Re: Folder naming

Hi, i still have issue with the folder 1970-1-1. Even after updating the firmware manually it keeps the folder. I use the new 7 black with a 2016 MacBook pro. Please help for a solution.

Hello @stizziii. Perform a camera resat and format the SD card on your camera. Make sure to save first any GoPro media that you have as formatting the card will delete its contents. There are steps here https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/formatting-an-sd-card-with-hero7 to guide you. Let us know how it goes for you.

Re: Folder naming

Reported earlier that Quik folder naming had resolved itself.....just updated Hero 7 to latest firmware 1.70 and bug is back....it still does not delete any files automatically after downloading and creates a single folder named 1970-01-01 in destination. Bah humbug!

Re: Folder naming

Have you double checked the date/time on the camera?

Re: Folder naming

Yes and it's current and up to date...thing is, it doesn't matter when the pics are taken, the same folder name (1970-01-01) is generated and everything gets dumped inside.....still not resolved

Re: Folder naming

OK, so again it's happened, for no reason...no updates, no reset, no restart, time and date is correct...Quik loaded the files correctly into correctly dated folders....GREAT ......but still doesn't delete files from camera so halfway there again.....
