Game/Trail cam problem

    I just bought a Bushnell 5.0 mega pixel trail camera, with night vision, from Wal-Mart. Paid $150

    It says will take up to a 1GB SD card.

    Here's the kicker, WM doesn't even sell 1GB SD cards, and all the ones I saw said SDHC or some other combinations of letters. I have a 2GB SD card in my regular digi camera so I stuck that in.

    Took 10 pictures last night and this afternoon, they are all screwed up. I uploaded them and you can sortof tell what's night and day, but the images have big screwed up lines across them and they won't enlarge to regular picture sizes (says "drawing failed")

    IS this because the SD card is "too big" ?????

    Does anyone else have this cam, what card to you use in it?? And where did you get it??

    Coz if I knew the memory card was gonna be so complicated! [​IMG] .... I'm seriously considering returning this thing, because as it stands it's useless to me.

    Well, I took the cam back to WM. I don't need to have $150 invested in a camera that I can't use.

    I'm very disappointed!!

    Get a moultrie I-40 takes great pics,battery life is great and doesn't break the bank.Sells around by me for 160.00 - 170.00. I've got all kinds from cuddeback to game spies and for the money moultrie has been the best. Even works in sub zero temps. Got pics of a sow bear and four cubs last week and four different wolves. Needless to say the deer population is suffering in northern WI. If I knew how to work these computers better I would post pics. Mike
