Not possible to format both SD cards trought the Gopro app?

It only appears to format one of them, why arent there any option for both in the app?

Re: Not possible to format both SD cards trought the Gopro app?

Hi @cineviewmedia,

 

Formatting through the GoPro App will eventually delete all the files on both SD cards. To do this, once the camera is connected to the GoPro App, tap on the wrench icon for the settings menu, then scroll down to Delete and tap on "Delete All Files from SD Card."

 

Hopefully this helps!

Hello @cineviewmedia. The SD cards can be formatted both at the same time, or one at a time using the camera. You may refer to this article for for a guide on how to do it. Hope this helps.
