SOURCE: Problem with gopro hd

It means that your computer has limited resources to play up to R3 only. R4 HD is heavier to process that is why your computer freezes.

R4 and R5 needs higher processor speed, ram and the video card. Check and make sure that the 3 of them are compatible with each other and has outstanding bench mark.

For computer maximum performance use processor that has GPU.

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 for further assistance.

How do I delete all the video from my SG card in my GoPro Hero3 camera?

Hello there,
As the manual says.

Presuming you connected PC to camera with USB cable.

All the content on the camera is seen as a disk drive by the Computer.
When you downloaded the photos, From the Computer you must have clicked on them. All you do is right click and delete on the ones you want to erase just like you would with any other file.

The SD card is just another STORAGE device and can be written to or read by both computer and camera. Nothing clever.

SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

How to reset gopro hero3?

We've found the best way is to remove the SD card and the batteries for at least 30 seconds and then reinstall both and turn the camera on. Remember, that in addition to the data saved on the SD card, by plugging your camera into your PC with the USB cable you will be able to find any images or video stored on the camera's built in memory.

We've put together a tip sheet for the GoPro Hero 5 cameras but much of the information will help you get the most out of your Hero 3. It is important that you do not attempt to update a Hero 3 using the available GoPro firmware update as it is ONLY for wide angle Hero 5 cameras.

If we can answer any other GoPro support questions feel free to visit us at or contact GoPro directly.
