Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

There is an update for the Hero5 Session. You have to select your camera from the drop down box. The default is Hero5 Black but updates for all GoPro cameras can be found on the same page if you take the time to follow directions. https://gopro.com/update/hero5_session

Cameras cannot corrupt a SD card. You might get corrupt files but only physical damage will cause the camera to be unusable. Format the card and it should be fine.

Be sure to use a card from GoPro's list of recommended cards.

If you are having issues and the camera had never worked, you should (have) exchanged it, either from the store you purchased it or through GoPro if you bought it from them. https://gopro.com/help/PKBContactus

Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

Mate,
At first the camera is not connecting to capture software,
I tried to to use quik - no hope,
I tried to download it from your site, to be honest I couldn't figure it out.

I bought the SanDisk extreme for the go pro, now the cards are not working, it says SD error,

Battery stays less than an hour

Can you please send me a direct link to firmware update,
