Sandisk Ultra micro sdhc UHS-I

Hi,

I just bought the above card for my Hero 5 Black that is about to arrive. I fear I have bought the wrong card. Will it work in my new GoPro?

Extreme pro or plus.  Ultras gopro sold by retailers, sellers  due rebates offered.

@tommac888

It's the wrong card.  It might work initially, but it will give you trouble down the road.  SanDisk Ultra, IMHO, are the worst SanDisk card for GoPro.  Exchange it and get a card off of this list https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/microSD-Card-Considerations

 

I personally use Samsung Pro/Pro+ and Lexar 1000x

Re: Sandisk Ultra micro sdhc UHS-I

I have some Sandisk ultra cards which are working fine. But I also need to mention that I exchange all my uSD cards used in the cameras quite frequent for avoiding dead blocks (memory flash cells that 'died' to to writing/erasing of the cards)

Re: Sandisk Ultra micro sdhc UHS-I

Yeah, you're handling them correctly. However, I've had two that failed me when I was out surfing. Hard to change cards when in the ocean. When they do start acting up, you can get some strange behavior with the camera. It's not always just SD Err. Random lock ups, camera not turning on, fast battery drain. It took me awhile to figure out it was the SD card, but after "fixing" each of these issues by just switching to a better SD card and then not having the issue pop up again until I used the Ultra, I'm convinced it's just not a good card for GoPro cameras.

30mbbs yes they do work but 40-50mbbs you need to get a better card.
