I have read all the looping explanations in this thread and I am still confused. To me - looping means that the camera should continue to record continually as long as it has power. I have my Hero3+ set on Max Looping - it records in 17 minute segments and that is fine. HOWEVER, once the 64gb card is full it stops recording. Again to me - looping means that it should go back and overwrite each previously recorded segment in turn instead of turning off - that is what a loop is. Maybe the function is mis-named? Or I need to change a setting to make it continually record. Any help is appreciated.

Hmmmm.... the default settings in the Hero 3+ only allow you to set the default at power up to the following: Video, Photo, Burst or Time-Lapse. There is nothing in that setting which allows you to set Looping on Power Up.

I went into "SetUp" and selected "Default on Power Up". This "Default on Power Up" setting only allows you to select the following: Video, Photo, Burst or Time-Lapse. There is nothing I see in the setting menus that allow you to select a looping setting as a default on power up.

I found the root cause of my issue. My AC power supply was below the the rated threshold and did not continuously charge the batteries. Hence the camera turned off due to a lack of charge and not the settings. I verified the looping function with a different power source and I had no issue looping for multiple days.

In this case - I have no battery in the GoPro - it is powered through a USB PowerPoint. At one time I used a battery but the GoPro overheated so badly that it would shut down so stopped doing that.
Do you have the settings on Max? I don't want it to record like 10 min or 20 min and then overwrite - I know it can record about 4 hours and then I would like it to start overwriting.
