How to Format a Memory Card for Moultrie I-40


The Moultrie Game Spy I-40 is a trail camera. With the I-40, you can strap the unit to a tree or sturdy object in the woods and the motion-detection feature will automatically take a snapshot of anything that passes in front of the camera. Though the I-40's manual doesn't specify instructions specifically for formatting memory cards, the company's website states that any time you erase all of your card's photos from the I-40, it automatically formats the card to work in that camera. The GameSpy I-40 uses SD Cards with up to 4GB of storage space.

Things You'll Need

  • SD memory card

Proper Setup

  • Turn your I-4O on to erase the pictures stored on the device's internal memory before installing your SD card. The manual specifies internal images must be erased before using an SD card in the I-40.

  • Select "Setup" and "Erase All Images." Press the camera's "Select" button then press the "Up," "Yes" and "Setup" buttons. Wait while the I-40 deletes all internal images.

  • Turn your I-4O off and insert your SD card into the camera's SD card slot. With the camera facing you, the slot is on the right side of the I-40.

Formatting SD Cards

  • Turn your I-40 on with the SD card inserted into its slot. Use the "Up" and "Down" arrow keys to select "Setup" and hit "Select."

  • Navigate to "Erase all images" and press "Select." Press either the "Up" or "Down" arrow to change the value from "No" to "Yes.'

  • Press "Select" to erase the images on your SD card. Doing this automatically formats the card for use in the Game Spy I-40.
