I have an Apeman trail cam which worked last year. This year I'm getting nothing. I swapped out memory cards but nothing. A sticker on the camera says memory card must be formatted by MENU setting, but I don't see how to do that. Any advice welcome.

I always format my cards with the camera. It usually says something like photos/images and then you select delete all.
Also I’ve had a camera quit working and had to do a factory reset or download new firmware update for it.

Should be an option on the cam menu setup, toggle through and loom for format yes/no. I’ve got 3 diff brands and they all have it🤷🏻‍♂️

Some cam menus refer to it as simply "delete sd" instead of format. Does the same thing as far as I can tell. This is different from SD card management (deleting old pics if it is full)
