Have you cleared all the cache?
Do you have a GOOD power source?
I’ve had problems w/ USB cords.

Have you tried the one micro SD card? When and where did you buy the camera, and what type is it?

The camera is a Wyze Cam v2 with firmware. Power seems fine to the camera. I tried another micro SD card, but it too was not recognized. Bought both cameras and the working SD from Amazon. I have a working Pan Cam. I guess I could swam SD cards between them. Hope it doesn’t break both…

If that doesn’t work, keep in mind that this forum is primarily a user to user community. If you don’t get a helpful reply here, please file a Support Request. Depending on the nature of the problem, rather than use the website link, it is helpful to submit an App Log and/or a Firmware Log.

If anyone has a problem about no SD card issue, check that your Wyze V2 is eligible for replacement .

Contact support. My original 2 cams would not hold the SD card. They would not pop into place. It was a defect in a batch of cams and they replaced both cams. Not had a problem since.

After swapping SD cards from a working cam, to the other cam, WYZE support replaced the camera.
Great Customer support for a cheap cam. SOLID!!! I will continue to recommend these.
Thanks, Kev

Hello, you can first plug your SD card to another devices, like PC or Mac to check whether the problem is on your card or the port of your camera. If it’s the problem of SD card, you can format the card to have try. But before the format, you should make a backup in advance. Or you can download the Bitwar Data Recovery to avoid data loss. Hope it’s not too late to give the answer. Have a nice day.

I followed the directions to use the scan disk formatting tool as I had a Scan Disk 32 GB high speed MSD card. I used the FAT32 format as that what is recommended by Wyze. I also followed the instructions to safe eject the card. When inserting the card I noticed it does show you an orientation of how the card should be inserted into the camera. I followed that and received the aforementioned by others “happy gong” sound. I did not have to reboot my camera. I went online with the camera and was no longer getting the “no sd card inserted” error message. I should mention I was going to install the cameras latest firmware first before inserting the card but as the firmware install failed twice I gave up. But clearly works with not the very latest. I am using V2.5.36. Hope this helps others.

This works!!

thank you, fixed it!..this was driving me crazy…:slight_smile:

Used the SanDisk formatting solution on a non-sandisk micro SD and it worked perfect. Make sure the SD card is inserted while the camera is off so it recognises it when it’s turned on.

Just changed routers and had to reprogram everything (phones, pads, T’stat, cameras,etc) with the new router and password. When I got to the Wyze cameras the camera wouldn’t recognize the micro card; kept giving me the “no card” error message. After trying a few other things, went to this site and saw folks were re-formatting the card. Placed the card(s) in an adapter and formatted each card ( didn’t use the QUICK format) on the computer, plugged them back into their respective cameras and VOILA; ding, ding! Thanks for the help!!!


I was having the same issue. SD card not being recognized. I downloaded the scandisk formatting tool, ejected the card from the PC when finished, and re-installed in my pancam. The card was recognized and I then formatted it in the camera, it now works like a charm.
