I'm using my drone with iPhone and iPad.  

Is there way to access the drone photo/video files from DJI Go 4 app off an external drive ... ?  So that I do not have to copy first the files I want to say, edit, to iPhone/iPad and then edit them...    If that makes sense:  on a Windows based PC/laptop, I can say use an external drive pretty much same from any app , just open file & use - no extra coping to internal storage / memory.

If not DJI Go 4 app, any other iPhone / iPad based Video editing app that can use external drive / storage?   Say if do some videos on weekend, and may be have 20 - 30 gig, I don't feel like first backting them up to external stoage, then copying them to iPhone or iPad (which may just not have enough storage free .... ).

Hi. Thank you for reaching out to DJI Forum. With regards to to this query. There are different ways on how to transfer files. First, is by connecting the drone directly to the computer. Next, is by connecting the SD card to the card reader and connecting it to the computer. Finally, by downloading it through the DJI Go 4 while the mobile device is connected to the remote controller that is connected to the said drone. Thank you.

HI DJI Paladin,

Thanks for your reply with the information.

However, I think you misunderstood me :   I'm not asking how to transfer data files, but what is , if there is, the way to work with the video (and photo) files that are already copied over to some back-up storage - like external harddrive .

With iPhone / iPad,  I only see that you have to first 1) connect SD card to the iPhone/iPad, then 2) Import the files to the library, which seems _must_ be on the internal storage of the device (iPhone/iPad).   This last step (2) defeats the purpose for me of backing them all up on external storage..

So what is the 'best' app , if there is,  for iPhone  / iPad to edit the DJI drone video files, straight off the external storage?   (i..e, again, without first copying them / importing to the internal storage of the device).
