Does yours use the regular SD card or the micro SD that fits into a SD card? My cam uses the SD card, so I just bought a micro 32 MB card that had an SD with it. Just pull the micro card out and slip in your droid and look at the pics all you want

It appears that the Strike Force uses an SD card. Most phones and tablets use Micro SD. I know it is common for Micro SD cards to come with the larger SD adapter. You may try one of those vs. a standard SD card. You would place the Micro into the SD adapter, record from the trail cam. Then remove the SD adapter from the trailcam, remove the Micro from the SD adapter and place the micro SD directly into the phone. I have neither of these but just using a what fits what breakdown.

These things are made by so many companies that it's nearly impossible to recommend any one product.

To get you started though:

Transcend USB 2.0 OTG Card Reader, Black (TS-RDP9K)

My son has the browning cameras and a couple other types. He found a reader at Walmart that plugs into his IPhone and reads the pictures just fine. I'd think they'd have one for your Droid as well

Then the first two replies should solve your issue.

Yep, buy the 32 Gb (I assume it is the max it will use as is mine) It is a micro SD that comes with the SD adapter. Pull it out and plug directly into your phone and no problem. I do it all the time with mine. Can erase or save pics to phone as you wish. No need to spend the extra on a reader

If you buy one like I linked earlier, you don't have to take your phone apart. You just plug it into the micro usb port. That is the same port your charging cable uses.
