Teslacam viewer slow (30 seconds) with Samsung SSD T7 500 GB


May 15, 2018
I have a Samsung SSD T7 500 GB drive that I use for the Teslacam (2018 Model 3). When launching the viewer, I have 30 seconds of a blank viewer before I can view any clips. I believe I formatted it with the option provided in the Tesla UI. Previously I had a 128 GB Samsung thumb drive, and I don't remember it being this slow.

Has anyone else experienced this? I believe this is one of the drives that others have recommended and have had good luck ith.

The drive is in a Taptes hub:

This is the drive:

Since it takes 30 seconds before I can view anything, I hardly ever review footage.
