    Hello All,

    I flew the mavic for the first time today and for some reason, I am not able to download the videos from the Mavic into my Iphone or Macbook Pro. The videos are 4k, so they cannot be imported directly into the iphone using the DJI Go App. So I connected the drone to my Macbook Pro, but I am not able to see the sd card in the connected media and I am not able to find a way to download them via the DJI assistant 2 app on the mac. I would really appreciate if someone has a workaround.
    (In the meanwhile, I have switched the video setting to 1080 to allow me to download to the phone directly)

    Thanks!

    What Alex said - in addition even if you could download directly by plugging into the Mavic, it is almost always MUCH faster when using a card adapter directly into the SD card slot on your computer.

    I plugged the mavic directly to my Mac using the usb cable, but it was not recognized as media.

    I reckon you have to get the micro SD to USB adaptor, your local PC shop will have them, maybe don't persist in trying direct download...

    USB card readers are cheap and provide a much faster transfer rate than the Mavic does. Some would argue inserting and removing the SD card from the Mavic just increases your exposure to a fault in the card slot, but I did it this way with my P3 300 times or so without issue. Just use due caution when changing the card and you will be fine. You might need a micro SD to SD adapter if you don't have one.

    Did you power up the Mavic? Once you do this the card storage should be recognized. Worked for me in Windows anyways.

    Anyone compare transfer rates via Mavik direct to PC vs an adapter?
    With the Mavik plugged directly into my PC (USB 3.0) I was impressed with the speed. Don't have the adapter compare at the moment, but it seemed on par with adapters I have used for other media in the past.
