Hero 7 Black SD Card Question

[ New ]

Hi all - New user here with a quick question.

 

I recently purchased this SD card off amazon 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FCMKK5X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1

SanDisk 128GB Extreme MicroSDXC UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter - C10, U3, V30, 4K, A2, Micro SD - SDSQXA1-128G-GN6MA

 

I checked the list of approved SD cards and it seems that the model number is correct but the description is not. Could someone help with whether this card is OK or not for the Hero 7 black? 

 

Thanks!

Hi @spirystar65074,

 

That should be fine.

Thanks so much Jay - Just wanted to check since I got a random SD read error after about 50gigs of footage on it. Not sure if maybe I just bumped it too hard or if I was just unlucky.

Hi @spirystar65074,

 

Not sure if its the camera or the SD card.

I encounter that sometimes.

 

But what I'm doing every time I'm having that problem is I download the firmware of my camera manually and reformat the SD card.

After that the SD card error should be fixed. 

 

You might want to check as well if you purchased a legitimate SD card. 

 

 

Regards,

-Jay
