hero 3+ black wont update using SD card

Hey there i've decided to update my 3 gopro cameras and have had success wiith 2 of them which are both hero 3 black editions.

 

I am however having no success with my 3+ black model. I have gone through all the same steps as previous with my hero 3 black editions and even used the same SD card and formatted it in between updates. . Can someone please help. I have downloaded the 3+ update files so many tmes ive lost count. 

 

Ive tried with the wifi update and without. it is currently running version 01.04. It is recording fine but i thought it time to do the update.

Re: hero 3+ black wont update using SD card

HERO3 and HERO3+ do not update the same way.

For the HERO3 you move the files within the UPDATE folder to the SD card.

For the HERO3+ you move the entire UPDATE folder (plus files) to the SD card.
