GoPro 8 Black Format Issues

At first I used a 32gb u3 card, which has worked great in my sessions. But the 8 almost instantly had a format error and said it would have to erase the card to function again.

Someone recommended getting a bigger card to up the write speed for the 8, so I got a 128 gb card. Today I got up at 4 am to get some really killer shots, only to have it error on me and wipe the card out of no where.

Needless to say I am very frustrated and I hope this is a problem that can be resolved and soon, I use this camera professionally and if I can't rely on it I'll have to go somewhere else.

 

Austin.
