SanDisk Extreme Pro 256 GB on Hero 7 Black

[ Edited ]

I have tried (assuming the risk) to buy a SanDisk Extreme Pro 256 GB.

 

Very nice speed with dedicated SanDisk reader, it exceeds 170 MB/s but I can't record more than 6,5 hours.

 

I have tried with 4:3 1440p 60 fps ProTune h.264, attached to external power supply and it shut down at about 6,5 hours.

 

If I try to power up again the camera, and push record button, it goes on for some minutes and shut down again.

 

No heat problem, as I put the camera outside and there are 5°C. Plus I had no problems at all with a SanDisk Extreme Pro 128 GB, that I could fill to maximum capacity (i.e. 4h26m at given parameters).

 

What a pity that  Desy R. from Sandisk support, replied me on Amazon that the 256 GB microSDXC would have successfully worked (sorry, it's in Italian as I asked on italian Amazon).

 

"D: Il modello da 256 gb è compatibile con una gopro hero 7 black? avete provato a riempirla al massimo? 
R: Gentile cliente Amazon,

Any idea? Latest firmware already installed.

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro 256 GB on Hero 7 Black

The only recommended card 256GB that works with a GoPro Hero 7 is listed as 

Samsung EVO Plus 256GB

MB-MC256GA/AM

 

You can find a full lost of recommended cards here.

I know but I tried. What a pity GoPro can't release a firmware to support those wonderful microSDCX cards.

 

P.S: The Amazon rebranded Evo Select is listed as working too. Problem is it costs twice the price for same hardware.

It would be nice if a moderator would list that card SDSQXCZ-256G-GN6MA as NON WORKING in the list.

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro 256 GB on Hero 7 Black

GoPro has a list of tested and compatible cards HERE

 

Unfortunately due to the amount of card manufacturers, amount of cards and various sizes it would be next to impossible to list every single other card that wasn't compatible with the GoPro as this list could stretch over several pages.  Instead GoPro have opted for a smaller and much shorter list of compatible cards instead.

I have to get back what I wrote.

 

The SD card works correctly IF you properly cool the camera. Over a air purifier at about 21°C, I filled the card with no crashes or hiccups.

 

I have tried with a Samsung Evo Plus 256 GB (that is in the list from GoPro) and it is even worse than the Extreme Pro one.

 

With the Extreme Pro without cooling I reached almost 2/3 of capacity, the Evo Plus did 3 hours and crashed.

 

I hope GoPro 8 will run lot cooler.
