Mateu: I bought a Microsd card class 10. It does not work says: please plug out card
Basil Gan: It's been 3 years now. They are aware of the problem and we can conclude gopro is being greedy and care less about customer experience.
GasserGlass: AGREED......Total Hunks of crap.......My White Hero 3 froze up INSTANTLY....I bought it today (Sept 8th 2013) and the freeze problems should have been fixed long before I bought it or have been told that they have a freeze problem...I was told by the salesman that it is a Great Camera...hehahaha...Wait till I put my hands on his neck tomorrow (40 miles away!).... BEST buys will have another refund tomorrow....and might pay my gas bill!?!?!?
panofish: go to my website at panofish ... there is a post on reverting your firmware that will fix the freezing in hero2.
Osprey 23: my go pro 2 is freezing
oscarthediver: i have a hero2 and just got a hero3 silver edition. lets just say I have NEVER had any issues with the hero2!, hero3 in my opinion SUCKS! I will be selling my hero3 on ebay and getting another hero2 instead! Sometimes simpler is BETTER!
15sixmedia: Spent over AU$500.00 on the Hero3 Black Edition and accessories, pissed off to learn that it is the largest piece of crap I could have ever purchased in my life.
soulreaper1017: Yeah I did the firmware 3 times . Twice I bought new chips. Now I just dud the hard reset so now I gotta buy a new chip again. I hope for the best
panofish: I've heard mixed reviews about the latest firmware. Some say it has fixed their freezing, so it may be worth trying if your camera is freezing that much. Mine is currently ok, so if it ain't broke, do try to fix it.
soulreaper1017: I have had my GoPro 3 silver for about 2 months now barely got a chance to record any video because it always freezes I have a Ultra 16 gig in a Ultra 64 gig they both let me take plenty of pictures but when it comes to videos it will only record what it wants and stops when it wants very frustrating please help me
panofish: I only have a 16gb card.

B Tankful: Bought a GoPro Hero 3 (White). Updated firmware. Set it to come up in Camera mode. Put in a new microSD 64GB (class 10). 1st battery worked fine.
Charged battery. on the second use, Hero3 shut off at random. Only 1st clipped worked. Battery lasted 27 min. Frustrated!
Today, put in 32Gb microSD. Suddenly, everything worked as it should! Saved in 1.99GB clips. Battery went 2.5 hrs. Saved last clip before shutdown. Does NOT work with 64GB memory!!
Does the black play nice with 64GB?
Mick McKenzie: Same problem as everyone else. I would not recommend GoPro to anyone unless they get this problem resolved. In the mean time I am looking for another camera. At the moment, Hero3 is a piece of crap.
vinnie gibbs: My go pro freezes at 10-12 seconds
Oscar Frosteyd: Mine is freesing.
panofish: Sorry, I haven't tried to open my hero3. I'd try replacing the battery first and checking the battery contacts.
Marcelo Resala: Hey! I bought a GoPro Hero 3 and it suddenly stopped working (it doesn't charge the battery) The guys at GoPro doesn't want to help me since I don't have the receipt, so I will try to fix it myself. Do you have a tutorial on how to open a camera? Thx
