Hello @hardystar5661.

 

How do you do the recording? See if the Short Clips for 30 seconds is selected.

If it's not the case, try re-flashing the software. See https://gopro.com/en/us/update/hero8-black

Once done, reset the camera to factory settings.

 

Let us know how it goes.
You may also reach out to our Support Team through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs  for further assistance.
 

Thanks!
