Automatic GoPro SD memory check...

I have some SD memories and I would like to verify if any of my memories are compatible with my cameras (I have different gopro models). To do that, I have to try to make a video and then verify if the video is really saved ... sometimes, when memory fails, it does not fail on the first try. It's a long and tedious job...

  

Now, thinking...

  

What about if the GoPro camera has a function in which it automatically tries to write in full a SD memory with a file/s (automatically generated by the camera with an algorithm) and then tries to read the file to determinate if the file/s in the SD card are fine or are corrupted to be able to verify if the memory is compatible with The GoPro camera model...

 

Nobody thought about that?

 

I just think that could be a very useful feature to have in such a good camera.

It's always best if your are using one of the recommended SD cards.
