Re: How long it take to format 256gb card in the go pro hero 7 black

 

Hi @markktm300,

 

Please try to use Quick Format using a PC.

If issue persist try to change SD card.

 

That might be a defective SD card. 

 

I would suggest to use SD card that has lower data capacity. 

 

Regards,

-Jay

Re: How long it take to format 256gb card in the go pro hero 7 black

I have used the quick format and full format, how can it be  defective when it works in my computer/laptop/tablet and my phone, it’s the card form go pros suggestions on compatible cards page. I don’t really want to buy another card as this cost me 65£ and I can’t return it as it works on my other stuff.  Go pro says it accepts the 256gb micro cards and it was one of the reasons I bought the GoPro Hero7 black. 

 

If problems persist I shall return the camera as don’t do what I says 

 

thanks mate

Thanks for getting back to us @markktm300

 

Is there a way for you to verify if you have the SD card model number as MB-MC256GA/AM?

 

I am not certain as to why this is happening. 

To further isolate the issue, another SD card needs to be tested on the camera.

For reference, you may check these articles:
