8.1. Read and convert files on SD card in PC

If you do not want or cannot the files from the SD card in the camera, there is also the option to insert the SD card into the PC and save the files on the PC.

Since the files are in .avx format and cannot be played with standard players, it makes sense to convert them to .mp4.

To do this, you can use this tool:

https://hikam.de/dl/mp4Tool.zip

Unzip the files and start mp4Tool.exe with a double click.

Under 1, select the directory where the .avx files are currently located.

Under two, choose the directory where you want the converted .mp4 files to go.
