How can I remove the SD card from the GoPro Hero 8 Black

[ New ]

Hi all,

 

I don't know if this is a common issue but I can't for the life of me remove the SD card from the new GoPro Hero 8 Black. My fingers are a little thicker than average I guess but still can't seem to get a grip on it. I removed the battery and attempted to drag it out buuuut that snapped it in half. . . . . . . 


The only way I can currently remove the SD card is with a pair of tweezers which I'd ideally not have to use.

 

Aaaaaaanyone at all have any idea how to bypass this? Otherwise I'm feeling I may need to send it back.

 

Thanks

I got the exact problem.  I've had to start carrying around a pair of surgical Hemostats to remove the card.  I can eject it with my fingernail, but I can't grab it to pull it out.

Tape it not really a good idea; the card gets very hot, and the tape will reduce heat dissipation!

Until it makes short-circuit in the gopro or any card reader and causes damages... So yes but no; it's worse than normal tape.

Only Kapton would be acceptable solution as tape.

Wrong too. Forget tape. IMHO.
