    Problems with GoPro since firmware update

    I just finished downloading and installing the firmware update from the GoPro website. I did it by putting the SD card in my mac and then doing the install from the SD card rather than hooking up the GoPro via USB. Everything seemed to go well, I can do upside down video now and all new setting options in the menu screen are there.

    However, I have encountered some problems in that the image is much darker than before the update and it will only record for a limited amount of time before stopping. The red light keeps flashing but if I am recording for two minutes, imovie will say I have 2 minutes worth of video to download but once complete, there will only be 30 seconds or a minute of video. I have tried different SD cards and multiple tries so it doesn't appear to be the card or the battery.

    I have contacted GoPro to see if they have any suggestions but thought I'd try this forum to see if anyone has had this type of problem or if anyone has any suggestions.

    I had some issues doing my firmware update as well, though different problems

    I would recommend this, take out your card, place in computer, do a complete format in computer, put card back into pro, format in pro, put back in computer, put update on card, put card in pro with pro turned OFF, go through update steps...make sure pro has good charge, is NOT plugged into computer

    give it a try
