Is the lock switch on the card activated? It's pretty easy to move inadvertently when swapping cards.

Nope not locked just checked that. The card its having problems with is Panasonic 64GB Gold Series SD Card for 4K Video Enabled Cameras and it has worked for a few months but just today has came up with that message.

I would recommend formatting it then, if that doesn't help then send it in for an exchange, most cards have really long warranties these days.

Note that formatting deletes all photos, so make sure they're copied to your computer first.

I had a card, which I later disposed of, where the lock switch got damaged making it almost impossible to insert to camera slot without moving the switch from 'not locked' to 'locked'. Had to put up withit for a week or so when I was too busy to go out to buy a replacement, and the busyness included taking many pictures.

That sounds like the card's filesystem may be corrupted. If that card has important images or other files on it, they should be copied as soon as possible because there's a good chance the problem will only get worse.

After making sure you have all the files (and check a few to make sure they are OK), then reformat the card.
