Repeated Camera Failing To Record For Write Speed

Repeated Camera Failing To Record For Write Speed

2 months ago I got this message. I bought a USB that now writes at 300 mb/s (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D7PDLXC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_...). The car was fine and recording for 2 months, but now is failing again with this message.

Any suggestions? I dont know why this worked and now has stopped working.

My M3 blew up a USB stick after a few months as well. I switched to micro SD suitable for a digital video recorder and it’s been faultless since.

Installed a 500GB mobile SSD drive and haven't had a single problem since.

Same thing happened to me. Teslatap is now recommending using an SD Card instead of USB. Here is their new website with specific recommendations: cammem.com .

I would suggest switching to SD card + adapter. Every single USB drive I’ve used eventually failed... I switched to SD card and everything works great now...

i switched to one of the ssd options suggested on cammem.com and haven’t seen the write speed error since.

"I bought a USB that now writes at 300 mb/s"

You can buy a USB that writes at any speed but is limited by the USB 2.0 port protocol. Maximum write speed possibly up to 15 mb/s but is probably less than that. I have a PNY 2.0 USB stick and have occasionally had that error message but does not persist.

When I finally got a USB stick the car seemed to like, it now does not like it after about a month. I have also opted for a micro SD camera style with a USB adapter and see how that goes.

I just bought & installed a Samsung Bar USB drive (https://www.newegg.com/samsung-model-muf-256be4-am-256gb/p/N82E16820147704). If it meets its specs & warranty time, should be a good value.
