I'm having an SD card error on my Hero 6 black.

The card reads Micro SD HC 64GB.  

 

I can remove it, put it back and it will work, but then goes bad again.

 

I'm not sure what the mfg is on this Micro SD, I got several as a gift.  

 

One time when I inserted the micro sd into the slot, I got a little bit of a shock and a puff of smoke came out.  But this stopped.  And now it works intermittently.

Stop using that card.

Use a SanDisk Extreme v30, Extreme Plus v30 or Extreme Pro v30 (the v30 printed on the card is important) with your Hero6.

It looks like the Micro SD card was the issue.  Issue a high speed SanDisk Extreme micro SD it seems to work fine now.  Thanks all.
