do I need an specific driver to connect my gopro to a laptop

When I connect the microusb cable to my laptop, it seems that it checks for compatibility and after that it gives an error, with the tag "device driver software was not succesfully installed"

 

Does anyone have a soluction for this problem?

Which version of Windows is on your laptop?

 

Which model GoPro do you have?
