SanDisk Extreme cards are fine - and recommended by GoPro. In fact GoPro supply a free card with the GoPro Subscription bundle - a 32GB SanDisk Extreme (non-Pro)!
Unless you have a clone/fake card, the card performance should be fine......

Thanks for all the responses + support.

Overnight, I continued to try to troubleshoot the unit by factory resetting the camera, formatting the SDcard in my computer and in the GoPro, and even swapping batteries (which should not be a factor in the least, but I have seen strange things before...). This morning, I went to take it off the charger and the charge light didn't go off after I unplugged it. The buttons were unresponsive until I pulled the battery out and put it back in. At this point, I was close to deducing the camera was the primary factor.

Thankfully, I produce both an automotive media platform and cannabis educational media, and I am moving to GoPros to upgrade the cameras.I actually bought a second Hero 10 just 2 days after the first one and now I looked to test the cards to see what is going on.

I ran into so many immediate issues with Camera #1 that I didn't even get to unboxing Camera #2. I haven't used GoPros a ton, so I did have to consider that my lack of experience was a factor. I ended up charging up the second camera this morning, put the SanDisk Extreme Plus into it (without formatting), and gave it the 1.10 update. Once it was all ready, I slapped record and it went without issue to over ten minutes solid video no problems. I stopped it, inspected the physical unit as well as surfing through the settings to see if anything was different between the two - and everything was the same.

The only difference was that Camera #1 sucks bad. I went to Best Buy and Exchanged it as defective for a fresh unit (camera #3) which is currently charging and looking like a winner. After having recorded just a smidge with Camera #2 and the NEW Camera #3, I can say that I am relieved after a half a week of digital madness. I am going to record over the next few days, and I'll be sure to report if I run into anything worth noting.

BTW, I think I'm addicted to Snap Mounts. Honestly, it has been making the process of camera-swapping incredibly simple and satisfying.

When i connect hero 10 to usb wall plug to do a nightlapse photo, the screen turns off but the timelapse seems to continue. Annoying but surely a bug, caught a glimpse that says battery below 0 deg which is impossible with no battery inside. Seems to be an issue across photo/ video/ timelapse shooting modes.

With battery, screen stays on without issues. Pls fix! ty

your bat is removed, screen will conserve power, and of course its saying no battery in, which really says 0 degree, and something a lil more than that.

Clearly it's a bug because this doesn't happen with hero 9 with similar settings of screen saver turned off etc. I think u should stop giving bad and inaccurate advice if u aren't sure.
