    Buy a new SD card, that includes an adapter for the SD card slot on your PC. Remove the card from the Phantom and it's easily accessible from your external drive on the PC, quick transfers. I have found that it's easier to grab everything and move it to a file on the PC to review and decide if to keep it, then place it in whatever file you want. Reviewing files from the SD card is much slower.

    Also, if you delete everything on the SD card before you replace it in the Phantom, the file numbers will start over (OOPS, DJI!). To avoid this copying nightmare, keep one of your files and rename it each time you transfer to the last number of the current transfer- which will force the phantom to start the numbering where you left off..... you'll see what I mean when you start transferring this way- it ends up being pretty easy after you do it a couple of times. Another 'protocol' to follow.
