Default SCOUT GUARD 550 SD Card ???

What SD card works the best in this trail camera? I was told by HCO that my SD card is the problem, so I bought another and still have the same issues.
I'm using SanDisk SD card. I also formatted the cards. I guess I can try to reformat them again and see what happens.
I explained my camera issue in a previous thread with no comments. hope you can help me out. Thanks

I have never used one of those trailcameras. I do use SD cards. I can not think of but one question,is the SD card new or used that you are trying to use?

One is new and one is used. Both have been reformatted before I put the camera out and the used card was empty before I put it in. I ended up with the same results with both cards. The used card i got about 43 pictures before I started to have problems.

The problem may be with the camera if you have not had any pictures after those pictures.

I believe it was in this thread... http://www.hunting.net/forum/tm.aspx?m=2882026where I read that Kingston is the preferred SD card to use with the Scoutguard camera. Anyway, it's what I use and I haven't had any problems.

The cards I mainly use is the kingston 2GB and the PNY 2GB. Supposedly this cam is supposed to accept all SC card but I tend to stick with what works. In the past I have seen some issues with the Sandsk for reasons I cant figure out, but it was several folks that had these issues with that card. Do you have any old cards layin around? A 256mb or anykind to verify? Maybe borrow someones card if you dont have? Just so you dont spend anymore money than you have to..........

I've used all types with success. The only brand I have had problems with are sandisc, but it would be odd to have 2 cause trouble. Try a kingston and see if that solves the problem.
