Looping

I set my camera to max looping since i got a 200 gb SD card but thismorning it only recorded in looping mode for 5 minutes then just stopped recording? No chattering or anything?

Re: Looping

Hello @foggywave22558

 

Did you start the recording in looping mode with an empty SD card? Were you able to format the SD card prior to recording in looping mode? How many files did you get in all after the set time for recording? When the looping mode is set to Max, the camera should be able to record until the card is full before overwriting content. 

 

It is also important to check if you are using a recommended SD card for the camera. The 200-GB card that you have maybe a good card but is not among the recommended cards that  we have on this list. If you can test the looping mode again considering the factors mentioned, it will be of great help. Let us know how it goes. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Re: Looping

I sold the 200gb card and got one that’s on the list (sandisk extreme plus 128gb) and so far i reformatted the new card and it looks like it’s still not recording past five minutes but I’m gonna try it again on the way home and see what it does

Hi @foggywave22558

 

Thank you for the information. What specific camera are you using?

Though the camera is set to Looping, we still need to consider file chaptering

 

  • Chapter size with Looping set to 5 min: 1 minute
  • Chapter size with Looping set to 20 min and above:  5 minutes

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks!

Re: Looping

I’m using the GoPro hero 5 black, the 200 gb card was working last night just fine and thismorning when i got to work it wouldn’t record anymore than 5 minutes, so i got rid of the 200gb card and got a 128 gb card (sandisk extreme plus 128gb) and it wouldn’t record more than 5 minutes either. So i went home and tried he card i got with the go pro that i have been using that i know has no issues and now it won’t record more than 5 minutes on that card either, tried it on 20 minute intervals and max interval and nothing more than 5 minutes. Did it do something to the camera? And yes i tried formatting both the new 128 and the original card after putting them in

Hi @foggywave22558

 

Changing the interval will still keep your files chaptered every 5 minutes when in Looping mode.

 

 

 

 

Thanks!

Re: Looping

I tried leaving it going for 20 minutes in loop mode on 1080 and 60fps on Different time setting and still all i had was 5 minutes and the red light was blinking like it was recording but there was nothing after that

Hi @foggywave22558

 

If you are to view the files on your computer you should see the rest of the chaptered clips.

 

 

 

Thanks!
