GoPro 7 Black connect to PS3 issue...

I normally connect (USB) my GoPro 3 to my PS3 to watch on my TV. Tried hooking up my GoPro 7 and it's not being recognized/showing up. I'm getting a pop-up on my TV screen saying it's has an unidentified USB connection, but it's nowhere to be found.

 

Anyone else dealt with this? If so, have you found a solution?

 

THANKS!

Re: GoPro 7 Black connect to PS3 issue...

@leonardew, were you directly connecting your HERO7 Black camera using USB-C to USB-A type cable? The camera will not be recognized as an external storage or camera device.

 

If you want to playback your videos from your HERO7 Black camera to your TV, you will have to use the GoPro Micro HDMI. For reference, please see https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/Best-Ways-to-Achieve-Video-Out-Signal-via-HDMI

Thank you. I did end up finding it on GoPro's website that the 7 is not recognized as a "storage device" as previous models and the mini HDMI or tranfering to an external hard drive would work.
