  • Why does my PDR stop recording mid drive?

    I have my PDR set to automatically record audio and video for all drives. My plan is to use it as a dashcam. I have found that it will usually start recording for most drives, but it often cuts off after only a minute or so. No idea why it would stop recording mid drive but it does. Any thoughts?

    Second question: It never records audio even though I told it to. Am I missing something? The videos never have audio whether I play them in Cosworth or VLC.

    I noticed similar issues: https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...-longer-drives

    I replaced the SD card with good results so far but I haven't done any kind of extensive testing.

    Audio recording has never given me problems.

      I'll second checking the SD card. Which one are you using?

        Before replacing the SD card, try reformatting it. I'm not sure if the car has the option to do that, but if not you can do it on a computer.

          Mine too. I have not investigated. I assumed that trying a higher performance SD card should be attempted first. I have had an on screen notice about something to do with my card.

                I had this issue on a high endurance sandisk. I did a low level format with the SD Foundation formatting tool and it’s been fine since.

                  I checked out the latest version of the owners manual and I copied and pasted below what is said about the SD card.

                  I did not find anything in the manual about being able to format the card while it's plugged into the car but I seem to recall seeing a video of some one showing how the PDR works and I think I recall seeing a FORMAT function but I could be wrong. I don't have my car yet, so I can't go out and verify that it will or will not do a format.

                  Cheers, PB

                  To optimize PDR performance, it is
                  recommended that the SD card is
                  formatted on a regular basis. Back
                  up all recordings on the SD card
                  prior to formatting. Formatting the
                  SD card will delete all saved
                  recordings.
                  To begin, insert an exFAT formatted
                  SD card, Class 10 required, 16 GB
                  or larger recommended, into the
                  glove box SD card reader.

                    Well I was headed to bed but I was curious about if the card could be formatted in the car, so I did a search on YouTube and found a video that shows formatting is possible.

                      Try running the Speed test. I switched disks because my 256G didn't pass the test.

                          I was told by the guys at NCM upon delivery that 64Gb was about the max the PDR would use and support. The PDR compresses massively. I still have the one they gave me at 16Gb and still holding plenty of drive recordings, but will need to see what type of capacity I can get on that or does going to the 64Gb help.

                          For reference, I brought my 128GB card that I use for my GoPro's, and said that the car probably will not use it well.

                          2 cents.

                            If that is what NCM staff told you then they need some remedial technical education. Class (speed) of the SD card is what matters not the capacity.

                              I can't comment whether using a card bigger than 64 gig will have an ill effect, but in the video above, he's using a 64 gig card, which shows 680 minutes of recording time using 1080, or 11.33 hours.

                              I have read other posts that say they are using a 256 gig class 10 card (don't recall speed) with no issues. It's certainly possible the hardware (PDR) has limitations for speed and capacity though, so having the fastest and biggest card may be of no extra benefit.

                              I have a dash cam in my car, and if I put a formatted SD card that is bigger than 32 gigs, the camera won't record until I format using the cameras format option. After formatting, the recording works fine. If I pull the card out and plugged it into my computer, it shows the size as 32 gigs and not the actual higher size of the card itself, which was 64 gigs. This cameras hardware has a limitation for size it would seem and won't go over 32 gigs no matter the size of the card.

                              Cheer, PB
