GoPro Hero 4 Session not saving videos when battery died

Hi Guys

 

Today I had my camera set up to record progress of something we were doing.  The camera was on, full charge, but after quite a bit of recording the battery died.

 

I've come to my app/computer to see the files and nothing is available.  It seems the footage wasnt recorded.

 

What is the expected behavior when the battery dies?

 

I'd updated the camera this morning to the latest firmware and am using a Lexar 64gb card (class 10)

 

Thanks

Hi @coolstoke70227

 

When the battery runs out of charge, the camera stops the recording and saves the video.

Have you tried using an SD card adapter/reader to access the files?

 

Thanks!
