I have had my Tesla Model 3 SR+ for a little over two weeks now. I use a WD Easystore 2TB external HDD to store the videos. I formatted the drive and created the TeslaCam folder.
Since setting this up, I've noticed once my car has sat idle for a few hours or overnight, when I get back in and the car turns on, I get a red circle outline with a red exclamation point. When I touch the icon I get a message stating:
"Dashcam: USB drive is not readable"
"Try to set up your drive to a supported format again"
When I first got this icon, I thought the issue was with the drive so I was erasing the drive, reformatting the drive and creating the folder, and then after a few tries I would get the dashcam working again. I verified that every time I was doing this the drive was always in FAT32 format, even when I was receiving the error message. More recently, I found out that if I leave the drive plugged in as normal and just reset the MCU then the dashcam starts working again.
I'm not sure if resetting the MCU everyday can be damaging long term. I'm not too comfortable resetting the MCU multiple times a day to get the dashcam functional yet I do feel it is a necessary feature. Is anyone else having this issue?
