hi all, i still can't solve this same problem with my hero3 black. ive followed every steps from this site to update manually the firmwire from v3.0 to the latest. (lol, its my hero3 black's first update)
BTW, im using macbook pro to dl the update. not using card reader. i connected the sd card with my hero3 directly.
and it just wont update automatically when i restart the device....
thinking i may need to look for the older firmwire.

Try using an SD card reader and have your SD card inserted to your computer instead of it being in the camera. Make sure that the SD card is formatted, then save only the extracted update files (not UPDATE folder) to the SD card. Let us know how it goes.

The latest version for the HERO3 Black is HD3.03.03.00.
When the SD card was placed back to the camera did it prompt for the update? Did you see 1/2 and 2/2?
Was there any confirmation that the update was successful?

That was the fix!! Cheers Mate!
The missing part from GoPro Support is that the "UPDATE" folder needs creating on the SD card and with the content from download (new camera name and password) needs inserting to the new folder on SD card. It is the "UPDATE" folder on the SD card that prompts the GoPro to update... Briliant !!
