"Card Error" message on Olympus OM-D E-M5

Hi

I have just taken delivery of a new Olympus OM-D-E-5. I inserted a new Sandisk SHDC Ultra Class 10 30MB/s card to find "Card Error" displayed on the screen. I carefully checked with the seller of the card before purchase, that it was compatible with the camera. The card does not generate this message in another camera, and the card from the other camera does not generate this message when inserted into the Olympus.

I have been advised that I should format the card whilst in the Olympus but when I attempt to do so, this process does not seem to work. With the card installed, I select Menu>Preliminary & basic shooting options>card setup>Format>Yes (This results in a message Caution erasing all)select Yes>results in 'busy'. but then this display lasts only a couple of seconds then reverts to the default Menu display. The above error message is once more displayed.

Any suggestions please, simple terms preferred!!

Many Thanks
