According to both Nikon and the review on this Web site, the D5000 takes SD and SDHC cards but does not take SDXC ones.  128 GB is larger than the capacity of any standards compliant SD or SDHC card.  What you have is a SDXC card.

That means that even if the camera appears to accept the card, Bad Things can happen.  The card is not likely to fry your camera.  Still, you could find that you cannot use the full capacity of the card.  Worse, the card could appear to work just fine; then, after you took lots of photos, you could find that many were corrupt or missing.

The safe thing to do here is to return to using SDHC cards in your D5000, and to put the SDXC card away for use with your next camera.
