GOPRO 7 MASSIVE DUPLICATION OF PICTURE

[ New ]

I have had my GoPro 7 Black for a little over 1 year. When I was using it this last March I had issues with turning the camera off and with taking a picture. The solution was to remove the battery and "reset" the camera. However, somewhere in that process one picture appeared repeatedly in the Memory, which I was able to delete. Now, when I went to download my pictures and videos to my computer, I found that same picture repeated at least 5000 times. I am in the process of deleting these repeated pictures 1X1.

 

What could have caused this massive repeat of 1 picture?

A faulty SD card would be the likely culprit.  Your camera keeps trying to recover a file from a bad sector everytime it starts and it keeps recovering the same file again and again and again.

 

Do a full format of your SD card in your PC and then format again in the camera and see if it helps.
