[ New ]

i recently bought a hero 8 black bundle from costco. i wanted to upgrade to larger sd card so i bought a pny extreme pro. specs matched up to what came with the camera, U-3, V-30, class1. i formatted it on my PC and then inserted to the gopro. it prompts me to do a format so i click format an this thing spins for hours and gets really hot never finishing the format cycle. please help!

if its not working  gopro will askyou try another card, format the cad  manual flash firmware, all that done and camera simply fails its time to return, use the warranty etc.
