Guide Camera Dropping Off - USB Issue?

I was trying to get my All Sky camera set up working tonight for the Perseids and I left it taking 8 seconds exposures (supposedly 500) and came back to find 276. It said it had taken over 400 but the number was 276. I deleted file 276, it got re-made, then it got overwritten every 8 seconds. So it seems to have done the first 276 no problem but then keeps writing over the top of it, any thoughts? I'm just using a CCD Sequence nothing fancy and no errors:

I just restarted the sequence and it continued doing the same thing but overwriting picture 001 every time

I stopped disconnected, stopped indi, started indi and kicked it off again and all seems fine now

Yes not an easy one to reproduce, I guess it will be a code based fault find

The Time Stamp cures it, I took 1,000 pics earlier no problem so will try again tonight

Yes, I believe it has nothing to do with the number of images being large.

Hi all,

I'm having an issue with my set up (unchanged) whereby my ZWO ASI 120mm mini is losing connection. Generally there are 2 times it happens:

1. At initial power up - if I unpark my NEQ6, slew somewhere, plate solve with my AS1600 and then go to start guiding, the ZWO doesn't take a frame. If I restart the camera driver it may or may not recover. If I unplug the camera and plug it back in it always works
2. The annoying one, every time I meridian flip it slews, plate solves, then fails to take an image with the guide camera. Again, disconnect and reconnect sometimes works but sometimes doesn't (and may kill kstars too) whereas an unplug and plug back in always works

It's relatively new as a camera and had been trouble free and I have tried a couple of USB cables but it's consistent. I have checked the logs but there are no specific errors I can see, it just fails to work

I wondered if anyone had seen similar?
