Re: GoPro Hero 5 turns off while connected to capture app

Wondering if this ever became and issue for you again and if you found a fix. We have recently purchased a new Hero5 Black and we are having the same issue you described here. Everything works fine, but when we go to access the media same thing happens as you said. Any idea how you got yours to stop doing it? Anything you could suggest would help. Thanks!
