Solved: I want to just connect my new gopro session to my mac using USB, which should be quick and easy, plug and play etc. However, when I connect.
I don't want to use an sd adaptor nor do i want to buy one for a brand new macbook pro.and a brand new gopro 6.how backwards is this??? This is the most basic of gopro functions post taking a pic or a vid. I can't comprehend how i can't take the usd cord and connect to the macbook, device is recognized, yet not media? Media is found on go pro app on my phone. This has to be a software issue.and i'm pretty sure it is not apple. Go pro needs to make their stuff work with apple, not the other way around. This is why gopro stock is a fvking DOG.below $8 and apple is reaching new highs.absolutely pathetic.
To get new features and optimize your GoPro's performance, always keep it up to date with the latest camera software. All HERO3 cameras - v03.00. GoPro Studio, free and safe download. GoPro Studio latest version: GoPro's editing program to create time lapse. GoPro Studio is the video editing software for your GoPro cameras.
This method worked with every other gopro.spent an hour on this last night.super upset for something so beyond simple. Now we hear gopro in firing karma developers.this company is so poorly run, so sad.
I'm a surfer too.nick.give it up and hire the right people, you built a great thing, we love gopro, but it has to be simple and just work.it has never been either.yet you have succeeded in some way because we love the videos.do something to make the UI just work.i thought the 6 was a huge step in the right direction until this.and, i digress, i can't even rename it.WTF? That is the most insane software miss of 2017.how can you take away the ability to rename your wifi.backwards!!!
USB adapters are cheap. MacBook USB ports are known to fail, so don't be so sure it's not the computer. If it's a new MacBook Pro it could be the USB-C to USB adapter. Seems a lot of people are having issues connecting devices with it. A couple things you can try: Reset the Mac system management controller.
Hold down the Shift+Control+Option keys and the Power button at the same time from the Macbooks keyboard. Release all keys and the power button at the same time. Open up Image Capture, plug your camera into your computer and power the camera on. Once you see the USB symbol on your camera, take a look at Image Capture and you should see your camera under devices. If you don't see the camera listed under devices in Image Capture, but you are seeing the USB symbol on your camera, then there could be a physical issue with the camera itself and I would reach out to the support team. After wasting my time calling gopro support (over an hour) and downloading Quik for the desktop, nothing worked. Will have to go back in time, perhaps a decade or more, and try a SD card reader.this is 2018!
The latest and greatest offering from GoPro can't communicate properly via USB with Apple?? Come on.unreal.
Therefore, i will try on my iMac later today, it has a VINTAGE SD card reader on the back. If this works, i will buy an adaptor for using with my late 2017 macbook pro. U can't make this stuff up folks, this is why they fired 300 today and the stock in in the sh.ter for 3 years.absolutely pathetic!
