Two things come to mind, try reformatting it with a PC. Secondly, the card could be failing. When you format the card, see how much space is usable. It should be around 29+ GBs after being formatted (or there about). If it formats to around 20GB than the card is failing. Although rare these days it does happen. I had a card go bad on my niece's wedding for the final shot of all things. Family doesn't want me doing photos now. Not certain if this is a bad thing though.

PS forgot to mention. Fell sorry for this to happen on a wedding. Have been in this situation while shooting our family New Year celebration. That is why now want to use CF + SD workflow separating NEF and JPG files... if some thing happens at least something is available.
