Hero 3 black freezes Can't Post

So I just got a hero 3 black. Sometimes when I power it on it freezes and won't do anything no matter what button I hit, the only thing that works Is pulling the battery out, wait a few seconds and try again.. Sometimes it works sometimes I have to do it again.. Is anybody else having this issue?

I have the same issue.
GoPro recomende to format the memory card, i did that. So far every time i tried it does not have this issue.
Seems strange thought that reformating the memory card solves a problem so many people have.

Always format, never delete the memory card.
Formatting cleans the card, deleting leaves behind fragments of files.
This is true for all camera formats, but GoPro seems to have greater sensitivity.

I had a GP3 Silver that froze up and nothing brought it back to life - returned it and no problems with the replacement. My GP3 Black froze once, but came back to life when I plugged it into the PC's USB port.

They do seem rather temperamental.
