Can't update the firmware of my gopro hero 5 black. Stuck at 66%, not moved from there. Help please!

It's been at 66% for hours. See attached

 

Do I need to call you?

HI

 

I solved this problem, by installing the update Manually; which involves removing the SD card from the GoPro, downloading the GoPro update software to my computer, transfering it to the SD card, and putting the card back into the GoPro.

 

The software update took probably ....2 or 4 minutes... (I did not time it exactly). After that finished successfully, another problem

 

Quik would not import files from the card. So I took the card out of the GoPro again, plugged it back into my computer (a MacBook Pro), and through FInder, copied and deleted all photos on the SD Card. Put the SD card back into the GoPro, took a few test photos, and now the transfer seems to work fine.

hi,

glad you figured it out!

 

 

just an advice.

never delete the files after you copy them.

instead, format the microSD card. is better and safer for the microSD file system. prevents the fragmentation that leads to higher access time.

 

just me,

robert
