GoPro Hero3+ Wi-Fi password stopped working, cannot mount camera or SD card as disk to reset

My GoPro3+ has been giving me issues since a firmware update around the beginning on 2017. It is currently on version 3.03

 

The camera used to mount as a disk on OS X but since the firmware update only mounts as a camera. When transferring files they all have the date and time of the transfer, not the actual recorded date and time like they used to.

 

Recently the Wi-fi password suddenly stopped working. After double checking I had the correct password a few times I searched for how to reset the password but the only information I can find involves copying an UPDATE.zip file to the SD card.

 

I am unable to mount the SD card either by plugging in the camera or by using the SD card reader in my mac with an adapter. The SD card reader works with other SD cards and the SD card adapter is tested as working.

 

I've tried resetting the GoPro to factory settings by holding down the shutter and power buttons but it doesn't reset the wifi.

 

This camera used to be so easy to use, now it's slowly turning itself into a fairly useless paperweight.
