Describe what you mean with "won't work".

It just says no sd card detected on the app I have followed all the instructions but nothing. It's a 2gb card.
Thanks for your reply

I see!
Try to format the card with FAT32 (Windows) or MS-DOS (Mac) first.
Then it should work.

I also seem to have this exact same problem, I have tried 2 different memory cards (1GB and 16GB), I have formatted them on my PC to FAT32 and also formatted them on my Mac but no matter what I do, I plug the memory card into the camera, start the drone but Freeflight-mini always tells me no SD card!! I ahve all the latest updates, just bought the Mambo so no idea if the update caused this issue or not. The camera also seems to get very hot, not sure if that is normal, its working as I have a good picture and can fly FPV or just looking st the screen, but cant record any video. Am going to try a hard reset of the drone (Hold power button for 15 seconds and see if that makes any difference.

Paul, I just purchased a new micro SD card and installed it and my camera now recognises the SD card. The previous cards worked fine with my PC and cannon camera, but would not work with the Parrot camera. You might want to spend $10 on a new micro SD card and see if that fixes your issue, it did for me.
