 After you have the cover off, thoroughly clean and remove all of the white silicone glue from the SD card holder. This picture shows the holder with a card in it -- this is from an older Mavic.

 After inserting the new SD card, carefully attach a battery and power on the aircraft. Allow it to boot completely. If the rear light blinks yellow instead of staying solid red, you're good to go.
