GoPro Hero 6 external Mic not working

GoPro Hero Black 6

Version Number 02.01

 

I have a Rode VideoMicro Microphone that worked with my Hero 6 (used w/ the 3.5mm adapter) for about a month then all of a sudden it stopped working.  So I thought the mic was broken.  I purchased a new Rode VideoMic and it did NOT work (Audio settings was on Standard Mic and I DO NOT use Quick Capture).  So I purchased another mic (Saramonic SR-XM1) and it still does not work.  I only hear white noise in all of my tests.  I also have a powered mic, I plugged that in and (Changed my settings to Line-in) and that works.  Why has Standard Mic stopped working with the gopro Hero 6?

 

ANY HELP WOULD BE AWESOME!

Re: GoPro Hero 6 external Mic not working

When my audio adapter's not plugged in, There's no audio option under settings.  But when the adapters plugged in and I have the Saramonic or Rode plugged in it says "Standard Mic"
