AFTER RENAME MEDIA I CANT VIEW IT ANYMORE ON GOPRO

I just rename my media to a file name so that i can easily find it on my SD card. Sadly i can't view & find it anymore from my GoPro Hero 5 Black. What should i do pls....

Rename the file back to it's original name and see if that fixes it.

You shouldn't be using the SD card in the camera to save your media. Doing so will eventually result in glitches. For best practice, offload the media to a mobile device, computer and/or GoPro Plus cloud service at the end of the day. Before every days shoot, you should format the card in the camera.

If gopro allows PMP.  you should simply be amble to put back your video with the correct file extension and name then it will play. since it may not do. I tried  placing  one in and you know what happened?
