I am trying to get the PanelDue 7" screen to read from its internal SD card slot, however it comes up with an error. " Error 1 accessing SD card" Can someone help with this?
Do you have a 10-way ribbon cable connected between the PanelDue and the Duet WiFi, as well as the 4-pin main cable?

No I do not have a ribbon cable installed.
There is some more information here:

Thanks I have order one this evening.
Okay,I have connected the 10 pin ribbon cable between PanelDue 2.0 7" and Duet WiFi and I am still getting an error. I have the latest software loaded on the DuetWiFi board. Am I missing something? I have looked at the documentation and all seams to be correct pin to pin as laid out. It still will not read from the card.
Can you post photos showing how the ribbon cable is connected to the PanelDue and to the Duet WiFi? How long is the cable?
Here you go DC42the length is 800mm

800mm is too long. See https://duet3d.com/wiki/Connecting_an_LCD_control_panel
Okay, I have tried the 400mm and also the 200mm ribbon cable and it still has the same error as in the beginning. It will not read the SD card inserted in the PanelDue 7". Any other place to look?
Your connections look correct to me. Does the same SD card work in a PC? Is is formatted as FAT32?
The PanelDue controller board just connects the SD card pins on the 40-way connector to the pins on the 10-pin connector. Power for the SD card is provided by the TFT panel.
Is there a size limit to the SD card used? I have used everything from a 100mm to a 400mm cable and it still will not connect. Yes the SD card is formatted to FAT32 and works in my PC.
I am not aware of a size limit. The SD card I test with is 8Gb.
The SD card are limited to the SD 2.0 standard called SDHC so up to 32GB
Okay, I give up.. I have tried several different brands of SD cards, No help, I have tried different lengths of ribbon cable, No help,. Every time I try to connect to SD card on the PanelDue I receive the same error
"" Error 1 accessing SD card""
could the problem be in the PanelDue 2.0 control board or the DuetWiFi connection itself??
It's unlikely to be a problem with the PanelDue because the pins from the TFT socket are connected directly to the pins on the ribbon cable connector. It's a little more likely to be a problem with the Duet WiFi because a pin on the microcontroller is also involved. It's also more likely to be a problem with the TFT panel because that has the socket and it is also responsible for providing power to the SD card.
Just got round to try using sd card with my panel due and getting the same error.
