Might need to cam reset done. Hold the shutter button down, insert battery, press the power button in that order.

thanks guys, I bought a new micro card and put it in the camera and it worked fine. Put the old stuck one back in and it appears to work too. Problem fixed. Go figure

I'mhaving freeze issues with my hero 3 black
I have a sandisc 64 class 10 car
d in it and I have read that some issues are due to bad cards.
How can I verify that my card is good?
I am getting close to bailing out on the go pro
It seems that for $500 with card and spare battery, that the thing ought to work!

I am in the same situation as you. My second 'scamdisk' 64gb ultra died over the weekend. There are tools to check sustained write speeds, but why bother. Would recommend a return/refund form place of purchase or filing an RMA with Sandisk here: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/de...-(rma)-process

Am going to try the Samsung 32GB micro sd cards that RideFreak has had success with mentioned a couple pages back.

??? for the Gopro Guru's

I am a beginner at this gopro gig ,

So I will prolly be asking some questions from time to time if yall don't mind .


So with that said,
Here is # 1 ,

I have gotten as far as getting footage off the cards and stored into my vidieos on my pc .

Is there a simple way without getting into editing to go to a certain point in a movie and grab a still photo so I can post here or other forums ?

How would I do that if possible ?


And , if I do have to start working with an editing software ,

I need some recommendations on which 1 to use ,

The 1 for Big Dummies if possible .


All I really want is some stills, and maybe taking some bits and pieces out of vids and condensing .


Thank You all for the help .

While playing the vid on your computer, pause it at the point you want the picture. Press shift + PrtScn buttons. Open paint or any image editing program, select file new. Once it's open select paste or ctrl + v. This will paste the pic into the editing program. Crop as needed.


And , if I do have to start working with an editing software ,

I need some recommendations on which 1 to use ,

The 1 for Big Dummies if possible .

I'd start with MS movie Maker, it's free and will get you started, once you get to where you discover it's limitations you'll know enough to figure out what you need and how much you want to spend if any on an editor.

I use VLC media player: (a freebee)
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

It has a "snapshot" function... pause video>>right-click>>video>>snapshot

Snapshots can be png or jpg files, set it in:
Preferences>>video>>>Video snapshot Format

I'd recommend going for the png format, the jpg compression is pretty poor....
(I grab png's then resize and save as jpg in a photo editing program)

:)

Take a look at this link, you'll be able to see what app they are using, no reason you couldn't do the same tests.

G'day All,

Reasonably new to the GoPro and just found this thread, thanks

Question to ask, Is the GoPro Hero LCD Touch Bacpac the latest for the Hero3 Black edition?

Here is my first video uploaded to Youtube, it is unedited and at 12 mins a bit long. I was riding my XR460/4 on the Scrapheap Adventure Ride.



Here is a pic of the bike
