Default SD card question

Today I went to put out a couple of trail cams and had picked up couple of brand new SD cards but when i inserted them in one of the cams I kept getting a card error message

Buddy took one he had out of a trail cam and it worked fine

Do I need to format these cards before using them, guess when Admiral sticks them all in her camera they get formatted.

Only thing I can think of being wrong

Both cards were brand new out of the pack

Put them in a computer and format them first. My trail cam has a menu option to format yours might too.

I use a NT50

I have two of the Moultrie trail cams and looked through the instructions and menu and did not see a format listing anywhere

Thanks, figured that was what I did wrong

I tried that in my laptop and get all the way to the point of formatting them and get a message that I can not format them

Bought a Go Pro camera and sent it back because it really wasn't what I wanted but I kept the 16GB card that I ordered with it. I wanted to use it in our Nikon D50. I tried it and got an error. It is a SDHC card which the Nikon apparently doesn't support. Is yours a regular SD or is it a SDHC? I am totally ignorant when it comes to this and agree with Just1more's comment about loving modern technology.

That's a possibility. Another is that some devices won't read the high capacity cards. If both of the cards you bought are the same capacity, that's not the problem. If the one that doesn't work is a higher capacity, it may be.

Yep, check the specs of the camera for capacity and type of card. There in lies the problem.

HC means high capacity and might not be readable by your machines.
