Samsung Micro SD compatibility

I have bought a Samsung EVO Plus Micro SD card. (both 128 and 256 Gb) and it will not format in the camera (GoPro 7 black) or work after full formatting in a laptop. Looking through your list of compatible cards, this card should work. Only thing is.....the Model number has one letter difference from my card to the one in your list. Mine is MB-MC256DA and the one in your list is MB-MC256GA.  Is this minor difference enough that the card will not work?  Is this a fundamentel difference that cannot be fixed, or will a later software update for the camera include this DA-card as well? Thank you in advance for answering.

Re: Samsung Micro SD compatibility

Hi @megaalp53,

Thanks for reaching out. Were you able to successfully full format your microSD card on your computer? I've run across similar situations before here in Community Hub where some users were able to figure out that their Samsung EVO Plus SD cards aren't genuine, thus causing the problem. The info in these threads might help:


Kind Regards,
Ann
