You may have noticed that I’ve been shy on vlog posts as of late. This has been an ongoing issue of mine – you see, my GoPro has not been working with me. At all.
It all began shortly after I made the purchase. Immediately I noticed that it was incredibly difficult to get to turn on. I asked around and heard that sometimes you have to hold the button or wait a moment, but mine goes above and beyond that. Half the time I can’t get it to turn on without removing the battery completely. I miss a lot of good shots this way.
If that wasn’t enough, I also have non-stop frustration with the software. It used to freeze or crash, but now I can’t even get it to load a single video. I’ve tried the new update with no luck and been as patient as possible, but I’m at my wits end with this thing.
My solution? Uninstall everything and reinstall after I’ve upgraded to Windows 10. I’m going to wipe the memory card clean. I’m going to be patient. And I’m going to hope to hell that this little camera starts working soon because I’ve hardly had a chance to test it out.
I think the only good thing that came out of my last hour of struggling to get footage from this past weekend’s wedding has been the massive bowl of popcorn I indulged in while working. I’m sure my keyboard is now a little greasier, but omg do I love popcorn!
I would really like to hear if other people have similar issues with their GoPro – I use a silver Hero 3. Please let me know if you’ve come across any solutions I may not have thought of!
