GoPro Hero 5 "SD Card Error"

I have a Gopro Hero 5 Black, and whenever i try to record in 4k or 1080p 120 Fps, i can only record for about 15 seconds and then it stops recording and says "SD card Error". I have a 32gb Sandisc card, and it is nowhere being close to full. i have tried formating it on the gopro and reseting to factory settings, and it still happens. Is there a way to fix this?

Hey @nicecreek78113,

 

What specific SanDisk Card are you using? Those higher resolution modes require a specific type of card in order to be able to keep up with the write speed of the camera.

 

Make sure to check out our list of recommend SD Cards here:
