Two questions.... How do I format the SD card in the mavic pro? Second is can I earse the files on the sd card without reformatting? My card was full, I took it out of the Mavic, copies the files onto my hard drive then deleted the files. When I put the card back into the Mavic, I got an error reading indicating the card was full.

Connect to aircraft with DJIGO app. Press the settings button immediately beneath the shutter release/Video button on the screen.Select rightmost of three tabs. Second last item. Format SD card.
Dunno what your second Q is exactly. But don't delete files on the SD card using your computer. Format it in the aircraft from now on and you should not see that error.

Once I formatted the SD card in the Mavic I can no longer delete the content on it using my computer.  The option is greyed out.  I have just been downloading the content to my computer and then reformatting the card in the Mavic.  If there is another way to delete the stuff I would be interested.

Above post answers your first question.
2nd question, are you using a PC or Mac, if deleting the files on a Mac empty the trash too.
But doesn't really matter as your first question would take care of that.

Perfect and thanks to all who replied. I would just add one more thing... Select rightmost of the tree tabs. Scroll down to the second last item. Needed to scroll down to find it as it was not visible at first. Formatted the card with no problem, again thanks.

Tried different formats, exfat, fat32 with different size allocation units. They all worked. Flying with fat32 4096 allocation right now.

Have always formatted the card from my Mavic AND P3P on my PC after transferring files. Have never had ANY issues.

Yep - always format the Micro SD card within the app - a quicker route is to bring up the aircraft status menu, scroll to the bottom and tap format next to 'remaining SD card capacity'. Also, the Ultra version of the Sandisk range has a much slower MB/S than the extreme which DJI ship with all of their drones now. If after formatting using the app you still get this error then consider upgrading the card to a faster read/write speed.

When I upgrade to a 64gb SD card for my Mavic Pro I formatted it on my computer first and then I created the same file directories on it that came on my original 16gb SD card from the manufacture.  It works fine however when I formatted it I used fat32 instead of fat32ex so the largest file I can record at one time is 4gb.

General SD or microSD card advice is: Always format card in device that is going to do the recording (writing of data).
Record some videos and pictures, then see if devices you want to use for reading can read the recorded data.

Deleting files using drag-n-drop from SD or microSD card with a Mac; requires deleting files, emptying the Trashcan, waiting till empty completes, then software ejecting card, before physically removing card.
Otherwise the Deleted files are left on SD or microSD card in hidden form.

On Mac you can do 'Option + Command + Delete' to bypass Trashcan, and do a permanent delete.  
On some Mac OSs you can do a permanent delete using  "Delete Immediately" under File option of Finder.

I dunno... I've formatted the SD card in my MP from the AC and from the PC at times.  Never had a problem with either one.  The AC handles both ways with no problems
