SD Card Formatting (total time)

When using the Wyze app to format a sd card, how long does it normally take for example 32gb or even 64gb? I have tried both and it doesn’t seem to ever finish the format after more then a hour. Just not sure if there is an issue with the cards i have, or it really takes a long time.

this is with the Pan version with latest app and firmware


It should take less than a minute. I’d suggest removing the card and formatting on a computer using the official SD Card Association tool below:

Official SD card formatter from the SD Card Association:


Gave that a try still no luck, i will try a couple other cards to make sure there isn’t an issue with the new cards.


Apparently the firmware may have been the issue, it said it was up to date at, I joined beta because i like testing, and updated to and all cameras rebooted with all cards now working, not sure it was a bug with previous version.
