FAQ's

Will my device work with the BuckStruck Card Reader?

Please take a look at our full compatibility list here

 

So how does this actually work?  

It reads directly off the card in the trail cam. Just remove the card and read it from your Android device with the Buckstruck card reader!

How do I scroll through pictures?

You can scroll through pictures (instead of selecting them one by one) by copying files to the internal memory of your device.  This is a limitation of the Android operating system and not the BuckStruck Card reader.

How do you get the card reader to work on an HTC One?

The HTC phones have a very specific requirement. > Download the recommended File Manager App
- Insert SD Card into BuckStruck & connect BuckStruck to phone
- Open "Settings" & select "Storage"
- Tap on "Mount USB Storage" & Wait for content info to appear
- Open "File Manager (File Transfer)" app
- Select "USB Storage" from menu --> Open "DCIM" folder & View Pictures

 

Can you delete pictures on the SD card?

Yes. Just use the file manager app to do so.  You can delete multiple pictures by "long clicking" (holding your finger down for about 2 seconds on a single file) and then selecting the checkbox next to other pictures to delete in bulk.

 

Can I copy and save pictures/videos from the SD card to my device (phone/tabet/etc)?

Yes.  Using the file manager, "long click" a single file and then selecting the checkbox next to other files you can choose to "copy" (usually in the top right corner) these to your devices internal memory. We often copy the photos to our phone, then clear the card, and put it back in the trail camera - saving us a trip to the woods!

Droid 2 / Droid 2 Turbo - what are the special apps needed?

These devices require the "Nexus Photo Viewer" available for free in the google play store.

How do I share photos from my trail cam with others?

After connecting your SD card to your device, you can select the file and then choose the option to "share" in mulitple methods.  We like sharing ours in text messages and other social media platforms like facebook.

Will this work with iPhone?

No.  It is designed for Android devices only.
