Then it is a pretty good bet that the SD card is not fast enough. Try a Sandisk Extreme card.

Have you tried to format the micro sd card, through the app.

There are two places in the app, to do this.

Yeah I’ve tried all ways I’ve read online. It’s a class 10 card with 90 bits per second. I’ll try another brand.

So when you put the SD card in the computer it doesn't show in the root directory? At a guess I'd say it sounds like a dud but you could try formatting the card in another device such as camera, dash cam etc. that should confirm card at least formats. Then try wiping the card, re-insert etc and hopefully all should be good. If all else fails get a couple of 32Gb and try them. Extra cards won't go astray. As Geebax suggest SanDisk are reliable.

If the computer or card reader is a little outdated you might not be able to read a modern high spec card.
If I was in your shoes I'd try a newer external reader.

Then it very well may not work if you record say, 4K at 60 fps.

Just reported the same issue. I'd love to hear what you find out. I've tried SanDisk Extreme 128G, SanDisk Extreme 64G, and SanDisk Extreme 32G. All with the same results you've been experiencing.

Why not use the SD card that came with the Phantom?
