Laptop not detecting GoPro Hero 8

[ New ]

I am trying to import files from my GoPro Hero 8, but my laptop is not detecting it. I have tried the Device Manager fix of updating drivers but it still won't solve the issue.

 

I need help with this. Thanks!

I have the exact same problem with my laptop.  My desktop sees and connects to it, but my laptop does not.  Brand new MSI GL659SC, everything up to date...

I solved the problem, returned the brand new hero 8 black for a refund and moved on to something other than GoPro. Got tired of the constant issues, connectivity, battery life, horrible audio (hero 5 session...I have 2, both have same audio problems), and the lack of intelligent support (same ineffective steps no matter who helped) has killed my desire to buy any future GoPro products.
