Any SD card will be sufficient enough. The higher the GB the more pics and video you can gather on them. The only tough thing is to just get your camera programmed with the time/date and settings. If you don't have any instructions it may be very difficult. Good Luck and welcome to the DHC.

Be advised that not every SD-based digital camera can handle "any" SD card. Some can only take up-to-1GB, or some can use 2 GB or higher. You really need the documentation or else it is trial and error. Most these days can take at least 2GB cards, which are plentiful and cheap.

Good info, I know my older Cuddeback can only take up to a 2GB card, the newer Moultrie goes to either 32 or 64 GB.

Typically if you go with a SD card that is 2GB that is more than enough. I also recommend that if your computer (which you'll be viewing your pics on) is an older one, you may want to stay away from SDHC cards. The HC stands for High Capacity. Some older computer won't read them correctly and it can lead to ALOT of frustration- I know, been there. SD cards work just as well as the HC ones,,, don't know what all the hoopla is about- a bunch of 10 y/o nerds sitting around making us pay more money for two extra letters.. HC

Yes and Yes.

My home computer is getting up there in age (kinda like a moderator here at the DHC- but I won't mention names). My work computer is somewhat newer...

My wife and I are talking about getting a laptop maybe this Christmas. I love being able to sit wherever you want (and I mean WHEREVER! :lol:) and log on to the WORLD WIDE WEB!

With the SD cards,,,, are you talking about when you pull the card and put into your computer,, it's giving your problems,, or when you put it in the camera? I've been having trouble with my actual cards as well when I try to delete pics. It says they are protected and that I cannot delete them.

It is when I put it in the Camera not the PC if I do get it to accept the cards when it goes into sleep mode it will not pick up the card again

GFD- or anyone else who may know- how come all of a sudden my SD cards when I plug them into my computer tells me that they need to be formatted? I've been told to NOT do this b/c it will erase all the pics on the card. How did they work one time and now not able to work. Another problem I'm having is that when I go to delete the pics off the SD card, it won't let me. WHY THE HECK NOT?!?! <--- sorry that's what I yell at the computer! The geniouses that made SD cards are such wonderful people. I have not changed a SINGLE THING with what I've always done.

HELP PLEASE!
