how long should a memory card take to format?

[ New ]

I got the Gopro Hero 8 and have put in the recommended SD card 64GB, it has been formatting for over an hour and a half now, is this normal or any suggestions?

It should format very quickly.

I waited 2 and a half hours and still nothing. Formatted it on the laptop and it took a few seconds but when I out it back into the gopro it asked to format it again, so im redoing it. Seems very strange.
