GoPro 9 Media mod USB-C, works with PC, but not iPad

[ New ]

Hi

 

I've tested using a normal USB-C to USB-C, on my iPad it works when connecting directly to Hero 9 Black, if I set USB connection to MTP

But using the same cable on the Media mod with same GoPro Hero9 installed, it will not show up.

 

But on Win10, it works both way, with our without media mod, and exactly the same USB-C to USB-C.

 

What can be the casue for this  ?

 

Was expecting to be able to move videos faster to my Ipad, witjout having to take out the GoPro from the Media Mod.

Different power requirements when using a direct USB-C connection vs Media Mod USB-C connection.  Windows PC can handle it, your iPad cannot due to USB power limitations on a mobile device.
