This is possible. If it's an older camera newer higher capacity memory cards (SDHC, SDXC) might not work due to file system being exFAT instead of FAT32 I belive. But if your camera is rated for 32GB capacities then that might not be the problem as it's probably rated for at least SDHC. It's possible it won't accept SDXC cards though.

I have tried all three formats types. They are correctly formatted to fit the cameras, and they work on the computer. I have read that the maximum amount of memory for a camera is only 32 GB. Maybe that's why my 125 GB won't work in the camera. It works on my son's phone just fine. Any other suggestions?

Ah so I assumed these were used in the camera before, makes sense now. Nope, there's nothing you can do besides buy a higher end and/or newer camera that supports more memory. Good luck

Have you tried formatting them in the camera?
Are they a size the camera does not support?

Yes, we've tried three cameras and a phone. None of them can format it.
