Can’t transfer files with media mod on?

Hi I just got the media mod for my GoPro hero 8 and love it!
however, when plugging it into my MacBook Pro via the c connector - it doesn't recognise the camera, for file transfer, it only charges, on removal of the media mod, it does! Is this normal? The rest all works like a dream! Am I doing so,etching wrong?
thanks

Hey thank you again! It’s working after plugging the usb c cable that came with the camera! Strange the c cable I was using worked otherwise before the mod! Anyhow just glad it’s all sorted with the original cable 🙏

@ak1kanobi, sorry to hear about the trouble. Please be sure to have the latest firmware installed in the HERO8 Black camera and use the USB-C cable that came with the package when connecting the Media Mod to the computer. 

If the issue persists, our Support team will be able to assist you with the next steps. You may reach out to them through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs to initiate a callback request or chat with one of the representatives.

Thanks so much for your reply - yes I’m running the latest firmware and it shows that the media mod is connected.
All the other functions work fine except the file transfer - which is ok on removal of the media mod.
