1970-01-01

Hi,

 

My GoPro (H5b) / Quik used to import videos into date organised folders.  (correctly)

 

Now it is importing all video into one single folder  user/pictures/1970-01-01/Hero5 Black 2/. 

 

I.e. the date appears to be 1970-01-01.

Re: 1970-01-01

Hello @coolboost80127

 

GoPro media or files are organized based on the time you created them within the camera settings. If you have not done it yet, correct the camera's date and time information first, then capture sample photos or videos. See if this clears out the issue. Let us know how it works out. 

 

Thanks,
Marius

Re: 1970-01-01

Dear Marius,

 

I'm afraiid not.

 

 

I had already checked that.  I have also:

- factory reset the camera

- uninstalled and reinstalled quik.

 

Just now I tried altering the date on the camera to some random date to see if that would force it to change something.  Quik actually detected that the date on the camera was wrong and set it to the computer time.  Nevertheless it still imported into the directory 1970-01-01 (Unix base date BTW).

 

Regards

 

Gerard

Re: 1970-01-01

Glad to hear back from you, @coolboost80127.  Thank you for the update. If you have not done it yet, try manually updating your camera following the steps here. If the issue persists even after manually updating the camera firmware, the next path forward is to get in touch with our Support team for further assistance. You can connect with them via phone or chat through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs . Best regards!

Re: 1970-01-01

Dear Marius,

 

I'm trying to update manually but can't get past the camera registration page.

 

I have a Hero 5 Black.  I enter serial number CCAB16LP22xxxx  etc and hit enter

 

The page then has a faint red border.  But there is no other error message.  I just get lots of recapta verfications.

Hi @coolboost80127

 

HERO5 Black serial number should start with "C31".

You may check it on the battery compartment or through the camera's menu. Preferences > About this GoPro

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
Ej

Re: 1970-01-01

I have the same problem.  Today's date on my device is correct, and I have the latest desktop app.

I wish GoPro would fix this problem, or tell us exactly what they know about it.  I wish that the desktop app would detect any firware problems or updates etc.  I tried to leave this comment as a customer service feedback and I gopro's website crashed.

Re: 1970-01-01

@superpeak21784 - Typically, seeing the 1970-01-01 date is an indication that there is an issue with the camera's firmware. Doing a manual update should correct the issue. You can find the manual update instructions on the page for each camera at https://gopro.com/update/.
