Re: SD error after upgrading to FW 4 on Hero 4 Black

Keep the other GoPro 4.0 and downgrade the firmware, you are not stuck with the firmware 4.0 on the other GoPro

Re: SD error after upgrading to FW 4 on Hero 4 Black

I do not have any problems with my GoPro now and am looking forward to recording my daughter's softball games again after three weeks of pure frustration.

Re: SD error after upgrading to FW 4 on Hero 4 Black

I tried to find the FW 3 but it is not available anymore on the GoPro website.

 

Do you have a link to download it ?

 

Thx.

Re: SD error after upgrading to FW 4 on Hero 4 Black

The link that was just posted will take you directly to the 3.0 Firmware for the GoPro Hero 4 Black

Re: SD error after upgrading to FW 4 on Hero 4 Black

What link do you talk about ? I don't see any link in this post and like I said, I did not find your post "Firmware 4.0 Issues Fix" in the cameras forum...

Re: SD error after upgrading to FW 4 on Hero 4 Black

Hi,

 

Finally, I found and installed the FW3 to downgrade my GoPro, ran a test with a timelapse with a 0,5s interval (so the most stress test) and it worked very well until the SD card was full.

So, like I said, it's clearly a problem with the FW4.

I did not test to upgrade my others GoPro 4 black which are most recent but if only some of the black models have this problem, it's maybe only with the oldest Black (I bought it just after the release).
