    Puttting the SD card from the Phantom into my computer card reader doesn't seem to read the card. Can you only read the card from the slot on the Phantom camera?

    No, a card reader should see it.

    Yea I have used the same card from camera to Phantom to my Dewalt inspection camera to my Zoom audio recorder. Nothing special about it.

    If you don't stop the video properly it will not be able to open it. Try putting the card back in the Phantom and power cycling it and try it again.

    Some SD to micro SD card adapters are flaky too. I have had a couple I ended up tossing as it was hard to get them to seat properly and read.
