Original post was last year for this:
Okay, this works on a Mac;
set GoPro to video (otherwise the Mac will see it as "stillphoto" and do nothing for you.)
Click on the round Mac app called "Photo" and then plug in the USB cable goPro/Mac.
Then the Photo app will see all of your photos and videos. Create a new folder (or project- whatever) and import.
Whew! Does this have to be so stupid? Can't it just see the files and let you drag them across to the computer?
PS: it's not very fast. GET a fast USB cable, might as well use USB 3.0 or 3.1 but at least 2.0 Buy on Ebay cheap. USB3.0 have blue insert in connector and go to nine wires from USB 2 with four. Do what ever you can to boost transmission speeds becasue it ain't speedy-

This conversation started over three (3) years ago. They are not going to fix it. They must not figure it is anything worth bothering with. Just not worth it. Perhaps we should look at them the same way?
This is sooooo frustrating. Running OSX 14.3 and have the same problem as the others. How long does it take to fix something so simple???

For what it's worth, shocker!, I have the same issue with my Hero Session 4 and MacBook Pro. I tried not using the GoPro POS USB cable and instead used my wife's Android phone cable and PRESTO, it worked! Not saying that it will work the next time but at least it did this go around. Sadly, I think I will invest in an SD card reader so I don't have to deal with the BS. Anyone want to start a rival company that actually makes it easy to download and make videos?
PS. It appears to be a USB cable issue for me as my Mac Image Capture program is now recognizing the GoPro camera as well. It wasn't before when I was using the GoPro cable.
