Largest capacity MicroSD card the Mavic Pro can use?

#1

Hi
May have been asked previously, but what is the largest capacity micro sd card can the Mavic Pro take. I am currently using a sandisk 64gb extreme pro, but wanted to see if I can put something bigger in it.

As far as i am aware (i may be wrong)

But i think 64gb is the limit for the MP

Has anyone tried Huawei Pro plus cards, they are U3 and seem relatively cheap

That’s from the manuel for the MP

I’ve used a 128 to check it works … but I see no benefit.
You have to change batteries way before you can fill up a card … so why not change the card and make sure you don’t lose what you’ve already recorded?
I have several 64s - and they rarely get to half full.

That’s always been my thoughts as well. Got a stack of 32GB cards.

Think I’ll need to rethink that strategy doing hyperlapse on M2P though.

Ok thanks, changing the card when changing the battery sounds a good idea, thanks for that.

Thanks @raider64 and @callum

Have you checked to see if it writes over 64GB on the 128GB card?

I know it was happily reporting the correct time remaining that could be recorded.
I seem to recall my attempt to record the full capacity was interrupted by a failed cooling fan after just a couple of minutes.
It was correctly formatted by the MP for the full capacity.

Yes - I looked back - the failing fan was the reason I never completed that test. I’ll do it again and complete it.

OK - loaded up a new Temp subfolder in the root of a 128Gb card so that there was only 2GB remaining … and the MP happily recorded into the remaining space - reporting the remaining space correctly.

Thanks for confirming :+1:

I’ve just formatted, but I’ll leave it in and not re-format until it’s getting really full again, to double check. But I can’t see it will be any different.

I’ve read all the answers… as others have said 128GB is compatible.

I prefer using 2x 128gb personally… why?

  • Less fiddly onsite, changing in the field = risk of loss
  • More wear and tear
  • Less chance of a full card wen you go out :slight_smile:

?

That’s as much 4k as you can record with 15 batteries!

I’ll give you a prize if you manage to fill a 64Gb in one normal day.

But the fact that a 64GB lasts anyone more than all day means that all 3 of your previous arguments are invalid. :wink:

But - that is a good price. But I already have 3 … and don’t (normally) use them in the MP.
I have about 12 x 64Gb … “kicking about” … a bulk purchase in Italy when my “media backup” (aka laptop) died on me … 5 weeks into a 3 month driving/camping holiday.

Fair comment about 64gb lasting a day, but you reminded of me of 2 more reasons to go large

  1. I assign a card each to drone, gopro, osmo pocket, and try not to mix up, more cards would do my head in

  2. I’m lazy :joy:
