Re: No Files to Import

Same problem here! A iMac late 2012 with a Hero 5

 

The GoPro Studio shows "no files to import"

If I use the SD-card-reader I see the normal layout of a GoPro formated SD-card

All files are there

If I copy the files in the folder on the iMac, they are all there but GoPro Studio shows only a few

 

I tryed dirffernt variations but the problems are still there!

 

I guess, GoPro Studio is kind of buggy and need a few imporovments!!!!!

Re: No Files to Import

I don't know if it's relevant to you but I had this with my Hero5Session on Windows 10

 

All I did was uninstall then reinstall the Quick desktop app (with studio Included)

and it worked . The only noticable difference I saw that now "Quick" had its own different designed icon

Just thought I'd let you know anyway

Re: No Files to Import

I found the solution to my problem. I was led to wrongly install the outdated GoPro app instead of the new Quik app. Once this was pointed out to me and I reinstalled with Quik app, my problem went away and I can now unload the files from my Hero5 Black using USB without any problems.
