I have several older Bushnell and Cabellas cameras which are out year round. i am having and issue where i have to remove and insert the memory cards several times before they register on the camera. This happens even with new memory cards.
I suspect the contacts on the cameras may be dirty. Is there any way to clean them.

Thanks for any help.

Maybe pull the batteries for a couple of hours and use spray electronic contact cleaner.

what I found always works for me...

lay the SD card on a table upside down, contacts showing.

Use a pencil with eraser to "erase" them carefully.

blow all the debris away. it seems to clean them up every time for me.
