Re: will only record 2 minuets

Hello, @craigg10523. Which SD card are you using? The brand name, type, and capacity will be helpful information. See if your card is among the recommended ones on this list

 

If it is, we recommend that you format the card (after saving your media) following these steps. Then, perform a manual firmware update to clear out any possible issue with the current installation. Do this even if the camera may already have the latest firmware. The steps under Manual Update here will guide you. Be sure to select the correct camera model. 

Let us know how it goes. Thanks!
