    Pics that make you smile

    You have to wonder what the reaction would be if a white chick put black makeup on her face as a costume... nah, nevermind...

    My dash camera (a119v2) is killing my microSD cards... help...

    Well, an old 16GB is all but useless in terms of my storage needs - so it's one I could use to give it one more try. Enough comments here seemed to think it was because of the type of the card. The camera has already been trashed. I have a v3 on order.

    My dash camera (a119v2) is killing my microSD cards... help...

    Well, considering this camera has killed every card I put in it - including cards that were working just fine in the other three A119v2s I have, I'm thinking it's not they cards' fault. And I'm certainly not going to put a more expensive, higher-end card in only to have it get smoked just to...

    I put in an old 16GB card for grins... Fried that card too. So this a119v2 is an SDcard murderer!

    My dash camera (a119v2) is killing my microSD cards... help...

    I'm just having a go on those four steps. The diskpart command prompt routine does not work. I'm able to select the disk and clean it, but upon "create partition primary" it errors out indicating there is no enough space on the drive. The rest of the suggestions all imply issues with the...

    And to update - after the overwrite option on SDformater complete, no errors, nice summary page - but alas, the contents of the card are 100% unchanged - all the data is there.

    So, no luck with SDformater. Using the quickformat option, it appears to work - no errors and provides a summary that indicates it worked as it should. Unfortunately, all the data is still on the card. I'm running it now with the overwrite option checked, but I have little hope. As for the...

    Thanks for the suggestions... this is what I'm after. I will try the SDFormater and report back... Yes, these are genuine SanDisk. I've used them for well over a year (probably pushing 3 years). The fill to capacity without issue until now. I've run across fakes that were formatted to...

    My dash camera (a119v2) is killing my microSD cards... help...

    I have four of the a119 V2 cameras. But, since this is more of a storage card problem, I figured I'd post my issue here. One of my cameras was displaying "card full" and "memory error". I was unable to format the card in the camera or view any files on the camera. I swapped with another card...

    Caught my first hit and run with the Blackvue DR900S-2CH

    Then it's a slam dunk. Since insurance is on the vehicle, not the driver, submit the claim to your insurer with a copy of the video. You'll have to pay the deductible up front, but it will be refunded when the other insurer reimburses yours for the repairs.

    Caught my first hit and run with the Blackvue DR900S-2CH

    I suppose it depends on the carrier, but I would think not. Especially if you have compelling evidence that can identify the vehicle that hit yours. Do you have such evidence? In most cases, insurers will hash it out directly, and when there is clear-cut evidence like a video, they at-fault...

    Caught my first hit and run with the Blackvue DR900S-2CH

    If they can track down the (insured) at-fault driver, and have a video showing the impact, you will get your deductible back once your insurer and the offender's insurer settle up on the charges. That is customary.

    Caught my first hit and run with the Blackvue DR900S-2CH

    Ha! If you tinkle on the seat and your ins co finds out, your rates are going up. The 'incident' you experienced, even though was no fault of yours, is nevertheless considered an "incident" that will be recorded on your ChoicePoint/LexisNexis risk rating record. If you've been with our...

    Failure to check blind spot almost results in a side swiping a cop

    Well, ok, that's what I was thinking, but figured that would be to blatant cop-bashing. Either way, whether deliberate or unintentional, I feel the blame (at best) is equal. The cop was in the left-most lane (excluding the HOV) with no good reason. The HOV driver has a very small window to...

    Failure to check blind spot almost results in a side swiping a cop

    Wait... that cop wasn't staying in his lane. It looked like he was moving to the center lane (without signaling) and the returned fully to his lane. Oh to have a badge.
