sd card permissions

Hi, I found a forum post about how to change the existing GoPro Hero3+ wifi UN and PW.  It says to move the unzipped folder (UPDATE) to the root of the microSD card.  I've tried this but it gave me permissions issues.  Says I don't have permission to write.  I've tried going into properties and changing the permissions but it didn't make any difference...  Anyone seen this?  Any thoughts?


Thanks, Dave.

Re: sd card permissions

Mate you're a freaking legend.  Why didn't I think of that, seems obvious when you think about it.  Thanks a lot.  Got it working.

Re: sd card permissions

Hi Dave,

 

make sure you copy the update files to the uSD on your desktop PC (card reader), not with the card inside the camera.
