    That has nothing to do with formatting.
    Did you close the file before landing?
    If not you can try putting the SD (it's not a not sim) card back in and closing it.

    Happens to me when I forget to stop recording upon landing. When I do this, I put the card back in the Phantom camera slot, turn on the Phantom, wait several minutes, turn off the Phantom and more than likely the file will be ok

    It's important to stop recording at least a minute before switching the phantom off, because it takes a while to write any buffered material and close the video file properly.
