I have reviewed the various posts on corrupted files as this has been an ongoing issue for me. My K2 has been installed for over two years now and has generally been reliable, but I'm afraid that the video files will be corrupt when I most need them, e.g. I've been rear ended or a vehicle turns left in front of me. I have checked the camera cable connections (which I believe to be a poor design because if you overtighten the threaded connection it tends to come off the connection and loosen). I ended up putting a tie wrap on either side of the connectors and then a thrird tie wrap between the other two to keep them together in the event they were affected by vibration. I also wrapped the DVR with cushioning to minimize any vibration impacts there. But with my latest download from a recent ride I noted I still have corrupt files, as identified when viewing them in Windows Explorer. The good files will show a thumbnail, while the corrupt files just show the assigned video icon - see Explorer screenshot attached.
In reviewing the corrupt files, you notice the following:
- Both F and R cameras affected
- Corruption occurs at the end of the ride. That is, the corrupt files are the ones that are being recorded when the bike is turned off.
I have verified that the accessory power to the K2 is wired correctly and only present when ignition is ON. I am using an OEM accessory connector that is wired to a dashboard mounted switch.
Anyway, I've run out of further ideas to identify the problem so am coming to the forum to see if anyone else has experienced a similar problem and found a solution. Any thoughts useful in solving this issue so video will be available when most needed would be much appreciated.
