Re: I have multiple GoPro Hero7 black how do i rename files in camera

It makes sense, but it cannot be done in the camera. You'll want to move the files over and then select all and give the files a new name. You should first sort by creation date time. If you select all and then give one name (example: CameraA), each file will be given that name followed by a number (CameraA, CameraA(1), CameraA(2),...). Once done, you can then move to the next camera import.

Alternatively, if you use Quik Desktop to import, then it will make a new folder for each camera. The actual file names will not be changed, but the folder they reside in will have a number HERO7 Black (1), HERO7 Black (2),...
