    Hi all,

    I can't seem to transfer my files over to my laptop from my Mavic. I am trying to transfer them directly from my Mavic to my macbook.

    I have had some success before but after like an hour of waiting. I get this message when I try.

    It would be a lot easier and faster if you pull the SD card, put it in an adapter and copy directly.

    Do you think that would eliminate my issue all together?

    If Mavic connection is USB 2 then you're in for a wait, as that'll be your bottleneck. Direct card reading to the computer is where it is at as Meta4 says.

    Yes ... that is the normal way to get photos and videos from a Phantom or Mavic.
    It's fast and easy, messing around with the cable isn't.

    Sweeto Burrito! Thanks for the help guys. I'll try it out when I can get an adapter on my hands. Any particular one to steer clear of or are they all the same?

    Ebay has thousands and will only cost small change. Just look for one that handles USB 3.0

    i think u cant pull the files out because you didnt format it in the macbook? could be the different formats that is causing the issue. anyway just pull out the SD card. its way faster

    Found an old card reader from my go pro. Works perfectly. Thanks for the heads up.

    Now To figure out photo and video settings. Anyone have a lead, link, or tip?

    If you still want to do it the "directly from the Mavic way", than try it with a shorter USB cable.

    It might work.
