Mi GoPro Hero 3 no se actualiza

Hola, tengo una GoPro Hero 3 color plata. Quiero actualizar el fimware y el wifi, pues ya no recuerdo la contraseña que utilicé en su momento. He seguido todos los pasos que indica la página e incluso los vídeos y cuando introduzco la tarjeta con la carpeta uptape descargada y descomprimida, la cámara no se actualiza. La enciendo y lo único que hace es seguir como estaba.

Ya no sé que puedo hacer, pues ya he probado con dos tarjetas diferentes. Las tarjetas que estoy utilizando son SanDisck ultra.

Muchísimas gracias por su ayuda.

Re: Mi GoPro Hero 3 no se actualiza

First, and this has nothing to do with updating, Stop using SanDisk Ultra cards. They are terrible cards and will eventually give you issues. Use a card from this list

Second, as far as updating is concerned, you do not put the UPDATE folder onto the SD card for the HERO3. You need to put the files inside the UPDATE folder onto a blank SD card.

The updating with a HERO3 is confusing because on the HERO3+ and all other newer GoPro cameras you put the UPDATE folder onto the blank SD card. This is not the same with the HERO3. Again, open the UPDATE folder on your computer and then copy and paste the files within the folder onto a blank SD card. There should only be the files on the card. There should not be any folders.

Hola Daniel, ya he conseguido conectar la GoPro al iphone. He apagado y encendido el iPhone y ya se ha solucionado. La aplicación ya funciona perfectamente.

Muchas gracias por tu ayuda.

Re: Mi GoPro Hero 3 no se actualiza

Hola Daniel,

Muchísimas gracias por tu ayuda. He conseguido actualizarla y que me reconozca el nuevo nombre para la wifi.

Ahora tengo que pelearme por que mi iphone se conecte. Se queda bloqueado intentando conectarse y no me pide ni la clave. ¿Tu no sabrás el motivo por el que no se conecta?

 

De nuevo, muchas gracias por tu ayuda.

Un abrazo

Re: Mi GoPro Hero 3 no se actualiza

Hola Charly,

La acualización de Hero 3 es un poco especial y lo mejor es hacerlo manualmente. Mi consejo es que en lugar de actualizar de golpe el firmware y el wifi, que lo hagas individualmente. Primero actualiza uno y después el otro. De este modo no debería darte problemas.

Me imagino que lo estas haciendo desde un mac o un pc, ya que desde la cámara es más complicado si no está actualizada. Recuerda que debes trabajar con dos tarjetas, una es la que quedará en la cámara y la otra es en donde tienes la actualización, que debe estar formateada y pegadas en ella las carpetas que se encuentran en la UPTAPE.

Mucha suerte!!!

Re: Mi GoPro Hero 3 no se actualiza

HOLA.... SI DE HECHO ESO EXACTAMENTE INTENTE HACER....

FORMATEE LAS 2 TARJETAS EN MI PC....

DESCARGUE Y DESCOMPRIMI EN CADA TARJETA LOS ARCHIVOS DE LA CARPETA DE UPDATE...

UNA TARJETA PARA WI-FI.... Y OTRA TARJETA PARA EL FIRMEWARE..... ESTAS TARJETAS LAS GUARDARIA CON LOS ARCHIVOS Y UNA TERCERA TARJETA PARA LA CAMARA....

QUE AL FORMATEARLA E INTRODUCIRLA A LA CAMARA CARGA DOS CARPETAS UNA MULTIMEDIA Y OTRA QUE NO RECUERDO
