My Ultra 64gb card seems to have died.

I have a Gopro Hero3 black with a micro SDHC 64Gb class 10 card which was working without fault until today.

 

After I removed the card to remove the files I'd made but my PC will not "see it" and when I returned the card to my gopro it says SD error.

 

Any ideas welcome.

This is my exact situation as well. Gopro hero 3 black, 64gb ultra sandisk. Had been working fine, suddenly dies today. Shows as 30.6mb size when I try to format, and nothing will successfully format it.

Got the exact same problem. Got a hero 3 black with a 64 gig micro sd card. Worked fine, for a day, then it died and when i try to format it, my mac says it only has 31 mb available.

And i tried to format it in the gopro as well.. but no luck.

Re: My Ultra 64gb card seems to have died.

Have the same problem but with my Mac Book Pro and Windows Laptop.

 

I actually have a Samsung Ultrabook with a MicroSD-Slot, where i used the San Disk Mobile Ultra 64 GB micro SDXC as second drive (SSD only 64 GB).  As i had to send my Samsung Laptop for a service, i borrowed a Mac Book Pro from school, which has a SD slot. I used the SD adapter to try if it worked there and until yesterday it had been working great. Today neither the MBP nor my girlfriends Windows Laptop with SD Slot are recognizing the content.

 

Mac Book Pro says that the Medium couldn't be read. The Apple SDXC Reader Media recognizes only a 32.1MB card. Only Option: Formatting.

Windows Laptop says the card couldn't be read and only option is to format it. 

 

As the card has very new stuff on it, i would prefer not to format it :-P

Any suggests? Why are so many people having these days the same problems with this card?

The same happened to me. Was on ski holliday in austria. No memories. Spent over  600 euro and have nothing and ski holliday is over.

same problem here, gopro black, 64GB ultra.

I took it in to a data recovery place today and how's this, they already had a job with the exact same card (and camera)  !!!

they said there was very little chance of getting data off (and vastly expensive) as the controller chip is either corrupted or defective.

so much for sandisk reliability !

Same thing happened to me the other day after an epic day of powder riding. I am so bummed. SanDisk, I think its time to address this issue.

Re: My Ultra 64gb card seems to have died.

But does that one work??

 

I had Two 64Gb cards, and both have stuffed up after one use, same issue as all users above.

 

Come on Sandisk, what's going on?? Should we only be using 32 Gb cards max in our Hero 3's or is there some other issue?

 

Your silence on this topic is deafening....
