    Hey guys i did a short flight the other day turned on the video. After the flight I pulled the card from the quad and popped it in my tablet like usual to review and got "File unable to be played" what could have caused this? I've used this card numerous times before with out a problem. Any ideas? I reviewed the "Info"file and everything looked normal about 55Mb for about 4 minutes record time. Just won't play.

    Did you stop recording before pulling the card or before shutting down the Phantom?

    Now that I think about it. I may have turned the quad off with video still running.

    Try putting it back in the Phantom and then turning the Phantom back on. After a minute or two, shut down the Phantom, remove the card and check it again.
