This article and the included YouTube video are a step-by-step tutorial walking through inserting, ejecting, and formatting the micro-SD card for both the Mini 4 Pro drone and the DJ RC 2.

Inserting the Micro-SD Card (Mini 4 Pro)

As DJI drones progress and improve over time, they can accommodate larger-capacity SD cards.

It wasn’t too long ago when many DJI drones could only read cards that had a 64 GB maximum. The Mini 4 Pro can store photos and videos on SD cards up to 512 GB.

To insert these larger capacity cards into the Mini 4 Pro:

STEP 1: Make sure the Mini 4 Pro is powered off.

While holding the Mini 4 Pro in one hand, carefully insert the SD card into the Mini 4 Pro SD card slot with the gold pin set pointed up (towards you).

Do not push the card in all the way just yet, as it will most likely fly out across the room.

STEP 2: While the SD card is in the slot, using your fingernail at a slight angle, push the SD card in until it makes an audible “click.”

Because the SD card slot is spring loaded, if you don’t press the SD card in with a nail at a slight angle, your finger could slip, causing the card to eject and fly away from you.

Inserting the Micro-SD Card (DJI RC 2)

If you own the combo with the DJI RC 2, you’ll see that there is an SD card slot in the remote controller as well.

The SD card on the DJI RC 2 is currently used for storing screenshots and screen recording clips. Time will tell if DJI adds more items that can be saved to the SD card.

To insert an SD card into the DJI RC 2:

STEP 1: With the DJI RC 2 powered off, partially insert the SD card into the DJI RC 2 SD card slot, this time with the gold pin set pointed down or away from you.

STEP 2: Push the SD card in until it makes an audible “click.”

Formatting the Micro-SD Card (Mini 4 Pro)

The process for formatting SD cards that are in the Mini 4 Pro is done within the DJI Fly App, whether you have a DJI RC 2 or the RC-N2 remote controller.

To format the SD card, after powering on both the Mini 4 Pro and your current RC:

STEP 1: While in the DJI Fly app, go into your settings and locate the CAMERA tab.

To format the DJI RC 2’s SD card:

STEP 1: Pull down the DJI RC 2’s notification screen by double-swiping down.

Ejecting the Micro-SD Card

Ejecting the SD card from either the Mini 4 Pro or DJI RC 2 is handled the same.

Caution must be exercised when removing either SD card, as a finger slip can cause the SD card to force-eject unexpectedly.

To eject either the Mini 4 Pro or DJI RC 2 SD card:

  • STEP 1: Using a thumbnail, at a slight angle, push the SD card in and then slowly remove your thumb.
  • STEP 2: Carefully pull the SD card out.

Tip: If you have larger fingers or find it difficult to remove the SD card, simply attach a piece of scotch tape to the end of the SD card, effectively creating a tab to pull the SD card out.
