I can't transfer Go Pro MP4 files to a USB to send to someone. They play on my laptop but when i try and play from the USB file i get --

This file isn’t playable. That might be because the file type is unsupported, the file extension is incorrect, or the file is corrupt.

I tried changing to a lower resolution and it's under 1gb so I am not sure why ? I am running windows 10 and tried two different USB sticks.

Any ideas please ?

Import them to your laptop using Quik (availble from the GoPro website) and then copy the imported files from you laptop to your USB drive.

Which GoPro do you have? Mine is the Hero 3+ Black Edition.

I have a GoPro Hero 4 LCD and transferring the files on to the laptop was ok, I could not transfer the file to a USB until Howard came along and solved the problem. :thumbsup: FAT32 worked, whatever that is..

:thumbsup:

FAT32 is the older (pre-NTFS / XP) file system but it does limit the maximum file size to 4GB. It’s preferable to use exFAT for anything over 4GB, but it really depends on what you’re transferring and where you’re transferring it to!

Howard, does the file format affect transfer speeds once a file is on a stick or memory card?

The answer is a rather vague ‘maybe’ :lol:

However, FAT32 is the generally the most compatible of all the formats.
