Given methods vary between devices..

The model I have, worked by creating a file called time.txt using say MS Notepad and copying to the "root" of the micro SD disk.

The file contained the current time is this format:-.

2011.03.31 14:42:30 Y

(Meaning date of 31st May 2011 Time 14.42 30 Secs)

This worked perfectly for me....

To REMOVE time stamping you apparently change the "Y" to "N" as follows:-

2011.03.31 14:42:30 N

Other versions of AV Recording Glasses require a similar text file called "timeset.txt" and I think the format required is just the numbers without colons or period punctuation......

    You create a simple text file (say using MS Notepad)
    consisting of a single line of date text infor in the format

    2011.03.31 14:42:30 N

    and save it on the SD Card as a file called:- time.txt

    The last letter of the line is either Y or N for wherether you want the actual videos to be visibly timestamped..

    The Sunglasses clock should start from that precise time, as soon as it recognises this file on an installed SD CARD..

    N.B. Other versions of AV Recording Glasses require a similar text file called "timeset.txt" and I think the format required is just the numbers without colons or period punctuation......

    My solution was just to put N in the time.txt file it worked and removed the time stamp

    I followed your instructions and they didn't work. I looked in the product manual and I noticed that there wasn't a space between the time and the "N". After removing the space and taking a video, the timestamp went away! The pair I purchased are very picky, here is what was in my text file that made it work: 2013.06.11 10:00:00N

If you bought the Kogan (Australia) version of this sunglasses video camera you need SETTIME Y as the record format. Use Notepad to create the file and drop it onto the camera microSD as a peer to DCIM.
