I have Hero3+ Black Edition.
For now I cannot shoot or even configure the camera when it is connected to a notebook with a USB Cable.
When I connect my camera to a notebook with a USB Cable, a charging battery icon and a USB icon appear on a camera screen. Both buttons do nothing, are inactive (Shutter/Select Button and Power/Mode Button). Only Wi-Fi On/Off Button works. In addition, it is not possible to configure the camera with GoPro phone app – setting icons are disabled. Moreover, the phone app does not even show a current picture from the camera when the camera is connected with USB Cable (I use GoPro Android app on Google Nexus 5).
My question is: is it possible to use a camera when it is connected to pc/notebook with a USB cable? Is it somewhere configurable in the camera?
My goal is: I want to shoot and immediately see the result on a screen of my notebook. At least from MicroSD card. For now I make a picture or video, turn the camera off, take out MicroSD card, put it into a notebook and only now have a possibility to see the result. It is cumbersome.
