Apple Lightning to sd card reader

I bought an sd card reader in Oz for my gopro and it worked fine until an iOS upgrade . After that it would only download photos , not movies .  I called Apple and basically got a rubber ear !

I saw a post on the internet about 3rd party devices being blocked by the upgrade , so went to Argos and bought a genuine Apple reader , and I wont work either ! . Spoke to a guy at Apple today and he said it’s a problem with the Gopro software . 

Anyone have any ideas ?

Cheers ,

Re: Apple Lightning to sd card reader

Hello @sunnyriver80351. Which device is the camera being connected to with the lightning cable/Apple reader? It should work on a computer but not a mobile device like the iPad. for mobile devices, the best option is to import files straight from the camera via GoPro App.
