Documents in App are empty

6 comments

Recently I managed to install and set up the K2 system on my motorbike. Everything seems to work; after my first trip I checked the SD-card on my computer and the video's on this card cover my whole trip. Nice. But when I checked the same video's using the app on my cellphone (selecting "Document" knob) and then selecting the "Files in Device" knob this file seems to be completely empty!! Did I miss a setting somewhere? What went wrong?

You have to download the files from the camera to your phone. While connected to the camera with your phone via WiFi, select a movie clip and select download. It will then be copied to your phone. Be warned, it is slow. Alternately, I connect my phone to the K2 via a USB cable and copy the files from the K2 to my phone. If you copy them to the same folder that the K2 copies them to, they will show up in the App. Hopefully that makes sense.

Thanks for your help! I now realise that my description of the problem is not clear enough: when I want to download the files* I can connect the camera with my phone. When I press the "Document" knob (left of the "settings" knob) in the main screen of the app I get another screen with two knobs: the left one shows a folder with the text "Files in Camera"; the right one shows a folder with the text "Files in Device". But when I press the left knob expecting to view a list of movie clips the screen remains totally empty (black). I get the same result with pressing the right knob. So how can I get the list of clips instead of complete "darkness"?

 

* I do understand that you can not download all the movie clips by wifi connection using the app; I just want to use this method when I want to upload one or two specific clips. Thank you for your advise to use a USB-cable as an alternative (faster) connection to upload some clips!

Hopefully someone more experienced with chime in with some suggestions. I've only had the K2 setup for about a month, it replaced my C3 system. I do have some questions for you.

1. What firmware version is it on?

2. What size SD card are you using?

3. Did you format the card with the Innovv app?

4. While connected via Wifi, can you view the live video?

These are a few things I would look into if I was trouble shooting the issue if I was having the same problem.

1. The firmware version on my K2 is: K2.20190614.V0.57

2. I use a Samsung EVO Plus 256GB micro SD (100MB/s).

3. I formatted this card with the Innovv app.

4. While connected via Wifi, I can view live video on my phone*, front and rear.

 

* My phone is a Nokia 8 (with Android 9).

I know that the K2 sometimes shows strange behaviour when using a 256GB card. So do you have the possibility to check this using a smaller card?

 

How many videos are on the card?

To check Frostie's suggestion I changed the 256GB Samsung SDcard with a 128GB Sandisk Extreme V30 SDcard normaly used in a SJCAM. After formatting this card using the app I checked the files under the "Document" knob. With positive result: two (running) video's, front and rear. I also was able to copy one of the video's to my phone. So the problem is detected now: the K2 is not totally functional with a 256GB card!

 

Frosty and Slygrin, thanks for your help! It is up to Innovv to solve this problem.......

  • Had the K2 for 5 days now. Overall its pretty good. I have a few issues that I need to look into. 1 - The lens seems to black out in the bottom (say 4 and 8 O'Clock) A bit like the lens has Glaucoma... 2 - I start my bike, put helmet, gloves on, ride off, but recording doesn't start until I am a few miles away, has to be at least 5 minutes after setting off, and maybe 6 minutes after starting the bike. An I supposed to wais 6 minutes before setting off? 3 - I have to do something with how I transfer the files, WiFi just doesn't cut it. My bike (R1250GS Adventure) automatically powers off after X minutes, not sure exactly how many, to preserve the battery, the WiFi hasn't managed to transfer a 3 minute file before the bike powers off. I cant view from the bike, stream, as it doesn't stream, it just jitters from frame to frame. I have an iPhone XS Max if that makes any difference. So far I have not been able to download or view any recording, only when setting up on live view. On the plus side, it only took 30 minutes to set up on the bike, only having to remove the tank panel. Does anyone have any thoughts on my three issues?
  • After the firmware v61 update, I noticed the blue light on the power transformer never goes off - no matter how long the bike is off. Is this normal? What could possibly be powering this other than my battery?
  • I'm at a slight disadvantage, as my bike is still in a container ship, travelling back to the US, but I'll see if I can make my point clearly enough. I've been told that if I connect to the K2, using WiFi, and the K2 App on my cell phone, that the time would be correctly set within the K2. I'm afraid that this is not correct, at least it's not correct under a few sets of circumstances. First of all, in certain parts of the world, you need to set your phone to override the current time, and set it manually. For instance, all of China uses a single timezone (Beijing time), but my iPhone got confused, and thought that there were multiple time zones, and so, I had to override the time setting. As a result, although I connected my iPhone to the K2WiFi, and then enabled the IOS app, and selected settings, I still ended up with a situation where the time on the K2 was at least 1 hour different from the time on my phone. Throughout my trip, I often tried to get the time of the K2 to be properly set, and I think that I achieved it only once. In all other cases, it was between 1 and 2 hours off. So, my question is, why don't you allow me to set the time, or select the time zone within the K2, rather than relying on using the Phone? As IOS versions on the phone change, it is likely that they'll handle time zones differently, perhaps forcing you to make odd choices in some cases, but if I was able to manually set the time zone in the K2, we eliminate any chance that the system will have the wrong time. The outcome, if you want to set the time, connect to the K2 over WiFi, set the time, and exit. It's just about perfect, and it addresses all of the possible irregularities that exist as we travel around the world. Thoughts?
