Re: GoPro hero 8 not being detected by Windows 10

Was having the same issues and it was driving me crazy but then I found the setting for USB Connection and switched it to MTP and now it is working again.  Thanks.

He is correct. Change to MTP connection. Thanks for sharing this quick tidbit!

This is because there is a new setting on your GoPro camera.  Go into preferences and go to connection and click on "USB connection".  There are two options.  The default is "GoPro Connect", this is probably for use as a webcam with the beta windows software.  You need to change this to MTP (media transfer protocol) and you will be able to access your GoPro from your PC once again.
