toumei64:+Charles Lohr Thank you for your website and all of the information. It's been very helpful. I'm having a problem, though. My camera starts recording, and then after about 15-30 minutes, it shuts off. I can turn it back on and usually start it recording again, but it always does this, so I only get 1-2 files worth of video (plus a 0-length file for the recording in progress when it shuts off). I don't think it's the battery. The only thing I can figure is that it's the memory card, but I've formatted several times and also tried a different card. I'm about to send it back for a replacement, I think. Have you ever seen this issue? Thanks.
Elektrikovo: Simply and smart... thanx
PLwhyduck: Hi, can you help? Yesterday I got 2 808s, now plugged in to my PC (with my SDCard) and neither of them work. I press >power< and nothing. Should I load'em for a few hours or (better) send back?
neil a: Hi Chuck....Can you help? I have a 808#26 and want to turn off the date time stamp , trouble is I have a mac and can't seem to do it, and ideas would be gratefully received , thanks, neil
Charles Lohr: They are sold with or without an SD (SDHC) card. Usually, do not buy a camera with a card because some sellers will supply the worst (slowest) possible card. For a micro camera, don't buy a generic SD card because the random write speed can be too slow.
fsm83: Does it come with TF card mine didn't?
John Grimes: You get what you pay or people. This is a $5 camera that's made in China.
Charles Lohr: Externally, try a different USB cable and a different power source. Internally, inspect the circuit board for anything unusual. Verify the crystal is securely soldered. Otherwise, replace the camera.
Zaid Rashid: Hey, I have a problem with my 808, When i hold the buttons i get no flashing light, When i plug it into the computer to try and charger it, I still get no L.E.D indication and the computer does not even recognize that anything has been plugged in, It cant be broken and i have hardly ever used it and It has not been through ruff times, Any help?
Charles Lohr: Go to the "808 car keys micro camera review" and see "My 808 does not work. What can I do to fix it?".
LoganE15: just finished charging, and still having problems, any other suggestions? thanks
Charles Lohr: The problem is probably either the USB cable, the USB port power or the flash card. Charge for 75 minutes. The LED is not a reliable indicator of battery charge.
LoganE15: Charged my camera, it is recognized as free storage on the computer, reformatted anyways. It turns on, yet if i push shutter button, it flashes quickly and then starts blinking. Anybody have this problem?
Charles Lohr: Mass storage device - all 808 cameras will install on Windows Mac or Linux. Webcam mode - some require no driver on windows and Mac, some 808s only work on Windows and require a Windows driver. See "808 versions with webcam mode or driver" on the 808 review page.
John Andres: are these cameras Mac compatible? @Normandy5
