Re: GoPro session stops recording

As an update to my earlier post on this topic, I found that the first card I'd been using in the GoPro (a Sandisk ultra mini SD) actually seems to have become corrupted, so it may have been the specific card rather than the type. It doesn't work in another camera I have and it won't format in my PC or that camera. Hope this helps.

Re: GoPro session stops recording

I have a GoPro Hero 3+, with the GoPro Battery BacPac the camera just stops recording altogether. When I started the camera the red light blinked on and I assumed it was working. When I checked the camera, no video. When I tried to restart all I got was the symbols for "Video", "Camera", Time-Lapse", but I would not start. I had to remove the BacPac battery and the interal Battery to reset.

 

I tried this morning sans BacPac and the camera worked fine. Needless to say I will be bringing back the bettery BacPac. Quite disappointing when you think you are shooting and epic ride and you get home and all is blank.

Re: GoPro session stops recording

Same issue here and same card here. Going to try it at 960 and 720 to see if it still shuts off. This camera is pretty much useless to me at this point and I'm afraid I'm going to loose some fantastic moments this weekend when I am in Maui.

Re: GoPro session stops recording

Samsung Pro SD cards work flawlessly for me. I've had several issues with SanDisk so I never use them anymore. Lexar 633x or 1000x are also pretty good. The 633x is the cheapest option. You can also try doing a manual update. Even if the camera is on the latest firmware, this sometimes straightens it out. Hold down the shutter button until the camera resets. Format your card by selecting delete all in the camera. Download the update and restart the camera.

Hopefully this will get you going.

Regards,

Daniel

Camera working again with Backpac had to clear the camera and redo the update using the SD card. Thank-you GoPro support team for your help

Re: GoPro session stops recording

Found it! My Hero4 Session suddenly stops recording after 5 secs... it is the microSD card. When I use the SanDisk UHS Class 3, works fine.. I purchased generic Class 10 and it always stops.. Class 10 is slower than UHS Class 3. You will find this problem with Canon DSLRs using slow chips as well. 

 

Here are some pics. hope they  help! I literally just figured this out now.

Re: GoPro session stops recording

I'm pretty convinced it was my memory card. I got to Maui. Was using the SanDisk Ultra 32G and it kept shutting off. I stopped into the local Walmart and bought a Sandisk Extreme 64 and it's been flawless for the whole trip. Underwater, long recordings etc. Just invest in the better card.
