GoPro Hero 9 Black -- not being "seen" by Mac

Just received my camera -- I can transfer media fine through the app to my phone, and even if I remove the SD card plug it into a reader plugged into the computer, but when I plug it in directly to a Mac the media can't be seen.

 

I have tried:

-Resetting both the SMC and NVRAM on the initial Mac

-Using multiple cables and inputs into the Mac

-Trying it across different Macs

-Using GoPro Quik, GoPro Player and Image Capture

 

None of those have resulted in anything.

 

Thoughts?

Re: GoPro Hero 9 Black -- not being "seen" by Mac

Its a setting in the camera that needs to be changed.

 

Goto settings

 

GOto connections

 

GOto USB

 

then change type of connection to MTP

 

it works a treat after that.

Same issue here. I am unable to see it by directly plugging it into my 2019 macbook pro or imac. And just to be fair, my ipad doesnt see t either which is USBC.

Wow. That actually worked; thank you so much!

Might be nice if they mentioned that in their manual...
