GoPro Hero 5 SD card error message

I have an issue where when i try to start recording with the camera and it only gets 10 seconds of recording before freezing for 3 seconds then popping up the sd error message. Can take pictures fine, but cant record with it because of error. If anybody knows a fix for this, I'd gladly appreciate it.
