"Format SD Card" message while trying to do a motion lapse with a power cable

Every time I connect my gopro Hero Black 7 camera to a power source to do a motion lapse, I get a message that I need to format my sd card.  I don't get this message without the power cable.  I am using one of the recommended sd cards.  This issue is happening with both current and previous firmware.  Any thoughts?

Hi @hardytree1761

 

Are you using the camera on its own or is it connected to a gimbal?

What SD card are you using?

 

Try shooting without the battery, see if this makes a difference.

 

 

Thanks!
