Best way for now is to take out the SD card and use that.....GoPro are working on updates to firmware and software (hopefully!!!!)....

Hi @archell,

 

Just copy and paste your files from your camera to your computer. 

Go to file explorer if your camera is connected to your computer. 

 

 

You may also use SD card adapter to do that. 

 

Regards,

Re: how do i transfer my gopro max videos to computer using the USB Cable?

This was happening to me too....WAS I say because before today, Quik did not recognise files via the USB cable so I was taking the SD card out and mounting the drive to copy files over (BTW Quik still starts this way as well but still did not see the files)

 

Today (with not updating of either the MAX or Quik)....I plugged the card in, Quik started...all normal....BUT then it transferred the files!!!! (albeit into an incorrectly dated folder in the target drive...this has happened randomly with the GoPro 7 as well)..but the video files were transferred! 

I deleted the new folder, put the card back into the Max and connected via USB and the same thing happened! Incorrect date for folder but the files were there!! MIRACLE!

 

I did notice that Quik did not transfer the .LRV files into the folder BUT they were in the RECENT ITEMS of the app, so that's weird!

 

I repeated the process and Quik worked "properly" again.....HUH?

EDIT: I have checked my SD card this time....Quik only transferred the HERO mode and Time lapse files so basically only the native MP3 files...it did not transfer the new .360 format files!

Hi @capediver

 

Quik for desktop does not recognize 360 files.

 

Please check the links below:

How Do I View My Exported Spherical Video? 

Windows - GoPro MAX Exporter

Mac - GoPro Player

 

Thanks!
