Question about Sequential shooting on the E -M5

I recently acquired both three Fuji X Pro 1 and the Oly EM 5 ( blak and silver)

They are both wonderful cameras, but I find myself reaching more and more for the Oly due to
1 ) its size
2) quicker to focus
And 3) I have a collection of lenses including the 45 (Leica), 45 1.8 and 12

I took the Oly to shoot my kids dance recital this weekend, put it on hi speed Sequential shooting and was only able to get 3 shots off before it stopped firing)

I have a SanDisk 16 GB extreme pro 95 mb/ sec card in place which had recently been formatted in the camera

The 12-50 lens was also I place

I thankfully had my Nikon V1 also with me and quickly changed to that camera when I realized what was wrong.

I tried the Oly again at home, retread the manual and cant figure out what I am doing wrong

I have no trouble getting my other cameras to shoot at hi speed.

Did a search under sequential shooting in this form but was not able to come up with anything.

Any help would be appreciated. I have always been able to get help from the Forums and really appreciate it
