- Those cheap 7dayshop headcams – setting time/date
Just ordered one of these – seems ok and the instructions are nearly in English 😳 I’ve figured out how to turn on and record etc but not how to set the time. There is something in there about copying a .txt file onto the SD card and setting the time in there, but each time I do this then connect the camera to the PC, the .txt file disappears and the in camera time goes to 01/01/2008 @ 11:00.
Any one recently done this and could shed some light??Posted 4 years agoDezBSubscriber
You need a file called tag.txt with the dateTime in. you copy this to the root folder on your microSD card.
When you insert the card and turn cam on it reads the file and deletes the .txt file.
If its like my old one, you end up not bothering because you have to do this everytime you use it!. i also have one that remembers the date, so yours hopefully will be like that one…
File has to be in the correct format, should be one on the cd that comes with the cam?Posted 4 years agoprojectMember
