GoPro Hero 3 “Frying” Large Memory Cards

We knew GoPro was a hot product—but now it seems the new HERO 3 is “frying” large capacity memory cards.

Users who invested a lot of money into the 64 GB SD card for their HERO 3 – the largest the camera will take – are reporting that after only a few days of use the memory cards end up useless, totally corrupted.

So just to be safe, we suggest you stick to the 32 GB variety until a firmware update comes out that fixes the problem.
