I have a Moultrie D-IR55 camera. Sometimes it takes good pictures, but on other times it takes a picture and then makes it look like a jigsaw puzzle with the pieces shuffled around. I have another identical camera and it has no problems. The only difference is that one camera is on single shots every 1 minute and the one that is having problems is on multi-shots every 15 seconds. Please advise.
