The 64G SD memory card I purchased from Harvey Norman about 12 months ago worked fine

But now my GoPro 6 keeps telling me that the SD memory card has failed why has it started doing this

SD cards can easily be damaged. Specifically,what SD card are you using (make/model). You can try doing a FULL (not quick) format of the card in your computer and then again in the camera. The Full format should find and correct any bad sectors; however, if the card itself (or the little gold connectors) is damaged, you will continue to have issues. Best bet is to just get a new card.

@coolcave33700, I agree with @danielr15. Try running a full format on your SD card using your computer, then in the camera. You may also refer to this list of recommended SD cards that are known to work well with GoPro cameras.

Feel free to post back if anything else comes up.

Hello @coolcave33700. Based on the Recommended SD Cards list, the highest capacity that a HERO6 Black camera can work with is Lexar 1000x microSDXC UHS-3 128GB.
