Got a strange problem that just occurred over the last few days. The camera is going into card reader mode (or whatever its called) instead of recording. It's not plugged into a car USB port, it's plugged into a conventional car charger, the same one it's always been plugged into.

It's a V2, and the power is straight into the camera, not the GPS base.

Any ideas? Thanks

Are you using the supplied long Viofo power cable or something else?

To be honest I think so but I'm not 100% sure, it's been in my car for quite a while, the cable is the same as it's always been connected to, it is plugged into the usb charger supplied with the cam.

Maybe try a USB wall charger as a power source to see it occurs then as well.

It appears that the supplied Viofo USB charger has become defective, changed it for a different one and camera now working fine again.
