I'm having the exact same problem. Anyone have any advice.I have and additional question. I have an Inspire Pro that just came back from DJI for repairs. The aircraft and the controllers are up to date but I am getting a prompt that the batteries need to be up dated. This makes sense since DJI had the aircraft and the controllers and presumably brought them up to date at their repair center. They did not have the batteries so I am now attempting to update them. I have done this in the past with no problem. However, after downloading the latest firmware from the DJI site and attempting the firmware update via the sd card, apparently the .bin file is not being recognized and no battery update is completed. I can understand it skipping the aircraft and/or camera updates if they are current but why is it not recognizing and updating the battery? Any ideas?
The SD card is needed because it must contain the firmware (the battery module of the code) in order to update.From what DJI just told me on the phone you dont need to do anything but plug the battery into the bird and it will auto update the firmware or prompt you to do so, so why would you need the SD card? (Not debating but just confused as to what to do)
Yup - redownload and unzip and put it back in the root directory of the SD card.So what do you suggest if i dont have the original firmware file any longer, i could have sworn when i set this up and upgraded the firmware the DJI how to video told me to delete the BIN file from the card so i did. Easy as redownloading the BIN file and putting it back on the card?
You can leave you videos/pics on the card and just drop the .bin firmware file in the root directory.Ok perfect, so very last question, what if i just leave the current SD card thats in my bird now in place, it has videos and pics on it, will it prompt me to insert a card with the firmware or will it mess something up if i dont have the card in place with the firmware?
Thanks a bunch!
