Camera won't uodate

I have tried to update my GoPro hero 3 with all 3 available updates. All of them fail. I have seen someone on the internet hard reset their GoPro but I have read people's comments that it bricked theirs, Wich is something I'm trying to avoid. Is hard resetting my only option or is there something else I could do to be able to update it and finally connect to my phone. Kind regards.

Re: Camera won't uodate

Hi @thomasemmer


What SD card are you using?

What happens after inserting the card back to the camera after saving the update files?


Kindly try the update steps again.

Make sure that the update files are copied to the root of the SD card.

Do not copy the UPDATE folder.


Let us know how it goes.
