Gopro failed updating
Here you'll see the latest release date for software on the Hero 3, or select another model of Go Pro should you not have a Hero 3. The Go Pro site uses the latest version of Java to detect your camera's serial number and help you complete the upgrade.
(Since I have access only to a Hero 3, I won't be able to provide instructions for updating other models. Per the Go Pro site, Chrome won't work, so you should use the latest version of Safari or Firefox.
The final step in the process is to unplug the camera and wait a few seconds for it to power off.
In the rare occasion it doesn't do this automatically, power it off manually.
You want all of the files included in the update to be stored on the same screen as the DCIM and MISC folders.Plug your camera into your computer via USB before proceeding.Alright, now that that's out of the way, visit Go Pro.com/update on your computer.Either way, you'll eventually need to download the software and move it to the memory card stored in your device.Download the ZIP file, unpackage it, and move the files (not the folder itself) to the root directory.
With the latest of the Go Pro line, the Hero 3, there's a free software update that brings the ability to remotely control your camera using the i OS or Android version of the Go Pro app.
