I was downloading the hi-res content to my PC today, and noticed two new file types, namely .THM and .SCR.
They come in pairs, as in there will be DJI_0005.thm file AND DJI_0005.SCR file, THM being about 5-12K, and SCR file being different size ranging from 40K to 400K.
I figured SCR is some sort of image or video, and THM is its thumbnail (sizes of THM files are proportional to the respective SCR ones), but neither Windows 10, nor Adobe (latest PS CC/ACR) know how to handle either of them.
Are they usable at all? What software can I use to open them?
Thank you!

Hi there, I appreciate your time bringing this query to us. Regarding your concern, .THM is a thumbnail file and .SCR file type is primarily associated with 'Script'. The .THM file is not needed for anything. You can safely format your card before each flight and start with a clean empty card. Should you have further question, please don't hesitate to reach us. Thank you.

Thank you @Natalia. I guess I could have figured that out myself, since the primary files are video files. But now I know for sure

DJI Natalia is actually wrong Both of the files are just JPEG thumbnails with a different extension:


As you can see the .thm has a slightly better resolution than .scr.

Does anyone really knows what .SRC and .THM files are ?
In my Mavic 2 Pro .SRC files are biger (~500/700 Ko) than .THM files (~50/70 Ko)

I think it's about flight data but not sure at all...

They are "screen" and "thumbnail" images. Ignore them.
