Import Failure

[ New ]



I've had an issue using the Quik desktop application to import my videos. I'd greatly appreciate any help that could be offered. Some background information, as follows..


  • I have an Apple MacBook Air 2017 running macOS High Sierra v10.13.6.
  • The SD card I use in all my GoPros is SanDisk Extreme 64GB cards.
  • Finally, the GoPros I use is the Hero 5, Hero+ and Session 4.


The issue I have is when connecting the GoPros or inserting the SD card into my computer and selecting import files on the Quik app I get the following error message.

The file I save GoPro files to is users/tomblindell/documents/gopro. The Macintosh HD drive in my computer has used 54.08 of the 121.12 available GB. As 64 goes into the remaining storage on my drive I can not understand why I receive this message, to try and fix this my documents folder uploads to iCloud which I pay for several hundred GB's of storage, the same error message still occurs. 


It also seems I can not drag and drop the files as they need converting (I assume the files compress to take up less space?) and similarly I am not permitted to delete them from the SD.


I would appreciate if somebody could advise me on this issue as I have almost now filled 3 of these 64GB drives and have nowhere to import, convert, save and view these files. 


Many thanks!
