Sorry to hear about the trouble, @royallift78426. If you recently updated the camera's firmware to v2.0, please go to the HERO8 Black camera's Preferences then select "Connection" and tap on "USB Connection". If it is currently set as "GoPro Connect", try changing this to "MTP" and you will be able to access your GoPro from your computer again. 

Additionally, run any available OS updates and make sure to have the latest update for your Graphics Card/s drivers installed. Use the GoPro USB-C cable that came with the camera. 

 

Let us know how it goes.

Awesome! +1 works for me also. I thought I was going mad - tried restarts, new cables everything.
