Syntax error in sdcard

Syntax error in sdcard

Postby stickair » Thu Jun 26, 2014 10:07 am

Hi there.

Since yesterday I'm having troubles with my Gopro when I try to record video:
I press on the shutter to start recording and it beeps as it'd exist an error.
Sometimes it appears an "SoS" message in the screen and it doesn't let me do anything.

Today I've recorded some videos and it appeared in the screen "000", "001", "002", "003" and "001" again as I wouldn't recorded anything yet.
Once I've retrieved from my laptop the files inside the sdcard, it appeared a chaos of unreadable folders and files with weird names.

Hope you can help me.
Thanks !

Try formating the SDcard in your computer, do not choose Quick Format, and then format the card again in your GoPro.

How old is the card? Is it from a reliable manufacturer?

It it 10 rated?

I've tried formatting the sdcard from the gopro but I didn't from the computer and not choosing quick format.
I can't try it out right now because my laptop's broken.

The card is a Lexar SDHC 100x 16GB. It has worked always with this gopro and this' the first time I got this problem.

I'll tell you something ...
