Joe, let me see if I understood you correctly. The Moultrie digital camera shoots and stores photos on a SD Card. However, it does not have a LCD to show the photos it captured.

You want to take the SD Card out of the Moultrie digital camera, place the SD Card in another digital camera, such as your Concord 3340Z digital camera, and view the photos.

This is possible if both digital cameras conforms to the DCF, a standard for storing digital camera photos. First find out if your Moultrie digital camera conforms to this standard. The easiest way is to:

1. Format the SD Card (to start fresh).
2. Shoot a few photos with the Moultrie digital camera.
3. Take the SD Card out of the Moultrie digital camera.
4. Insert the SD Card into your computer.
5. Look at the SD Card content with Windows Explorer.

You should see a "DCIM" directory as shown in the screen capture below. Under it, there should be another directory similarly named as "101_PANA". If so, then your Moultrie digital camera conforms to the DCF standard.

If your Concord 3340Z can't display photos from that card, then you might need a different digital camera.

If you have trouble figuring out whether the Moultrie digital camera supports the DCF standard, you can perform the steps I mentioned above on a small SD Card. Mail me the SD Card in an envelope with a self-addressed and stamped return envelop. I'll try it on a variety of different digital cameras that I own and let you know if any of them works with it. E-mail me if you are interested in doing that.

i have a moultrie camera, and its format is compatible with an old Kodak Easy Share camera I have. also, Ive seen Samsungs and other camera types work with them as well. So instead of spending $50 on a useless Moultrie Viewer, Id recommend buying a camera for slightly more that you can essentially use as your camera picture viewer.

my kodak is a DX4530. Take some pictures with your Moultrie, take the SD card out, and go to walmart, best buy, etc, and start putting your SD card into a camera until you find one it works with.

I tried using an older EasyShare as well to view my husband's game camera pics, but they wouldn't pull up. Instead it said Invalid Format. However, just purchased a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS and I can view the game camera pics on it. I agree with the previous comment. Try out your card at an electronics store, but write down the camera info. once you find one that works. You can usually find a better price online. Also, Kodak has been offering trade in money if you send them an old camera for one of their new ones. Check out their site and made sure you find one that accepts the SD cards! Good luck. I love my new camera, bought it on QVC but later found it cheaper online. My bad. :(
