GoPro Hero 6 connecting to Quik

I connected my GoPro Hero 6 to Quik (PC) and the program will become lag and freeze.


Now i have to transfer my files via card reader.

Same issue here, Ive also had it where Quik says there are no videos on the camera, but if I pop the card out and put it in a reader, it shows all of the videos and pictures that are on it.


Quik doesnt seem to be nearly as bad with the hero 4 silver or black that I have

Re: GoPro Hero 6 connecting to Quik

hi guys,


I have Win8.1

Quik 2.3.....


Quik does not see Hero 6 when connected directly, and I cannot download the files.

Yes, Quik see the SDXC card introduced in reader, and recognizes it as being Hero 6.


after I download or import the files:

- HEVC coded files cannot be played

- Gauge does not work on "readable" non HEVC files; Quik crashes when I try to set the gauges, any of them.


I understand that only Quik 2.5, which is available only for Win10, can "see" Hero 6.


till now no update for Win8.1


thank you!

Even with Quik 2.5, yes the program can see GoPro 6 but it will still freeze and lag ...

And I don't want to lose gopro studio.. I will stay with 2.3 for now
