Sd card for Gopro hero 6 Black.

I just bought this go pro. I installed a sd card of 256gb samsung and it says "sd error" I read that 256gb was supported in this new version of the go pro. I format the sd card in my computer and the laptop read it but the camera still give me the same error.

Re: Sd card for Gopro hero 6 Black.

 

Hi @djcat1993

 

 

If a camera is freezing up, it is usually an indicator the camera's software needs to be updated or there is potentially an issue with the microSD being used. Try removing the SD card and see if the camera still freezes up while navigating the menu. If it no longer freezes, then the issue is likely stemming from the SD card. If you have a spare SD card, you may test it with your camera and see if the issue persists.

 

You may also try a manual software update. Instructions will be listed once you get past the serial number and email address page.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Ej

Hello @djcat1993

 

Further down the chart, the HERO6 Black camera is tested to work with higher capacity SD cards as well so long as it's SanDisk Extreme/Extreme Plus/Extreme Pro UHS Video Speed Class 30 (V30). 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Format the card on your GoPro Hero 6 and try again.  The instructions to format the SD Cards are in the instructions.

I tried that but the go pro stays frozen. I have to remove the battery to be able to use it.
