My computer is not recognizing my camera when I connect it via USB.

First, make sure all cables are secure.

Simply tethering the camera activates charging but not a data connection.  The camera must be turned ON and connected via a USB 2.0 port in order to access the stored media or to configure the camera settings.

Try using a different port on your computer. The computer is a USB host device which supplies power to the camera. Avoid USB Hubs which split the available 5V to other devices. Hubs may not provide enough power to correctly operate the camera – particularly if you have other devices plugged in to the HUB.

I am charging my Air Pro and the light is flashing green. What does that mean?

The green flashing light means that the camera’s microSD card is full.  Remedy this condition by copying your photos and videos from the card to your hard drive, cloud account, social media site, etc.  With the media files properly saved you can safely delete the originals from the camera storage card.

How do I check the firmware version of my Air Pro camera?

When you USB tether your Air Pro camera and turn it on, you will see two folders in the root of the microSD card. The IONApp_MAC and IONApp_Windows folders have desktop application software that lets you manage the modes, files and firmware of your Air Pro device. You must have your device connected to run these applications (they will not run from the SD card unless the camera is also present).

Running the appropriate application, use the buttons: General > Firmware Check to see if your installed firmware is up to date. Keeping up with the latest firmware for camera is critical to fix issues and maintain compatibility with the constantly changing world of desktop and mobile devices.

I charged my camera for hours but it won’t turn on

Be sure that you have used the wall adapter, ION Battery Booster or a high speed USB 2.0 port to charge the camera. The camera will not charge properly on a USB 1.1 port. A USB hub with many connections may not properly charge the camera either. A camera that is turned off and then connected for charging will have a bright red LED. The LED will change to a dull red flash when the camera has finished charging.

For USB charging, make sure you are using a properly wired 5v source and an iON specification USB cable.
