@mygopro67

Sorry to hear you are having these issues!

There are several common causes for this behavior:

  1. Using a non-approved SD card is the most likely culprit.  What make and model card are you using?
  2. Voice activation can misinterpret things you or others say, turn it off.
  3. Old firmware.  What version are you running?

@mygopro67

SanDisk makes many U1 cards, which specific model is yours?

 

What firmware version are you running?
