SOLVED: DJI Mavic Air 2 Won’t Show Up When Connected To Computer

The best way to get footage of your Mavic Air 2 is to use a MicroSD card in the drone, and then simply remove the card and plug it into a card reader. While this is ideal, I recently ran into a problem. I had filled my Mavic’s MicroSD card and immediately the drone switched to recording additional footage and photos onto the 8GB of built-in memory.
