Trying to adjust to this new camera, having a hard time.
Can someone please link to the -entire- list of beep codes and what they mean? Especially 1 long beep followed by 5 short ones.
Having issues with the camera stopping recording half way through with this error code, also with it dying and not coming back until the battery is pulled and put back in. Have lost hours and hours of good footage because of these issues.
Have tried various SD cards (which all work fine in my other camera) and am trying to record at 1080/60fps.

Instead of just saying various cards, please list which cards (make/model/size/version) as well as what settings you are using.
Do a full format of your SD card in your computer (not quick). Reset the camera and run a manual update. Once completed, do a format of the card in the camera.

Have tried various formatting procedures
Audio: Wind Reduction (locked)
4x Lexar Platnum II (Class 10, SD XC1, U1)
4x 64GB Sandisk Ultra (Class 10, SD XC1, U1)
2x 128GB Kingston Technology (Class 10, SD XC1, U1)
None are an issue in the other camera, also recording at 60fps, 1080p.

I know logic should dictate that if the card works in one camera it should work in all, but it's just not the case.
It's impossible to know for certain if it's a SD card error (which this appears to be) or camera issue, unless you are using a tested and recommended card.
If you can, get one of these cards https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/microSD-Card-Considerations
If you can't borrow one to test with, you should be able to get a 16-32GB relatively cheap.
My personal order of preference:
SanDisk Extreme v30 (it will have v30 printed on the card)
SanDisk Extreme (non-v30)
When you get the card, download and install the manual update (even if your are on the latest firmware). If it's not a new card, format it first.

I'm not buying a new card library. These cards meet the minimum specs outlined by the manufacturer, if the camera fails to function using them, it will have to be returned as it's not fit for purpose. They work absolutely perfectly in a Sony camera, so why not in a GoPro?
Back to my original question, does anyone have the full list of beep codes and what they mean?
3 beeps: Record start
5 beeps: Record end
Long beep: SD error
Is that all of them?
