Same with my Q500+. The controller doesn't retain the date and time, which it should easily get from GPS.The controller is set to the correct time and date, but when I take photos and videos the date shows at 1979 all the time. How can I get it to reflect the correct date and time for each picture?
I subsequently used a free app (EaseUS Partition Master) to convert the exFAT 64 GB formatted card to a Fat32 partition. All is well, and the 5 minute file size is not a problem.A 64 GB SD card cannot be formatted in Fat32. It requires exFAT or NTFS. The CGO3 does not support NTFS, therefore its exFAT only. But CGO3 will not generate a correct date. It's just crazy what it does ... dates back to 1979, but sometimes the correct date with the wrong time. What's the answer?? Thanks.
UPDATE: CGO3 does not like exFAT, and is really only comfortable with FAT 16 or FAT 32. Nothing else will result in a correct data on the file's timestamp. Best case scenario for me with exFAT is that all files are misdated by a minus 5 hours (i.e.: Files recorded at 10:00 AM will be timestamped as 5:00 AM). Furthermore, files saved to exFAT format SD card are limited to 2 GB, the very old FAT 16 file limitation. This needs to be fixed!!
