I'm done with SanDisk cards, again. If anyone knows my post from HERO2 to HERO5 I experienced nothing but issues with their cards and strongly urged people to choose Samsung Pro or Lexar 633X (1080p cameras) and Lexar 1000X (2.7K and 4K cameras). The message boards were full of people having issues with their cards, but still they were promoted. Turns out, a board member for SanDisk also sat on the board for GoPro.
When the HERO6 Black came out, SanDisk released the v30 version of the Extreme model cards. I tried it and it worked great. I bought a few more. Of the handful of SanDisk Extreme v30 cards I own, one of them consistently causes my HERO7 Black to freeze and have excessive battery drain. I haven't checked the heating with it, because I no longer use that one card.
Of my other brand cards, Samsung Pro, Samsung Pro Plus and Samsung Evo Select, I have not experienced any issues. I record 4-5 times per week ranging from a half hour to an hour of total footage each time. Sometimes more, but that about the average.
Some people want to cast aside experience and come to their own conclusions. I can tell you, from extensive experience with GoPro cameras beginning with the original HERO HD in 2010, manual updates do resolve some problems as well as using a different card. Sometimes two identical cards can give very different results.
However, again I'll say, if you have an issue not resolved by manually updating our s switching to a new card, contact the GoPro Support Team. Only they can assist you further.
Be very wary of people who only post negative comments about the cameras and GoPro in general. Unfortunately, as a publicly traded company, there are many people betting on the GoPro stock to fall even further In fact, there are over 31 million short positions on their stock right now. With fourth quarter financial results coming out soon, there is an increased effort to create consumer doubt in GoPro. People are heavily invested in GoPro NOT succeeding. If GoPro does well, they will lose lots of money. Don't be a sucker for their lies, no matter how crafty and seemingly helpful they might appear.
Millions of GoPro cameras have been sold over many years and overwhelming GoPro cameras are known for durability and dependability. This isn't some world wide conspiracy. It's a fact. Are there sometimes manufacturer issues? Sure, but GoPro is also known for its excellent customer service and they will assist you. In fact, Newsweek just named GoPro best in their category for Customer Service. Start up a chat or give them a call. They will be happy to help you out.

That video proves nothing. How was the camera powered? What cable was used? What camera specifically was it? Was it an OEM battery? Did the car have electrical issues? Was the camera recording? If yes, why? The car was unmanned and locked. Per the video description, the owner only noticed because the car alarm went off.
Pretty much any action camera gets referred to as a "GoPro", much like how people used to refer to all copiers as Xerox.
