Glitchy Sentry and Dashcam

My Sentry works when it wants to. Giving me info 32 sentry events but when I go to see there is none or just one 1 sec long. Also i have sporadic sentry clips while driving also 1-2 sec long. Dashcam does not record immediately when started nut has 10-20 min delay. Tesla viewer looks empty no clips but lots of them on the USB. also sometimes my dashcam icon does not pop up after inserting USB. Why I paid that much for this car?
I had similar issue with my Y and replaced my usb drive then reset my screen and works flawlessly...there are tons of threads that explain which usb drives to use. I went with

Samsung PRO Endurance 128GB along with the​

Rocketek Aluminum USB 3.0 Portable Memory Card Reader Adapter for Micro SD Card​
