If you are on windows, plug your camera into your PC and navigate to "My Computer" or "This PC". You should see your body camera's assigned drive letter. Usually, D, E, or F. Depending on how many devices are connected to your computer. Right-click on the drive letter assigned to your body camera and select "Format" towards the bottom. Another window will pop up showing you the settings available to format your device. Make sure the "File System" is set to fat32 if your camera is a 32GB model or smaller or exFAT if your camera is 64GB or larger. Enable "Quick Format" and then press "Start".

How do I view the files I have recorded?

What is the difference between high, medium and low in the video quality menu option?

High, medium and low are referring to the bitrate of the video. The higher the bitrate the higher the video quality. If you want to get the most battery life, setting the video quality to low will allow you to get up to 1 hour of extra battery life in certain modes.

Can I enable night vision mode without the infrared LED's glowing red for stealth operations?

Yes, in night vision mode the cameras lens infrared filter is removed, which allows more light to pass through. This enables the camera to be 3-4X better than in day mode in low light conditions.
