A few months ago, I was involved in a car crash so severe that that our Model X came very close to getting totalled. Fortunately I was not hurt. The other driver did not appear to have been so lucky since an ambulance was called to take her away. Fourteen weeks later, we have the car back and it seems to be running as well as before.
I'm more attuned than ever to the reliability of the Tesla DashCam. It just so happened to be working as advertised when the accident occurred. The uncorrupted recording that I forgot to save in the moments immediately after the accident, but which I miraculously retrieved anyway, freed me of any liability in the accident. The recording made it very evident that the other driver was 100%. at fault. She is now being personally sued by my insurance company because of coverage limits on her auto insurance policy.
My Tesla Dash Cam just disappears. It has been disappearing more and more frequently of late. I've removed the SANDISK drive-thingy, I've rebooted the car, I've changed USB ports, I've reformatted, and renamed folders "TeslaCam." I've wiggled and jiggled the drive in each port. Each time I can get the Dash Cam to come back, eventually, only to have it disappear a few hours or a few moments later.
Besides investing in a real dash cam, is there anything else I can do in the way of troubleshooting?I know there are scores of threads about this, but I'd appreciate it if someone could link me to the correct one.
Thanks in advance.
