I recently got a dash camera (Uniden iWitness DCAM).   It connects to my PC with the supplied micro USB cable so I can power up the unit.  But in order to transfer the video files from the camera, I have to connect the cameras SDCard to the computer.  Does anyone know if you can get this to work without having to remove the SDCard.   I didn't notice in the user manual regarding changing a setting on the camera.  Thanks for any info.

If this doesn't work, please provide the specific model of Uniden iWitness DCAM since there are currently 9 different models.

Thanks for the reply. I installed the software with the link you provided.  I clicked on the button to browse to files but still having the same issue, when I plug the camera directly into my computer, the unit does not get recognized -- there is no drive that gets added when I view under the "Computer" area that displays drives. However I am able to see the power on the unit when I plug it into my PC, so I know it is connected ok.
I looked on the box and it says Uniden iWitness DCam.  On the bottom of the dash camera,  it says MODEL: DCAM.

If you go to Devices and Printers, does it appear there?  If so, what happens when you double-click or right-click on it?

I am going to close this out, I figured it might be a setting on the camera and haven't been able to resolve. I will post again if I have chance.  Thanks for the help

I got a chance to plug in the camera I don't see it listed under devices.  However when I remove the SDCard and plug it into the computer it reads ok.  It would be much easier if I could do this without having to remove the card.
