Hero 3 only records for 14 seconds every time

Every time I take a video it will only record for 14 seconds then shuts off. I have to keep hitting record for it to start again. Very frustrating

    Mine stops after 7 seconds. Tried different recording resolutions/framerates with the same results. I'm also using a Sandisk Ultra 32GB card (class 10).

Delete all files and reformat your SD card using the settings option on your GoPro Hero camera. I did and all is back to normal.

Hi , i have a problem with my gopro hero.. when i want to record a video , it records very fastly.. for example we record 1 minute , it records for 3 seconds.. i have the sdhc 8gb class 4 memory stick.....


this could be a problem on your pc, I have had this issue on a notebook but when i went onto my pc with more ram it worked ok. also it may depend on which codec is being used on your pc to view the mpg4 files, I have also noted that as well as fast speeds that the sound was out of sync.

When i am in video mode, my camera only records for 60 seconds then it stops and i have to hit record again. Is there a setting i need to change to fix this problem? its very frustrating


Is it EXACTLY 60 seconds EVERY time? If so, it sounds like a preference setting (probably default). Try going to the Menu section and look for a "Setup" routine and see if there is a "Max. Record Time" (or something similar) setting. Change as desired. Usually there is a choice for the maximum capacity of your recording media, SD card or whatever. If it starts out ending at 60 seconds and gets progressively shorter with each recording cycle, it may need recharging. Good luck. *Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, despite the handle.

For my first generation GoPro camera, do I need a memory card with a class rating higher than a 2 to have better quality videos. Also my camera seems to have a mind of its own and shuts down after about 30...


A Class 6 memory card is required for recording HD quality video. Not sure if yours is HD or not. Anything lower than Class 6 (such as Class 4 or Class 2) will result in recording issues and possibly skipping some video here & there.

As for the 30 seconds of filming limit...

1) It may be the memory card...that is if it's lower than Class 6. As a rule of thumb, when it doubt, buy Class 6 or better. Class 10 is the next step up, but it's a quite a bit more expensive.

2) Make sure you are using good, Lithium batteries...not Alkaline. Alkaline batteries will shut the camera down after a very short period.

Here are more tips on shortened recordings from GoPro's Website, followed by their Support Contact Info:

The batteries do not last very long.
  • It is not recommended that you use Alkaline batteries. Lithium batteries have the best results and longest battery life. Rechargeable NiMH are another option in mild weather.
  • Is it cold out? Battery life can definitely be affected by the cold! Please make sure you only use Energizer Lithium batteries in the cold, as any other battery type will perform poorly. In cold temps, you can expect about half of the normal run time when using the Energizer Lithium batteries.
  • Still having shortened records with a good set of the recommended batteries? Please email our support team through http://gopro.com/support for further assistance.

My gopro surf hero won't record.it turns on,everything works except it does not record nor takes photos


Be sure to have fully charged batteries and format your SD card using the FAT format. Start by taking the batteries and SD card out, then reinserting after at least 30 second. Here's an unofficial GoPro user guide and tip sheet that I hope helps. Please only apply the GoPro firmware update to GoPro Hero Wide cameras - not the Hero 3 or standard lens models.

If the take up reel is not working properly the slack in tape drive will cause poor recordings and shut downs.

Tape shows last 5seconds of previous clip before recording next clip


I'm not familiar with your particular model, but many cameras of this type have a "quick review" function that allows you to see what was recorded for the last few seconds to verify that all is well. This is critical in broadcast situations where you only get one shot to get the video. This is a quick way to verify that all is working without having a blank gap in the recording caused by an inaccurate rew/play/stop/rec sequence.

Check the manual for this "review" function.
