I have recently purchased several trail cams and getting ready to put them out. They all say that they are rated for up to a 32 GB SD card. I spoke with a rep at Browning that said that the camera is only capable of reading 32 GB, and if I put something bigger in, it won't increase storage above the original 32 GB.

Up to 32GB, all the cards are SDHC, but above 32 GB, the cards are SDXC format. The 32GB cards are formatted in FAT32, whereas the SDXC cards are formatted in exFat.

If I reformat a 64 GB card to FAT32, should/could I have the use of all 64 GB, or will I still be limited to 32GB based on the camera. I have both Browning & Wildgame Innovations, and neither customer support dept has been able to provide a satisfactory answer.

I am not positive but I believe all the camera will see is the 32Gb.

You spoke with the rep from Browning and he says it won't work. If you think that it might, then try it and see, at most you may waste a card. That's the only way to find out for sure.

They will only support the 32GB. I speak from experience.

He didn't give me a strong feeling like he knew what he was talking about on this particular subject, that's why I posed the question here. Thanks for the responses

Worst case, stick the card in, format it on the device. You will then know how much it can store.

I you can successfully reformat a 64GB SDXC card as FAT32 you will have a 32 GB SDHC card. Can you do it? Maybe, maybe not, as it depends on whatever device you use for formatting being actually capable of dealing with the SDXC card.

Wow, nice purchase, I also bought one trail cam last week. it is my first. And I am completely satisfied with the quality of the images it takes. And that is not the most expensive camera in the market, but it is the best for its money in my opinion. I found it when I read many hunting gear reviews and found there Stealth Cam C42 No-Glo. No-Glo functionality means that it doesn’t emit any infrared lights that might alert the game and spoil the shot. So animals do not scare of it.

Well actually you won't "waste" a card, you can probably use it in another device that can use a larger capacity card. Some devices can be finicky when it comes to size and card "speed" capability. This is what is can use in my GoPro 7, much larger than my stealthcam.
MICROSD CARDSYou’ll need a microSD™ card (sold separately) to save your videos and photos. Use a brand name card that fits these requirements:• microSD, microSDHC™, or microSDXC™• Class 10 or UHS-I rating• Capacity up to 256GB
