If you are receiving an "SD Card Speed Low" error message on your AKASO V50X action camera and need to format the SD card repeatedly, it could be due to several reasons:
- Incompatible or faulty SD card: The SD card you are using might not be compatible with the camera or could be faulty. Make sure to use a branded microSD card from a reputable manufacturer such as SanDisk, Samsung, or Kingston, and ensure that the card meets the recommended speed class (U3 rating or UHS-I). If the card is damaged or corrupted, try using a new one. The U1 has a relatively low-speed card for the everyday storage of files. Examples include the SanDisk Ultra series, Samsung's Canvas Select Plus series U3 cards are more suitable for HD or UHD video recording, such as SanDisk's Extreme series, Kingston's Canvas Go Plus series, and Samsung's EVO Plus series.
2. Insufficient storage space: If the SD card has insufficient storage space, the camera may display an error message and prompt you to format the card. Make sure to free up some space on the card by deleting unnecessary files or transferring them to another device.
3. Dirty or damaged SD card slot: The SD card slot on the camera might be dirty, damaged, or worn out, preventing the card from making proper contact with the camera's internal components. Try cleaning the slot with a soft cloth or compressed air, and check if the card fits snugly in the slot without any wiggle or looseness.
4. Firmware issues: The camera's firmware may have bugs or errors that could cause issues with the SD card recognition and formatting. Check if there are any firmware updates available for your camera and follow the instructions to install them.
5. If none of these steps resolve the issue, you may want to contact AKASO customer support for further assistance or consider getting the camera checked by a professional technician.
