Video files on Micro SD card sometimes not complete...

Hi all,

Finally I got to fly my Inspire-1 properly for the first time today and it is absolutely fantastic!
I have, however, found an issue with the video files.

Twice, now, I have discovered that the last video file is not complete when it is saved to the MicroSD card. This means that it is unreadable. I did 3 flights of about 15 minutes and filmed them all. There were 2 files for each flight, presumably because the max allowable size is reached and a new file created. But as you can see for the last one in this 3 flight session, it has no details.


This file is unreadable in anything. If I open it in VLC for example, it shows a total time of 0.00 minutes, and ot won't play.

Does anyone know what might be going on? Am I shutting down too quickly or something?


I get that as well. The last file is always unreadable when I take the microSD card into one of my computers. I suspect they are not closing the file properly. Strangely, reinserting the card into the Inspire seems to resolve it. I don't know if the firmware performs a file system check on power up, but the file becomes playable after that.

I'm going to try that... But because I MOVED all the files from the SD to my HDD now, when I copy them back I shouldn't be too surprised if it doesn't work this time.
