the menu on the K-3 for wireless card is only for the flucard.
In order to use the FlashAir card, you have to set it up according to the Toshiba "user guide" included with the product (as you've already done)

The native in-menu functionality only applies to the O-FC1 FluCard (for tethering) or Eye-Fi cards (for file transfers).

Thanks rawr, the card instructions only tell how to set up between sd card and PC/Android/Tablet.
Thanks Caver, as you say, it's fine between the card and the PC, Which is what I want for an upcoming wedding so that people can see what I'm getting in real time.
Thanks Adam, I guessed it was going to need a Flucard, even a Pentax specific Flucard. Ho hum it meets my needs as is, I just wanted all the bells and whistles on my new toy.
