1.86gb wyze camera v2 SD card storage issue

What kind of sd cards?
Spec of cards
Where did U get them? Amazon or from BestBuy?

Do U have a pic after format by Wyze.

App version?

I have tried it with multiple SD cards, all 32Gb sandisk and other brands class 10 bought from bestbuy and other major retailers.
The weird thing is they were working fine initially, then stopped working on the wyze. I checked them on my laptop and they are perfectly fine, but wyze no longer detects it as 32Gb storage but 1.86Gb storage, and even then is not writing to the sd card as I can’t replay any recordings from wyze cam.

I spend a lot of time on this forum and I’ve never heard of this before. Have you tried just letting the camera reformat the card?

How do you check on your laptop?
What software?
Did you do a bit format?

I had this exact same issue, 32gb card that it listed as 1.86gb. The solution for me was to format the card from a PC, not within the app. So remove the card from the camera > plug in to Pc > Format to FAT32 > put it back into the camera and it should read correctly

Here is a few for your bed time reading…all reported the exact same issue.

I tried formatting it through my PC but no luck. Issue persists…the fact that this is happening with multiple SD cards leads me to believe its not a SD card issue, but a defect in the Cam itself.

Probably all the cards are gone.
When PC cannot format cards.

Wyze does eat cards.

There are 2 types of format, a quick format and a full format. The camera only does a quick format. A quick format does fix or repair errors on the card it just wipes the data. So if the card is bad like if it has bad sectors those sectors will still be bad after a quick format. You need to do a full format from your computer, it will not do a full format by default you have to select it. If you don’t it will just do a quick format and fix nothing. A full format will scan, find, and fix errors found on the drive. If it can’t fix it then it will mark that part of the drive bad so that nothing will try to write to that section of the drive. Try formatting it again on your pc but do a full format @fat32.

You should also be using high endurance sd cards as those are designed to be used in cameras. Regular sd cards work but are prown to go bad at any time like yours are doing now.

Yup, that usually fixes the issue. Format FA32 not NTFS.
I don’t use high endurance cards and haven’t had issues. Others have.

Okay thanks, that makes sense. I joined in April 2020 and all of the people you cited with your problem reported it two years ago (2019).

humm. that’s not normal. what brand are they? possibly could be counterfeit 2gb…

They work perfectly fine when connected to my laptop so nothing wrong with the SD card.

Your computer is not a camera. Your computer has the ability see and fix the card which is why you should format it on your computer. And don’t use Sandisk in your camera that is why you are having issues.

I know this is old. Here is what I found and did, seems to be working.
I am under the impression that Wyze wants you to buy their SD Card, which registers a slightly different size than standard when formatted. So I simply formatted a new SD Card, and copied a recently formatted (through the Wyze app Wyze SD Card. Mine had 3 folders and time config file. I think this is tricking the software into thinking this is an acceptable card as it is already in use. I also made sure to have the camera unplugged when reinstalling the SD.

I have a few 32gb wyze SD cards which are showing o.om/o.om in two different cameras. Some how my SD cards have been deleted of all memory.

Also, screen says I have no SD card even though it is in camera. I have taken SD card out numerous time to no avail.

Photo of no memory.

Wyze brand SD cards are garbage, everyone of mine eventually failed.

Replaced with these [SanDisk High Endurance SD cards for video cameras, etc…](SanDisk 32GB High Endurance Video MicroSDHC Card with Adapter for Dash Cam and Home Monitoring Systems - C10, U3, V30, 4K UHD, Micro SD Card - SDSQQNR-032G-GN6IA Amazon.com)

Never have had a problem since

Wyze cards lasted less than a year or so

SanDisk are still working more than 3 years old
