DJI and Drone Recovery

How to recover deleted DJI videos from SD card

CnW Recovery are aware that many DJI and other drone users have problems recovering deleted videos from the Phantom, Mavic, Spark and other cameras. The DJI cameras record both low and high resolution streams at the same time, in effect interleaving them on the memory chip. When deleted, the FAT is cleared down, and all fragment locations are lost. CnW have developed tools to process this data and are starting to apply these tools to DJI cameras as well as GoPro. Many cameras do already work, but others with high resolution video are being developed now (July 2020).

Currently, GPR will
read cameras with DJI AVC video (H264) and support for DJI HVC (H265) video.

Recovery process for DJI videos

The actual process for recovering DJI videos is very simple, and described below.
Download the program and connect SD memory chip to the PC.
2) Run the program and select <<Recover>>.
3) Wait and see the results
4) Purchase a licence to decode the recovered videos

If you have a DJI memory chip you cannot process and the current version of GPR does not support, please contact us. You can send us an image of the memory chip. A solution may be just a few days way for fully working video. The cost if successful, will not exceed that of a licence, $22.95. Contact us at
