Additionally, you will want to make sure to follow all of the instructions as outlined on the GoPro website's update page to ensure no steps are being missed. I do also have some suggestions here that should help get the update working.
Make sure the UPDATE folder is unzipped/extracted, before placing it on the SD card. If the folder is compressed, the camera will not be able to read it;
Ensure the UPDATE folder does not have any additional characters in the folder title, i.e. "UPDATE (1)". The camera will only recognize a folder titled "UPDATE", in upper case letters with no additional characters;
Format the SD card before placing the update folder in the root of the card (format on your computer, or DELETE ALL files in the camera's Delete menu);
Be sure to place the entire UPDATE folder on the root level of the SD card.
