    I've got my camera set to take jpeg's. When I go to view them the all say jpeg file but only part up them show up as a view-able preview. When I go to open them and look at them, the ones that I can't preview open up and say that it's PCD file with incorrect extension and I can't open them. I flew it some today, let it sit for an hour or so, changed batteries and flew it again. Somewhere between the two sessions the photo file changed. I've yet to figure out how to open the ones that say they are PCD files.

    I'm using the factory P2v+ camera and it's never been crashed or changed.

    Anyone else have this problem or can shed some light on the issue?

    Thanks.

    Your phantom can only generate two file types for stills - DNG & JPG.
    If you have it set to shoot jpg, that is what it will create.
    Your Phantom doesn't generate any pcd files.

    Someone needs to tell my bird that then! I've tried opening them with GIMP, Adobe Photoshop, and various other programs but they won't even load them.

    It also does it to the video files. It'll work for awhile but then changes and I can't open them but they still show as mp4 files. I just have to delete the ones that I can't open. There's data there because each file is around 2mb in size, the same as the jpeg's.
