Too many
Can you try formatting the cards and running them through h2testw from here:

It's worth trying it with both cards as that will tell you if they're both ok - it sounds like there's an issue after the 4GB mark.

Has the 0805 ever worked?

If the cards both check out ok maybe there's something going wrong with the battery but check the cards first regardless.

Thanks for your ideas the 0805 has done this from day one I contacted the seller but he never replied to all my messages
I will test the cards next as you say
I have it plugged into my 12v and it looks like all is working ie blue light flashing and no shut down chime
Many thanks

Solved

Opened the cam up thinking id see a swollen battery and straight away i noticed the black wire that comes from the battery to the circuit board was not connected it was sat on top of the red wire so i soldered it back to were it should be and all is working as it should.
It was only recording 35 mins and missing the end of my journey to work because the cam had no internal battery to close the last file (was set a 5 min recycle)

hope this can be some help to someone as it did my head in from the day i bought it seller didn't want to know was blaming the SD card

You got a lemon. Glad you solved it! Who is the unscrupulous seller, by the way?
