Mbed filesystem mount fails


I am using the platform Nucleo-f207zg, and currently trying to use an SD card.

I am running the https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os-example-sd-driver example and it works with one of my SD cards which I have been using for a long time with my codes and even this example.

The first time I tried using this SD card I had a bad time, and now that I am trying with new SD cards, again a lot of problems. I already formatted the new cards with Mac OS disk utility and with Windows using the guide on https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os-example-sd-driver.

The programs always deliver the same error

--- Mbed OS filesystem example ---
Mounting the filesystem... Fail :(
No filesystem found, formatting... Fail :(
error: Unknown error (-5005)

Does anyone have any suggestion?

Hello Zoltan,

I already did as suggested and now it just stays forever mounting the fileSystem. I do have two 16GB Class 10 SD cards working, and the one that is not working is a default 8GB Kingston SD Card. I don't know if this has something to do...

Thank you for your time answering! I wonder what is wrong?
