Hello,

I was trying to use DJIExtract to extract flight logs into FLYxxx.DAT, but not successful. Any idea on this? Its only shows "extracting... ", but there no actual file in my output folder. Btw, im using Phantom 4 Pro.

Thanks

You need to be a bit more specific on the process you are using. Step by step.

@Fly Dawg is right. We'll need more to go on. What version?

Does "extracting... ", mean something like this

Extracting: FLYXXX.DAT Length: nnnnnnnnn ....................

If so, then that FLYXXX.DAT should be in the Output Dir

Hello, here's what i have done so far:

1) Exported logs from drones internal memory
2) File saved as: EXPORT_FILE_2019-07-18_16-02-06.DAT
3) Run ExtractDJI from DatCon (3.6.6)
4) Select saved .DAT
5) Mode is default (Extract DATs only)
6) Click GO! button
7) Results:
112938


After extracting, there is no extracted FLYXXX.DAT in output folder

Looks like there wasn't any FLYxxx.DATs within the EXPORT_FILE_2019-07-18_16-02-06.DAT file.You can check the contents of the EXPORT_FILE_2019-07-18_16-02-06.DAT file by selecting List Contents

Should see something like this

DJI Assistant 2 wasn't given the right specs when you told it to create the EXTRACTxxxx.DAT file. There are several different versions of DJI Assistant 2 now so I can't offer any more specific advice.

I have tried these options:

1) List Contents
112954


But there are no data in output folder

2) But when i use 'Extract All", I have these files from black box. How can i use this data?

Btw, i have used several DJI Assistant apps, but still get the same results

- DJI Assistant 2 v1.2.5
- DJI Assistant 2 For Phantom v2.0.7

AFAIK there is no way to use this data.

I'm gonna guess that you told DJI Assistant 2 to extract the black box data? If so, this isn't the correct option. Try these instructions
