    Hi, i'm using the phantom professional 3. For some reason when i upload the video it keeps partitioning the files every 4gb. Does anyone know how to record straight through the flight time, and do i need to change any of the settings to do so?

    thanks in advance

    The SD Card is formatted as FAT32 which can't handle files beyond 4GB

    thanks Sabalon; if i convert it from FAT32 to NTFS do you know if that would extend the recording time? (or is it just the way it is?)

    thanks again

    Hi JBett, I had the same problem Sabalon's comment is correct but it will not fix the problem formatting as NTFS.

    I recommend your format it as "exFAT" (select in drop down menu) it worked for me and what it does it gets rid
    of all restrictions and works well.
    Cheers, JV
