    Guys, have a look at the video below, not seen this before could it be the SD Card at fault? Also had a couple of clips from the same shoot not playing (or even opening) at all. It's not a new card but it's probably the first time its been in the P3, which I formatted (via DJI Go app) before flying.

    Any idea's

    Dave

    It could be a bad memory card. Try swapping it out.

    Card appears to be OK but it's writing speed seems to be low.

    Cheers guys, gonna try it again next time I fly. Have used an identical card before though in the P3 without issue so might just be this one...If it does it again I'll chuck it out.

    It is a Class 10 (SanDisk Ultra) not the fastest writing card.

    Quick update, put the card back in the P3 and it stated it was full (it wasn't) formatted it, still said full. Took it out and back in the Mac and then put it back in the P3. Said it was full again but after reformatting (again) it's not saying full and is allowing me to record (just testing on desk)

    Sound like a card problem/error? Perhaps didnt format properly?

    Make sure the write protect is not on.
