Trying to clear SD card, GoPro keeps locking up

Hero 7 Black has been locking up regularly and overheating. Tried deleting all the media and restoring the camera. Now there’s only one photo left on the SD card and every time I try to delete it or format the SD card, the camera locks up again.

Re: Trying to clear SD card, GoPro keeps locking up

Hi @davew20737

 

What SD card are you using?

Do you have access to a computer?

It will be best to do a full format on the SD card first using a computer.

 

 

Thanks!
