Why I can only record 6 seconds and then the movie stops?

I can start to record the movie but only lasts for 6 seconds and then automatically stops?

I can take a picture but takes many seconds to save it.

The SD card works fine (tested with laptop)

Hi @leleb69,

 

You will want to use a recommended SD Card from this list:

Hi Ryan

 

microSD XC I cat 10.

The card is not new. I used it before without problems.

Even more. I used in the morning for a skiing session and it was ok but when a tried to use it later during the same day I had this problem.

That was yesterday.

Today nothing worked.

 

Thanks

Lele
