    Is the card corrupt? Did you try reformatting it and then try to record on it again? Was it put in properly?

    Bet you are not using the right memory type of SD card !

    16GB is bad because of the potential overwrites .

    I wish.
    Yes, you need to find out which type and largest capacity supported by your camera.

    If you install an SD card which is too large or the wrong type, it will not record.

    Samsung Pro Endurance or
    SanDisk High Endurance , the correct MLC Nand .

    Surely any Class 10 MicroSD card will work?

    Work yes but suffer reliability and longevity issues due to TLC Nand .

    Look at the online warrany and it will say warrany void if used in dashcam whereas the High Endurance is 2 years , Samsung Pro Endurance even better .

    SanDisk Ultra is one of the worst cards .

    You need to go into a forum sub section, not the 'New Posts' screen.
