Hi @quickridge40537,

 

Please reformat your SD card using a Computer.

Make sure that it is on default format so that it won't cause any problem. 

 

Thanks,

Wipe your SD card in a PC as suggested.  Also check the SD card for any errors by right clicking on the card and clicking the "tools" option.  After your card has passed you need to put it back in your gopro and format the card in the GoPro camera.  This will ensure the card is using the proper format that is compatibale with your gopro.  You can either do this directly from the GoPro or use the GoPro app, but you should not skip this step.
