GOPRO usb-c cable

Why doesn't my GOPRO hero 7 black connect to my computer (windows 10) with a different USB-C cable that the gopro one?

Re: GOPRO usb-c cable

Hello @greensurf13741. It is because not all USB-C cables are of the same type. Some are able to only allow charging, others allow charging and data transmission as well. It is always recommended that the standard (the one that came with the package) cable for connecting with other devices.
