MTP mode works for me. I Hope GoPro could someday confirm switch MTP on mac or PC device instead use them but don't tell us.

This worked for me

 

Ensure that you have the correct setting applied on your GoPro  in Preferences > Connections > USB Connection

  • Select MTP if you want to use file transfer
