GoPro Hero 5 Black only saves first chapter when I try to loop

I wanted to use this as a camera to capture any accidents I may get in on my motorcycle but when I use the looping setting it only records the first chapter that it starts on and nothing else. I've tried the 20min loop and it only saves the first 5min chapter and everything after is lost. I also have used the 5min which does the same with the first minute. I even tried starting the recording through my phone but same thing. I also have swapped the micro sd card from a SanDisk Ultra Plus to a SanDisk Extreme Plus which on the GoPro website says is compatable. I also checked the version of the gopro and it is up to date for me on I think 2.60.

Hi @dawsonk866

 

Your should be able to play the file on your camera.

Please note that it will only show one file for the rest of the loop.

 

 

Thanks!
