SD Card Empty but "Full"

I'm currently using a GoPro Hero 5, the SD card was purchased together with the camera (32 GB). Recently, my camera goes into sleep mode after about 6-10 mins of video and reads "SD card full" when I check it after. However, I have no other files on my SD card and this problem didn't occur before (I could take up to 2 hours of video with no problem). Can anyone advice me on this? Thank you!

Re: SD Card Empty but "Full"

Hi @swiftpeak18241,

 

What SD Card are you using? Have you been able to format that SD Card before using the camera?

 

Best,

Ryan
