New Pi 2 doesn't boot

Bought a kit from Currys, Rpi, power, leads and SD. Instructions said plug all in insert card power up and you're away. Didn't boot, a little research and realise from ACT led that it's not reading card. Nothing showing on card in Windows or Ubuntu so do a full format of card (16Gb). Whilst waiting ...
