Three beeps and three red flashes

I had this issue today and the article that "solves" this said to format the SD card - this was unacceptable so i kept on trying a few things, you do not need to format the SD card (at least i didn't) i just had to turn it off, unplug the device from usb, remove SD card and battery, reinsert battery and sd card, turn it on, plug it back in and the beeps and flashes stopped, USB logo came on screen and all was working.

I had nearly 3 hours of footage on the sd card i was wanting to upload, so try the above if you do not want to format.
