session upload to mac via usb

I'm unable to connect my GOPRO Session to my brand new MacBook Air. I have tried using the GOPRO usb cable as well as three other ones. Each time I turn on my gopro using the small back button and immediately inserting it in, the LSD displays it charging for a second then loses the connection. It will continue to charge however will shut off automatically.

@hikebelife - To import directly from the camera, you'll need to use the Quik for Desktop program at


Also, the camera will need to be turned on for importing to begin. If the camera is off, it will go into a charging mode.
