MacBook doesn't see my go pro

Hi there!

 

My MacBook Pro 2017 doesn't see my go pro when I connecte wirth USB. I've already tried resetting my USB settings (https://gopro.com/help/articles/Solutions_Troubleshooting/Camera-is-not-recognized-on-GoPro-App-for-...) but it didn't help at all. Also my gopro wouldn't update :( 

 

Anybody knows how to fix this? 

 

Except inserting an SD card directly into the mac, I don't have the adopter, so that's not an option for me. 

 

Thanks!

Re: MacBook doesn't see my go pro

Hi @hardycliff80456

 

If there is a pending update on your camera, you can have it completed via the GoPro app.

Otherwise, a manual update(requires an SD adapter) is recommended.

 

In most cases, doing a manual update clears our this type of issue.

I hope you can proceed with the update soon.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
