The SD card could have become corrupted, or it could be as simple as removing it and reinserting it again. On particularly cold days, when I've had the radio out in the elements for a while, I can get the same error, and removing the batteries, taking out the card, putting it back in, and putting the batteries back in made it work again.

If it's actually corrupted, you may have to either format the SD card (look on the RadioReference forums for advice on how to do that - some people prefer using a specific formatting program, others use the format feature in Windows) or buy/use an entirely new card.

In any case it's not a bad idea to have a backup (or two) anyway.

If you need to format the card go to SDformat.org and DL SDFormatter and use only that to format the card.
This will happen on occasion. I usually keep a spare card ready to go just in case.
