Wyze Cam Base Station Microsd not recognized

I have the new Wyze cam base station and the outdoor camera. Put the MicroSD card in but it says “BAse Station MicroSD Card” “MicroSD Card is not available” There is a Format to teh right, but it doesnt do anything. How do I get the base station to recognize the MicroSD Card

I am also having the same issue. Need assistance as well.


Another thread discusses this, and it appears the cards need to be FAT32 format (but cards larger than 32GB arrive with an exFAT format).


Are there still no updates to this? I erased and set to Fat32 but my 64gig isn’t working.


The Base Station only supports up to 32 GB cards (https://wyze.com/wyze-outdoor-expansion-cam.html).


Welcome Back @fscottg Try this:

  • Reformat the uSD card on your workstation using FAT32 and un-check the default “Quick format” option which will force a complete overwrite of the card and fix or lock out bad cells.

A little off topic but always use High Endurance cards in your device.

FAT32 and anything at or under 32GB is the answer.

I ordered 1TB card only to find that I need 32 GB.

How much did you pay for that 1 TB card? If it was less than $200, it might actually be a 32GB card:

I am successfully using 64 GB cards in my two outdoor cameras, and a 128 GB card in my base station. I used the freeware version of AOMEI Partition Assistant – Free Partition Manager Software for Windows - AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard – to format the microSDs from exFAT to FAT32 and it is recognized and usable by all the devices.
