Empty SD card still says it's full

We have deleted all the data off of our SD card.  However, when we try to use the card in our action camera, it still says "card full". How can we fix this problem?

Re: Empty SD card still says it's full

How did you delete the files? Using a Mac or PC? is using a mac, you have to empty your Trash while the drive/card is still connected. Otherwise if you don't, only the 'reference' to the files will be deleted, not the actual files themselves.
