I can't update my camera because the USB is not recognised in my laptop and the SD card still errors

I'm absolutely screwed and dissapointed.

 

Jetting off in a few hours should be sleeping but I've been trying to fix the SD card error, and to do this I saw the recommendation was to update the camera.

 

After trying to manually update the camera.. Of course the update failed. This has frozen my entire GoPro so I can't use it anymore, it just flashes at me and tells me the updates failed, no matter how many times I try re-extracting the update file to my SD card that doesn't read, It just displays that the SD card has failed.

 

The other option is to use the software update, and amazingly the USB is corrupted and not recognised so I can't update the camera through there, so I'm clueless of how to restore my GoPro back to it's orginal format and I can't update it nor use it with an SD card error anyway.. 

 

This would only happen to me Smiley LOL Any help is highly appreciated as I've tried countless things and I've come to a point where I actually have no idea what to do, I'm screwed
