GoPro is a series of action camera for outdoor activities, including Hero camera and Karma Drone. But the files in GoPro may be lost because you delete them or format the built-in storage card by mistake. How to recover deleted GoPro files is still little known. You can try some GoPro recovery software first. To avoid things in vain, I would recommend that you use RePicvid Photo Recovery to recover deleted GoPro videos.
RePicvid GoPro Recovery Software is a versatile tool to recover deleted, formatted and lost files from GoPro camera, along with memory card.
How to Recover Deleted GoPro Video Files with GoPro Recovery Software Step 1. Connect GoPro to Computer
You can choose to connect the GoPro camera to computer with an USB cable, and make sure it displays as a separate disk on your computer. If not, just remove the microSD card and connect it to computer with a card reader.
Step 2. Scan GoPro Camera for Deleted Files
Run the GoPro recovery software and select the type of files to be restored. Then click the disk where the GoPro camera or SD card is. Next, start scanning the destination disk and find as many files as possible. You can preview the deleted videos after the scan.
Step 3. Recover Deleted GoPro Photo and Video Files
Select the deleted files you want to restore and click "Recover" to choose a storage folder. And the software will begin to recover the selected video files from your GoPro camera.
1. Before conducting GoPro recovery, you'd better not shoot with your GoPro camera. Although many software claims to be able to recover overwritten files, it depends on the situation.
2. Download the oftware to computer before connecting GoPro to it. Prevent any active processes from writing to the disk.
3. Save the recovered GoPro files to any folder other than target disk.
it may be that the card is not formatted to a file system that is read by both your camera & pc, find a format that works for both, there is Fat16 Fat32, ExFat, & NTFS the last 2 can hold larger files, but a pc should read them all, if your camera has a unique file system then it will never work on your pc.
GoPro battery dead. Won't charge in the camera. No charge light comes on when you connect the camera to a USB. There's the scenario. Good tip on the GoPro battery shocking technique posted by Rabscuttle above. I discovered that my vehicle USB cigarette lighter adapter drains the GoPro battery when it's turned off. With the GoPro battery completely dead, the camera will not charge it. If the GoPro battery voltage falls below a certain point, the camera's circuitry is set to turn off the internal charger as if there's no battery in the camera at all. The recommended solution is to buy an external charger, which is able to charge a completely dead battery. The battery shocking method saves that expense.
Connecting a 9 volt battery to the GoPro battery for 30 seconds can give the battery enough charge to allow the camera to recognize the battery. A 9 volt battery from a smoke detector, a pair of jumper leads, and two straight pins is what I used to get my GoPro battery charged enough to allow the camera to recognize the battery and begin charging.
