Re: I have followed the online camera update steps, camera does not intiate update

Did you move the UPDATE folder or the files inside the the folder to your SD card?

You should start with a blank SD card.

Extract the UPDATE folder to your computer.

Using an USB/SD adapter, insert your microSD into your computer

Open the UPDATE folder and copy the files inside it

Paste the files (not the folder) onto the SD card.


*Note: This is for the HERO3 and NOT the HERO3+. With the HERO3+ you must move the UPDATE folder to the SD. On the HERO3, you move the files within the folder.
