    I have a P3S, and if I try to transfer pictures/videos from my Phantom via the gimbal's microUSB port, I cannot access the microSD card. I turn on the P3 before beginning transfer.

    Please help!

    The normal method is to pop SD card out - you have to push it in slightly with a fingernail.
    Put it in an adaptor and copy to your computer.
    Using the cable is very slow.

    I know that I can use a reader, but I cannot understand why the cable doesn't work at all.

    Are you using Windows or a Mac, does the computer see it as external drive or just nothing, no indication that plugged something into the computer?

    Using custom rig with Windows 7 64bit. Windows does not recognize it as an external drive. (The cable I am using supports data transfer, I've tested with a Samsung Galaxy phone)

    Hum, your windows 7 it works with other external drives?
    When I am connected to the PC my phantom makes kind of low but annoying beeping noise. Some of PC's have different speeds on some of the USB ports. But Windows 7 computer that was not upgraded but shipped with W7 shouldn't have a problem. I' am still using XP. I never removed my SD card. Of coarse you have tried another cable and a computer?
    That's all I got.:)
