GoPro Hero 9 audio recording issue

[ New ]

I am having an issue with my gopro hero 9 recording audio, with a external mic connected via the 3.5mm gopro adapter I find that once it is setup the initial recording is fine however, thereafter is where the issue starts as there are large segments of footage that have no sound. 


I have found that when connecting the 3.5mm , Ext Mic and setup the gopro to acknwoledge a mic mode one needs to restart the gopro so audio can be recorded.


Is there something that I need or can do to ensure all footage has audio recording?
