So i'm thinking it's probably the cheap SDmini card i bought through ebay, BUT - it was a class 10 - 32GB card so i figured it'd be fine. After I've formatted it, I left the Go Pro on and did a time lapse over night. When i got in the following day it only recorded half of the time lapse and corrupted the rest of the files. That was the first issue. So I cleared the pics, and re-formatted again. Then i took a few videos and when i went to check them - one of them didn't even show up. It said i was recording but apparently nothing recorded....and the first video i recorded, about 10 seconds through it stops...then the computer freaks out and says the data can't be read and gives me an error and kicks my go pro off the computer. At that point i can't turn off the Go Pro or do anything with it unless I remove the battery and hit the power button. I'm guessing, or i read somewhere maybe the buffer or cache size on the SD card I got is just crap and or is filling up? Anyone have any ideas or suggestions on what it might be??

Thanks!

so I called them and we did a manual firmware update...what i didn't do the first time was re-format the card AFTER i did the firmware update. I just opened the card on my desktop and removed the old files. You shouldn't have to do that. After a reformat your card should be clean as a whistle.

Did a min. video test and it seems to be working fine again. I'll take another 25 min. on my commute home today to test it out but for anyone else with this problem that's how i fixed it, hope it helps.
