    Anyone having problems with corrupted MP4 files? Anytime I shoot a video immediately after taking a photo in RAW format, my MP4 files are corrupted.
    When I try to open them in Lightroom I get the message: Unsupported or damaged file. When I shoot video only, there's no problem.
    The only way around this is after shooting RAW images is to land, transfer the images off the card and then re-format the card. After doing this the video files are fine.

    put the SD card back into the camera and turn on the system as normal.

    the camera will repair the file. (thats if you forgot to stop recording with the app or on a go pro pushed the stop button.)
    let the cam stay on for 2 min or so.
    then turn off the system as normal and check the file again.

    most of the time you will lose 10 to 30 seconds of the end of the clip.

    Remember always stop recording before power off. and when removing from your computer stop the card in windows in the tool bar
    and with mac just drag it to the trash, (don't worry it won't erase it.) When the icon disappears from the desktop then you can pull the SD card out.

    Thanks for the reply's!
    It looks like it was a bad card. I tried two different cards without any problems.
    The card wont format when using the DJI app and doesn't even show up when try to import the files via the USB reader.
