GoPro and Rapid Photo Downloader

A GoPro Hero 7 attached by USB to my PC mounts successfully and I can see and copy the recorded videos using the normal file manager. However, when I run Rapid Photo Downloader, the GoPro unmounts and mounts repeatedly until I close Rapid Photo Downloader, after which it is again accessible in the file manager.

Any ideas on what the cause of this could be and how I could resolve it?

Ubuntu 19.10
RPD 0.9.17

Please carefully consult the instructions for bug reports here:

Sorry but I will likely not be able to look at this bug report until sometime in the first quarter of next year.

I have submitted a bug report and log file. Let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help.

In the mean time, I’m still using RPD, but with the SD card in a reader, so there’s no real rush from me.
