Sorry I wasn't more detailed.The X has 2 usb ports, right?
so your hub is powering one stick for the dashcam and one stick for music? the second USB port is for power?
or your hub is powering the stick for music and for charging your phone, while the second USB port on the X is used for the dashcam?
Or know the minimum speed rating required for the app.
Great writeup. The only thing I dont agree with is only needing a 16GB partition. Your math didnt account for when you decide to save some videos. If you tap the icon it saves the files off and if you do this multiple times your 16GB will fill up fast.
Following his DISKPART instructions run the CLEAN command AFTER you do SELECT DISK xx . I think that will totally wipe all the partitions and data on the USB key. At that point the procedure should follow his steps. I haven't tried this myself, but CLEAN is supposed to clear the partitions. I know it works on disks 32GB and under, so it might work on larger disks.First thanks so much for putting this together. I'm having an issue right off the bat unfortunately. Funny enough I bought the exact same thumb drive, SanDisk Ultra Fit 128gb, but mine came formatted as FAT32. The problem is when I attempt to delete the partition in Computer Management, the option to Delete Volume (and most other options) is greyed out. I'm running the program as admin from an admin account, Windows 7 Pro.
The front driver side USB port I use to just charge my phone.
The front passenger side USB port has the USB hub plugged in. It is not powered. Well, no external power. I plug two SanDisk 8GB USB 2.0 into the hub. One for the TeslaCam and one for music files.
I did do the GPT format first and followed all instructions on a new SanDisk 16gb Cruzer Fit CZ33. Works for a while and after parking I come back to see the "x" in the camera icon. Still getting errors on drive. Running error check and repairing drive fixes it for a while.
Well, this is great news. And yet... after formatting my whole drive to FAT 32 (with no partition) I'm getting these corruption problems randomly. I'm not sure what the "fix" is supposed to be.It is easier on a Mac because, unlike Windows, it won't refuse to format a partition larger than 32GB as FAT32. So the only tool you need is the disk utility -- no third party tools and no need to go to terminal.
I dont need two partitions. but I want to format all 128 GB of my SanDisk. Since you said to NOT use the 3rd party utility to go bigger than 32GB. What do you recommend to format a single partition to 128 that "may" fix the corruption issue?
The best recommendation I can muster is to not try to do so. Format it using my instructions in my tutorial post, but skip the DISKPART command to create the 2nd partition (create partition primary align=1024). Then skip the section for formatting the music partition.
This will result in just one 16GB partition for the DashCam. This is plenty for now, since the DashCam will only store 1 hour of footage from 1 camera. Total size for that is under 2 GB. That also leaves plenty of room to save footage.
If you really want to format the whole thing as FAT32 and give it a try, then the only partitioner and formatter I would trust to do that correctly would be the GParted live CD.
I might try this myself just to see what happens.
