Your camera can't Please don't try to put any SD card in your camera. It will destroy the camera. You camera only accepts xD cards. It is a complete different card size and works different.
There are xD micro drives, but I would not buy them. it is a very small HD and are not made for years. So if you find one, it is likely it is defect.
But if you can find a 1 Gb xD card, you can put lots and lots of pictures on it.
run diagnostic test and cover sensors with thumb...may have to shade IR flash array to see it glow red...menu may start countdown...if flash doesn't glow you will get a 020000 error(flash/flash charging error).To fix you need to remove batteries,sd card,rubber plug from remote slot, 5 screws from face;lift out face and turn over. Remove 4 screws, keeping separate from other screws, from camera card and carefully unplug (3 plugin connectors) and carefully lift camera card out..no soldering required up to now..2 conductors,a red and a black, connect to the flash array at one corner...these go to the sensors on the face,slightly under main board...either the sensors are bad or the array is bad...getting replacements is the problem unless you can get them...I buy "as is" cams off eBay.
This is can be due to sensor damage or memory card damage.
Card damage (maybe repairable).
This is common with Flash memory that has been used extensively for a long time and this problem is likely not caused by any fault in the camera. To check whether the damage is on the card or on the camera, copy a good picture from your computer and check it a few days later with a COMPUTER. If the lines appear on them too, you can say that the card is damaged. If you want to try to use the card again, You can try formatting it (method differs from cam to cam, check instructions manual for specific instructions) If this doesn't work, You will have to buy a new card. Make sure you buy a good brand like Lexar or SanDisk.
Sensor damage (unlikely to be repairable):
If you pointed the cam directly at something very bright like the sun (for taking pictures of an eclipse for instance), some parts of the sensor will get burnt. In this case you will get oddly colored dots all over the pics in the same places.
Parallel lines are consistent with other kinds of sensor damage like because of water.
I'm afraid that you might not be able to find someone to repair this cam; it's not a professional DSLR camera. which means repairs to it can cost more than buying a new camera will!
I had the same problem. Your memory card likely has too much memory. I put in a 4G card and it would not take a photo. Every time the camera went off it said "Error - Card Full".
You have 2 options.
1.) You can remove the memory card and use the internal memory to take photos (it will only hold 20 pics) and transfer them onto the memory card by shutting the camera off, inserting the card, turning the camera on, wait for the menu to clear and then shutting the camera off again and removing the card. This does work, but you are limited in the number and quality of photos that you will get.
2.) Get a smaller capacity memory card. I went out and bought a 2G card. Funny thing is that the camera wouldn't even recognize it at first. When I turned the camera on a message saying "Please wait" kept flashing on the screen. I waited 10 minutes and just shut it off and pulled the card again. I took the card home and formatted it on my PC. When I put it in the camera the next time it worked fine. So to save you some trouble, buy a smaller card and FORMAT it on your computer before trying it in the camera. It will save you a headache. After all of that BS I finally got the stupid thing to work. It takes beautiful pics but I will not be buying another Cuddeback. My next trail cam will be a different brand for sure. Not worth the hassle IMO.
..according to Moultrie, you MUST send it in with a VALIED receipt and $25 and they will reprogram it...NO EXCEPTIONS. I am also looking for a way around this; bought two used cheap with this prob. And of course my receipt is not from an authorized dealer.
