I'm having a problem to copy files from GoPro over standard USB connection. I can copy tons of photos without any problem, but the connections break when I copy large (800Mb+) video files.
In my system (Ubuntu 14.10), the GoPro is mounted using gvfs as: gphoto2://[usb:003,018]
I guess gvfs is causing problems. gvfs-move also fails:
gvfs-move "gphoto2://[usb:003,028]/GOPR0396.MP4" gopro/ ... progress 562814208/1990950259 Error moving file gphoto2://[usb:003,028]/GOPR0396.MP4: Error getting file: -1: Unspecified error
Do you know of any workaround to mount is as standard USB external drive?
When I use microSD card from GoPro in my Ubuntu laptop with card reader, everything copies without any problem.
BTW: I was not completely sure where to ask this question, but finally I have decided to post it here.
rsync seems to work, but it's rather slow (15Mb/s) for USB3 and microSDHC:
rsync -av --progress /run/user/1000/gvfs/gphoto2\:host\=%5Busb%3A003%2C048%5D/ gopro/ sent 13,581,365,605 bytes received 114 bytes 15,691,930.35 bytes/sec
The problem is absent in Ubuntu 14.04 - shotwell manages importing just fine.
