Camera will not save to sd card after oreo update

Does anyone else have this problem - I opened camera after updating to Oreo and there is an icon on screen of an sd card in red with an exclamation mark ❗ next to it, and a message saying 'cannot save to sd card, use internal storage instead?' obviously I don't want to do this, is this a known issue that will be fixed soon, or do I need to do something? I have tried unmounting sd card, restarting phone. Any advice please?!

I don't experience such an issue. Do you have enough free space on the card? Is it possible to copy a file to it?

Hi yes 22gb free on card. Couldn't copy file initially but after a couple of unmounts/mounts it is now working, and camera is using sd card for storage. Thanks for reply.

OK so this is not solved, it keeps doing it when I go back to camera and I have to unmount and remount sd card every time I want to take a photo. Either that or use internal storage, which will quickly run out.

@Shazbat

Try transferring anything on the SD card to your PC, then format the SD card from within the phone.
