My older GoPro 2 would appear as if it were just a "regular" external drive when plugged in via USB. However, my new GoPro 4 Silver appears as a "GoPro MTP Client Disk Volume" instead. This causes me a number of problems:
I have scripts written that expect an addressable drive letter, and since the new "client disk volume" doesn't have a drive letter, they don't work.
When I open a large video file, rather than playing immediately from the beginning of the file and being able to seek through (using VLC or similar) the new "client disk" appears to copy the entire file across the (relatively slow) USB connection and only then starts to play. For very large files this really slows things down.
Any suggestions how to get the older, much more friendly behavior back?
