Up to which part of the manual update process are you able to go? Does your camera serial number start with HD3SB? If yes, follow the steps below:
- Visit the HERO3 Update page
- Click on "Update your camera manually"
- Enter your camera's serial number, the email associated with your GoPro account, and check on the appropriate boxes.
- Click on next step.
- Follow on-screen instructions, except, when saving the extracted files on your SD card, make sure that only the update files are copied and not the UPDATE folder.
Let us know how it goes.

Now Micro SD card won't let me save files to it. Says write protection. I've tried the lock on side of adapter. Just one problem after another.
How do I fix that?

Yes, I have the proper SD Card and Class 10.
I can get up to copying the files over but I keep getting the 'Write Protection' error message and it won't let me do it.
I am using an adapater into the Laptop. I tried moving the unlock switch but doesn't work.
This is very frustrating. So close but yet so far!!

Which SD card is it that you are using? Have you formatted the SD card prior to using it? You can also try using a different card, if available. Thanks!

I don't have another card, I was told to buy this one. It's apparently formatted. No files on there and said it was successful.
Is it the card or adapter or laptop stopping this?

Looks like an SD card restriction.
If you have other card that would the best way to check if it's the SD card or PC.
But normally that issue is an SD card issue.
