Apple Mac Laptop will not see my Hero 4

Not used my GoPro in a good while but used it this week, when I went to download the videos my laptop can not see the camera ? When I plugged the camera in I got s message saying the app needed updating so I updated and now the laptop can’t see the camera, it all worked fine the last time time I used it before the updates. Any ideas ?!?? The camera works fine if I use the mobile App on my iPhone.
