Re: Gopro Hero 4 Session doesn't work with sd card anymore

[ Edited ]

yes i formatted the card beforehand then put in the extracted folder and then i put the sd card in there and it still doesnt show me anything also the battery is almost full as far as i can see... also if i get the sd card out again and put it in my pc it has the DCIM folder back in it?!?!?

Re: Gopro Hero 4 Session doesn't work with sd card anymore

The DCIM folder (and other folders) will appear every time the SD card comes from the camera, @digitalwolffpv. Try formatting the SD card again, then copy the UPDATE folder one more time. If it will still not work, then the issue maybe hardware- rather than software-related. In this case, you will have to get in touch with our Support team so they can walk you through the next steps. You can call or chat with them here https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs . Thanks!
