Re: Chromebook isn't connecting to Hero6 or 7

 

Hi @cshrader,

 

Try to check other USB ports. 

If that won't work check if your camera will work on other computer. 

 

If that won't really work then there should be something wrong with the port or it's a compatibility issue.

GoPro made a billion in revenue in 2018, but you can't get a GoPro to work with a chromebook? .... Y?

Hi everyone,

 

Chromebook isn't supported and can't be used to connect the camera.

I'm not a happy camper. No chance they are going to work on making it work?

Uh Yeah Jay,

 

We know it doesn't work. Thats why we're here complaining. It takes like five seconds to figure that out.
