    I have a new gopro hero 3+. When I make a continuous recording in 1080 60fps of more than 10 minutes, the gopro hero 3+ breaks it up into two separate files. Is this normal? I can't find anything in the user manual about this.

    Sounds like a 4 GB problem. How is your card formatted? FAT16 or FAT32?

    I don't know. I'm not at home to look at it. Which one should it be? How do I check this? What's a "4 GB problem"?

    Happens on the regular GP3's as well (non +), I haven't seen any way to get around it. It may have to do with the 4GB addressing limit on 32bit formatting that DKDarkness mentioned, but I'm not sure.

    Ok thanks. Not really a problem since I can merge the clips together in post processing. Was just wondering if this was normal.
