HP Proliant Gen8 SD-CARD issue - iLO diagnostic


I hope you can help me because I am experiencing an issue regarding the internal SD-card reader. 

 The main use of this part of the hardware is to boot a SSD which uses the ODD SATA Port. Once the SSD loads, the SD-card is not load anymore, until a server reboot (almost never). 

 Everything was working properly until this weekend when, suddenly, the server went powered off and stucked at boot point. Then I checked the iLO Diagnostics panel and I found this:

"Controller firmware revision 2.10.00 Embedded media manager failed initialization".

Well, I did a bootable USB to keep the server working but I really want to know where can be the problem, because it is really strange if it was broken "by use", when the "use" of the SD reader is, almost, 0.

Thank you so much for your help!
