Format SD Card in Hero 7 Black

I have an error 'sd card error' and I watched some videos how to fix it but if i try to format my sd card it will take forever and my gopro battery will just run out because it takes so long. Can anyone help me or did anyone already have this issue already?

Re: Format SD Card in Hero 7 Black

Hi @noblemesa84144,

 

Looks like your SD card is damaged. 

 

May I know the brand and model of your SD card please?

 

Have you tried reformatting it using a computer?

Please let us know.
