Re: how to add videos to my gopro

You wont be able to to put the files from the computer to camera and get them recognized by the app unless you have the folder with all of the original files, including .lrv and .thm. These files are not uploaded to the computer if you used Quik Desktop.

When connecting you phone to your computer via cable, is there an option on the phone to chose the connection type? You want it choose File Transfer.

Does your phone have external storage? If it does, another option is to just take the SD out of the phone and use a USB/SD adapter to copy the files over to the card.
