Revscene SpottedSpotted Revscene Members all across town
Did you happen to see a Revscene member or a car with a Revscene sticker on the road or somewhere? Or happen to see a car of interest that you'd like to share with pictures? Post it up here!
I just insert card into my MBP, which has an SD card reader built in. If yours doesn't, just use an external card reader. Need to get one of those micro to SD adapter, which comes with the microSD card.
Open up the contents once the SD Card image shows up on desktop. Once I'm done either viewing, copying, or deleting the contents, I just use "Disc Utility" to erase the thing.
I haven't used a Blackvue in a long time, but that's how I used to do it. Easier to do shit this way, IMHO.
I have a DOD dash cam (three, actually) and my SD cards are 64 GB and no issues using the cards on the Mac. Quick Time, FTMFW!
Oh, try formatting the cards using your Mac's Disc Utility first. Then do a sample recording to see if that fixes the issue. I sort of remember having to do this. Search Blackvue's web site. They mention it in there.
On my SDXC cards, formatting using MS DOS (Fat) format works on my MBP running Yosemite. Never had to do that before upgrading to Yosemite. In fact, everyone, including DOD themselves, suggest formatting using the ExFAT format for SDXC cards. And, because of this, Apple's Disc Utility automatically defaults to ExFAT, because the reader detects that the card is indeed, an SDXC card. So, the formatting of the cards is pretty important, so it seems. Avoid formatting through the dash cam (my advice). If you don't have Yosemite, you can download formatting software from here........
Damn it, one more thing. Dashcams are finicky when it comes to the manufacturer of cards. I used to think Sandisk was a good brand. Not. So many problems. I use ADATA cards and have never had a problem in almost two years. Good news is, the ADATA cards seem to always be on sale at NCIX. $19.95 or so for a class 10 64 GB. Before anyone pipes in whith, "Yeah ADATA sucks," or whatever, they work well with dash cams.
i can vouch for ADATA. i bought a sandisk at the same time i bought my blackvue. after couple months, i finally installed the blackvue and the sandisk card crapped out in 2 days. had to send it back for RMA. got myself ADATA for the time being and so far it is rock solid.
If you have more than one USB port, try it on the others. I still think it is the card. Launch Disc Utility and see if it detects the card or even the card reader. If something shows up, mount it and format the card.
I had Patriots go bad on me, as well. I've had Blackvue, Fine Vue, Chinese cheapies, and other dash cams and the ADATA is the only card that works with all of them. BTW, I have seven of them (64 GB, micro SD) and none have gone bad. Spend the 20 bucks and get the ADATA.......... actually, it's 10 bucks for a 32 gb right now.
No video since it all happened behind/beside me, but while slowing down in a merge lane to let a semi go past, the guy behind me decides to pull in behind the semi (no problem) and gun it (problem), thus filling the space I was about to move into. If he would've just maintained the slower speed we were going to merge in we both could've fit just fine.
