Hi @lawrenceg573,

 

The largest sized SD Card that is recommended for GoPro Cameras is 128GB. This questions has been answered in this thread as well: https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/256-GB-SD-Card/td-p/38504

Re: Can you use a 256gb card in a hero 5 black?

Good afternoon to all on the site! Thank You for the quick reply on my question! My plans are to use my Hero 5 Black on my motorcycle (2001 Honda Valkyrie Trike) The camera was given to me by our two children for my birthday. We have two great kids and I have a wonderful wife as well!  I found another post about size of memory cards that made sense, it talked about having a big card and the possibility of losing ALL of the info if you lose the camera or have technical difficulties. Makes sense. I'm going to stay with the 128gb card.

Thanks again for the help!
