Hallo meine Gopro 7 Black hat probleme mit einer Neu gekauften Speicherkart (Samsung Evo Plus 256GB Class 10)

Not all cards (even the same make/model/size) are created equal. It sounds like you have a bad card. You can format it with this tool https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/index.html
Be sure to select the option for a FULL Overwrite. It's going to take a considerable amount of time, but it will leave your card in the best shape possible.

Once done, you can try formatting in the camera. If it formats in the camera you should be good to go.

Why are you using such a large storage card? Are you doing long recordings with external power? The larger the storage the greater the chances of issues. Unless you really need it, stick to 64GB cards for the best performance.
