Bought my son's wife a bushnell binocular. Take a picture, connect to pc's usb, upload fine. Put in 2 Gig sandisk sd, take a picture, connect to pc's usb, says the binocular's disk is unformatted. Format the disk. Copy other .jpg's to and from the disk. This proves the sd is ok??? Remove from the pc. Take a picture. Connect again. Says the disk is unformatted!! Tried a different sd, same results. Are only some sd's compatible with the bushnell? Which ones? Or do i have a defective bushnell?
The Bushnell website says model 11-8321 cannot use an SD card larger than 512MB. (Look under Customer Service, ImageView FAQs.) That's the bottom line. Period.
Problem is unit will not work with an SD disk over 512MB. For some reason if the SD Card is 1GB or larger you will receive the message the card needs formatting. Verified this after many hours of trying to get 1 and 2GB cards to work. Used 512MB cards or less and the camera works perfectly. Originally got this info from a tech support facility that does support for Bushnell.
I had the same problem too using a 1GB , I also had a 256MB and it works in the Bushnell Binocular. Thanks to the other senders with solutions. I am just verifying it does have a problem with a card 1Gb & larger & a smaller card fixes the problem.
