    Evening all, I've been having a problem with my dash cam, the last two occasions that I have removed the micro SD to review the footage I discovered that only the last two segments of footage have been stored, any ideas?

    The camera is a Blackvue DR380G-HD

    Have you re formatted the sd card recently?

    No, the card was as it arrived with the camera, I did format it this evening but haven't tried it yet.

    cards can go bad. especially with the high amount writes that dash cam is doing.

    Format the card and see how that goes. Or try a different card

    Here's a link to the software to format the sd card.

    Also check that the firmware is the latest version. They do update them now and again.

    Quick update, the disc format worked a treat, I have now also re-formatted using the software on the link posted by Doc and installed the latest firmware, I was surprised to read that they recommend a weekly format.
