So I've got a 70Mai 70 Minutes dashcam flashed with the English firmware.

However although I am 100% my SD card is fine (Samsung MB-MC32GA/EU EVO Plus) and free from physical damage the device keeps saying the 'SD Card Error' message after some minutes.

Please note also that this issue doesn't happen everytime.
In fact I've to switch off and on the dashcam to get rid of it.

Any idea of how to solve it?? :unsure:

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
have you tried another card?

just because it passes a health check in your PC doesn't mean it's ok for use in your camera

Oops sorry forgot to say that yes I already tried with four different (high quality / high speed) SD cards.

if all cards give you problems then it's likely a hardware problem, talk to the seller about getting it replaced

Well the fact is that recordings are OK otherwise how would the reader /writer be able then to work? :D

Can't it be a firmware bug?

Indeed. :unsure:

Well I will keep it as it is because it would cost me more money and time shipping it back (GearBest) than waiting for the next 70Mai dashcam hehe.

Thanks for your help.

I have the same problem. The SD is new and error free but sometimes the dashcam starts with red led.
I am pretty sure it is a firmware problem, probably when the dashcam shutdowns while recording, sometime it brokes the video file or the filesystem.
A simple reboot fix the issue but it is quite annoying.

It happens on both 70mais I have, both have firmware 1.0.5, international version.
Hoping to solve this problem, I am trying to manually upgrade to 1.0.7 since the app doesn't find any update available.

I confirm I have solved this issue, on both my 70Mai cams, flashing the 1.0.7 international firmware!
