Can't loop video

Hi all, 

My Hero4 isnt looping videos correctly. 

a) it shows saved media of time much later on than starting

b) Its only recording 1 min videos, even when I've set it to 5mins. 

 

What needs to be corrected here ?.

 

Thanks.

Not sure I'm understanding what is happening here. Can you give an example of what's happening in (a). For (b), is it recording 1 minute videos and then overwriting that 1 minute even when the loop you have is set for 5 minute loops?

 

Regardless, the best first step is to make sure the camera's firmware is fully up to date by doing a manual update on the firmware. Instructions for doing that are at https://gopro.com/update/hero4.
