Hi @eddb1668,

 

Please check this link for list of recommended SD card: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations 

 

Also please check if you are reformatting it using SD card adapter, make sure the physical lock is not on locked position. 

 

 

Regards,

-Jay

The manual states these requirements:

  • microSD, microSDHC, or microSDXC
  • Class 10 or UHS-I rating
  • Capacity up to 256GB

My card is a 259 GB, microSDXC, Class 10.  So, it should work, but the GoPro doesn't recongize it.

is it on the recommended list of cards?  do you think it needs to be  correctly formatted in a card reader and a computer?

It was a Scandisk off Brand.  I purchased a Scandisk Extreme and all is well now.  Lesson learned.
