Greetings Tesla Community,

I recently got the firmware update 2019.12.11 that has Sentry Mode that I was very happy about that as I have hardware 2.0 and was told I wouldn’t be receiving the Sentry Mode update! I also purchased a 32gig SanDisk 3.0 thumb drive from Amazon to use for Sentry Mode. I have a file named TeslaCam with a capital T and a capital C. and it’s formatted Fat32

When plugging it into Macbook Air, Mac or our desktop PC, I notice two folders, one is called "recent clips" and the other one is called "saved clips" See clips .mp4 for the 3 files (front, left repeater & right repeater) When plugging it to my MacBook Air and/or Mac Pro, I get "QuickTime Player can't open ...." and when I plug it into the PC I’m getting the same error message!

I tried reading forums here & chatting with Tesla Support but so far nothing has worked!

Is it possible that are the video files are corrupt?

You can’t view videos on AP2 even though sentry mode works only Tesla can see vids :eek:

Few threads scattered in forums about this

So I should stop trying to use the USB drive and contact Tesla if there are any incidents were i have to review video footage?

I believe u still need the usb ..I haven’t tried sentry mode without it as i also use usb for music as well as the teslacam ..
