SD card initialisation failed.....

I am using an Ethernet Shield, i first checked with cardinfo sketch to see if my SD card is being read.
It didnt, so i changed the code and after resetting the module miraculously my SD card was working.i tried to use it again after few days and the same problem started again. I have tried resetting it many times but this i wasnt lucky. The code i am using is below. Please help

// include the SD library:
#include <SPI.h>
#include <SD.h>

// set up variables using the SD utility library functions:
Sd2Card card;
SdVolume volume;
SdFile root;

// change this to match your SD shield or module;
// Arduino Ethernet shield: pin 4
// Adafruit SD shields and modules: pin 10
// Sparkfun SD shield: pin 8
const int chipSelect = 4;

void setup() {
// Open serial communications and wait for port to open:
Serial.begin(9600);
while (!Serial) {
; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for native USB port only
}

Serial.print("\nInitializing SD card…");
pinMode(10, OUTPUT); // set the SS pin as an output (necessary!)
digitalWrite(10, HIGH); // but turn off the W5100 chip!
// we’ll use the initialization code from the utility libraries
// since we’re just testing if the card is working!
if (!card.init(SPI_HALF_SPEED, chipSelect)) {
Serial.println(“initialization failed. Things to check:”);
Serial.println("* is a card inserted?");
Serial.println("* is your wiring correct?");
Serial.println("* did you change the chipSelect pin to match your shield or module?");
return;
} else {
Serial.println(“Wiring is correct and a card is present.”);
}

// print the type of card
Serial.print("\nCard type: ");
switch (card.type()) {
case SD_CARD_TYPE_SD1:
Serial.println(“SD1”);
break;
case SD_CARD_TYPE_SD2:
Serial.println(“SD2”);
break;
case SD_CARD_TYPE_SDHC:
Serial.println(“SDHC”);
break;
default:
Serial.println(“Unknown”);
}

// Now we will try to open the ‘volume’/‘partition’ - it should be FAT16 or FAT32
if (!volume.init(card)) {
Serial.println(“Could not find FAT16/FAT32 partition.\nMake sure you’ve formatted the card”);
return;
}

// print the type and size of the first FAT-type volume
uint32_t volumesize;
Serial.print("\nVolume type is FAT");
Serial.println(volume.fatType(), DEC);
Serial.println();

volumesize = volume.blocksPerCluster(); // clusters are collections of blocks
volumesize *= volume.clusterCount(); // we’ll have a lot of clusters
volumesize *= 512; // SD card blocks are always 512 bytes
Serial.print("Volume size (bytes): ");
Serial.println(volumesize);
Serial.print("Volume size (Kbytes): ");
volumesize /= 1024;
Serial.println(volumesize);
Serial.print("Volume size (Mbytes): ");
volumesize /= 1024;
Serial.println(volumesize);

Serial.println("\nFiles found on the card (name, date and size in bytes): ");
root.openRoot(volume);

// list all files in the card with date and size
root.ls(LS_R | LS_DATE | LS_SIZE);
}

void loop(void) {

}

Do you have an original Arduino Ethernet Shield? Chinese copies often have connection problems on ICSP connector which does not reach the Arduino board. Did you check if your have physical connection there (using a multimeter)?
