I'm trying to find out where i can purchase an sd card reader cleaner.
My game cam doesn't recognize any cards i put in it. Cam does show signs of moisture penetration.

I watched that before. The old British guy.
I looked on Amazon and didn't find anything. The minute you put in card reader, it thinks you're talking about badge reader or credit card. Very little info on cleaning sd readers

This might help. I've not used the stuff, but I understand isopropyl alcohol is used for cleaning contacts of the cards themselves, so hopefully would be suitable for the card slot contacts too.

I have IPA for cleaning contacts and other stuff for more years than I can remember ... it works
If you still have problems, then it isnt the contacts ... maybe the reader circuitry itself has failed ?
