Hero 9 Black Not Formatting SD[ New ]
I have a BRAND NEW GoPro HERO 9 Black that i just got 2 days ago. I also have a BRAND NEW SD card I just got this morning out of the package. It is a Lexar 512-GB 633x Micro SDXC UHS-I, model # LSDM512BBNL633A, and it is currently on the list of approved SD cards for my Hero 9 camera (here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/SD-Cards-that-Work-with-GoPro-Cameras/ta-p/394308). Before I did anything I put the brand new SD card into my Hero 9 camera and tried to format it. An hour later it was still trying to format and my battery was running low. I have tried everything, including googling a potnetial fix. Nothing. I've wasted $60 on an SD card that I can't get to work! Has ANYBODY had this issue with the Lexar 512-GB SD card and gotten it to work somehow? I'd hate to think I wasted all this money when I purchased the SD card because it was listed on GoPro's Forums under approved cards for my specific Hero 9 model... Any help would be MUCH appreciated!
