Thank you @stan your screenshot and update is really helpful. I look forward to hearing your next update in a week or so to see how much more of the card is used. I am glad to see evidence my above directions seem to have helped! I will plan to recommend this to others as well. Please let me know if you have any issues in the meantime and if it is still working well in a week or 2. Either way, you’re getting more than 30GB being used now, so that’s great! I’m assuming it fixed, but let me know if that changes so I know how to help others better too.
Another update, another no mention or fix for this. Come on Wyze this really should not be taking so long to fix.
At least provide us with an update on what you are doing about this.
I just read a post that the latest beta firmware for V2’s appears to have fixed this exFAT issue for SD cards that are 256GB+:
I haven’t heard anything about V3’s yet, but Wyze appears to be making progress with resolving this.
Ah, good info…thanks! Since my update 4 days ago I’ve been checking the card daily. It gets up to 93GB before starting to overwrite, just as predicted by Slammer99uk above in this thread. I just checked the firmware version for this camera … 184.108.40.206 (with a note that there are newer updates available). I’ll update the firmware and let 'er rip!
I allowed this v2 camera to perform a firmware update; it’s now running 220.127.116.112. Here is a screengrab the notes for that release, which shows support for >32GB cards was activated last December, tho suspended due to streaming issues. Anyone know if 18.104.22.1682 incorporates >32GB support? In any case the card has resumed recording from where it left off at 86.49GB. I’ll check it tomorrow and update. Cheers
stan, just in case you missed it, carverofchoice’s comments where in relation to the beta software that Seapup is running, 22.214.171.1249, not the latest release to the public. See Seapup’s comments here
Now we wait
Thanks, Slammer99uk. I had read Seapup’s thread, but missed the beta reference. In any case, my card is up to 88.84GB now. We’ll see if it continues to increase beyond 93GB. Thanks again!
Any update stan?
Thanks, and earliest recording available under “view playback”?
Here is a screengrab of the earliest recording I can find on the card, taken after I reformatted the card 10 days ago.
Yep… running beta firmware 126.96.36.1999 on a Cam v2 set to continuous recording. Card is formatted to standard exFAT. This is where it currently stands:
I can view back to April 18 @ 2300. It looks like it will be at capacity in about 2 weeks. Once I verify that it properly starts overwriting oldest files, I’ll pull the card and do some v3 testing.
OK stan thanks, from what I can see from your postings is that the cam has written approx 2.5 Gig in 4 days and you are recording in HD. Therefore the cam has been overwriting for a couple of days now, and will not use use more than approx 91 Gig of the 256 Gig available. That about right?
Check tomorrow to confirm whether the earliest recording available will be 31st May.
Stan any update for my last posting?
Card is full and has been properly overwriting oldest files for 4.5 days using continuous HD write on a Cam v2 running beta firmware 188.8.131.529 with Samsung 256GB card formatted to exFAT standard. I can view from current datetime (23JUN2022@1955) back to 23APR2022@1200. Just updated the firmware on this v2 cam to latest beta version 184.108.40.2063 so I’ll be declaring this test successful, concluding this test, pulling card, reformat and start next test with Cam v3. Will also be testing v3 with the new version SAMSUNG PRO Endurance 256GB.
Thanks Seapup, I predict failure around the 80-90 Gig mark
Dont mind my sarcasm, just not holding my breath for a fix very soon despite WyzeDesmond stating that he is conducting tests with various FW versions and 256 Gig cards, posted 12 days ago on the other thread.
An update has been posted on the other thread
Light at the end of the tunnel
So, what’s the current status on this? Can anyone confirm that 256GB cards with exFAT are fully supported in the latest production firmware?
