SD card readable only trough camera not via card reader

Hello,

 

I'm unable to read SD card trough SD card reader, on both of my computers and readers Windows can't recognise formating of SD card, only way to get data from it trough USB cable and connected HERO5 Session. When I format card manually to exFat so it can be readed on Win 10, Gopro wrote SD error and force me to format it trough camera. After that card is again readable only in camera.

 

Could anyone help me?

Re: SD card readable only trough camera not via card reader

Hello @epicsand58723. Which SD card are you using? It would be best to use one of the recommended SD cards on this list. Thanks!
