    I have two wildgame cameras. I have learned that sometimes pulling cards when I put the card in it will sometimes turn off. So I have to touch the power button to make sure it is on. Also they don’t work well with 16gb card it hit and miss. I always use smaller ones. Like. 4 or 8. Any larger then 16 it never works.

    I bought one of the little square green Primo's last year....($28 at Walmart) Put it on a tractor crossing at a creek... It took 5-10 pics. This year I moved it to another spot and zilch, nothing, Swapped batteries etc and it wont' work. Has hung on a tree for less then three weeks in two years. Batteries were removed when not on the tree

    I have a couple of those that have died as well.
    It's hit or miss but I have had some card problems. I always switch cards or card sizes to see if it helps.
    Some cards just don't act right.

    I have a primos camera and the sd card had to be formatted before it would work. Try to get the original directions and it shows you how to set up the sd card. Might help.

    You get what you pay for. They are pretty junky in my opinion. I have one and only got it because it was dirt cheap. I’ll stick with Browning.
