Re: Quik does not recognize GoPro Hero (2018)

I'm on Win 10. MSI GL63 8RD  

Core i5 8GB 128GB SSD 15.6" 60Hz GTX 1050 Ti

I have also problems getting the computer to recognize my Hero7 Black. If I use the provided usb cable it's working fine, but if I use another usb cable Quik will not find the camera and I don't find it in explorer. I tried to follow your instructions using the Device Manager but it makes no difference. When I connect my camera to my old computer it works just fine with any cable.

Another problem I have is that I made a night lapse and it will not play in Quik. 

I have a few recordings in 4K 60p and it's no problem opening them in VLC or other media players on my computer, but they will not open in Quik. I really hope you can help me.

Hi @oehagen


It's best to use the cable that came with the camera.

At this time, HEVC is not yet fully compatible with Quik for desktop.
