You need a card from this list. https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations

32GB & 64GB tend to work best.
I've had very good performance with the SanDisk Extreme v30 (v30 is important and needs to be printed on the card) 64GB.

Make sure you are getting your cards from a reputable source. The error coming up after a period of proper functioning is sometimes the result of a counterfeited SD card. You should look up online how to identify if your card is "fake" or counterfeited. Just to be sure.

Could be an issue with the SD slot. What cards are you using? Did you ever accidently slide a card in the space between the SD slot and battery? Are you on the latest firmware?
