When I connect the camera to my PC it just turns on and starts recording. I have it connected to the mini USB port on the camera, not on the GPS receiver. Anyone know what's up?

Try it this way:
  1. Switch the camera on
  2. Connect it to your pc
  3. Should work now

This is how I connect mine. If I try to connect while switched on, I get the same result as described in the first post, regardless of which USB lead I use.

Have you tried using a different USB port on your computer ? (assuming you have more than one).

Could be the motion detector is active and not allowing it to switch to usb mode.

I think you must connect to the camera itselft, not on the mount.

If the motion detector mode is on it wil start recording if you even breathe while holding it or if it is facing something that is even slightly moving. It is very sensitive. So when you plug it in it might get jiggled and start recording. Just set it down and don't move it.
