DatCon process error (csvView)

Currently using Mavic 2 Pro with a fully updated version (yes we all have been through with this firmware issue = downloading DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic worked)

I am trying to use DatCon, ExtractDJI, and CSVview.My goal is to extract GPS location of the drone video in PC viewable formats such as cvs or txt.
This is because I only have videos for my research, no still images (images with GPS coordinates).


Below are the steps that I am using.
Please correct me if I am doing anything wrong.

1. Use "DJI Assistant 2" - "Log export" to download DAT file to my PC (windows)
2. Use "Extract DJI" the original DAT file (I am assuming since this is compressed DAT file)
   *If I use the original DAT file on"DatCon" directly, it gives me an error: XXX.DAT is not an acceptable .DAT file becuase Created by DJI Assistant 2
3. From the extraction, I get 3 different DAT files such as DFLY021, FLY017, GIMBAL021 (what are the differences?)

4. Use these 3 DAT files on "DatCon" to produce CSV files, which failed.
   * Every time I run, it gives me Error: CRC Error Ratio was 100.00%
5. Then I try it on "CSVView" and of course it gives me more errors: Internal Error: Can't create the .csv or Internal Error

So I am pretty much lost here.
Please pull me out from this sinkhole.

Video captions option will record these details to a text file with the same name as the mp4.

Any idea how to open the fight logs that the app uploads to DJI,  they appear to be a zip file but dont want to open.  Although airdata have figured it out.

The Mavic Air and Mavic 2 aircraft .DAT files are likely encrypted and can not be processed by either DatCon or CsvView

The Mavic 2 and Mavic Air .DAT log files are encrypted and can't be processed by DatCon. However, the .DAT log file produced by the Go App are not encrypted. Look here to see how to retrieve the tablet .DAT file

what the...then what is the purpose of even having this DAT file?
So pretty much my only hope is to use SRT file form the captions?

If you only want to get the video GPS data, this info is stored in your flightrecord.txt wich is saved in your mobile device.
