In general, you can. There is a standard that the camera
manufacturers use for the directory structure on
the card.

Of course, it's always possible that someone somewhere
doesn't follow the standard....

One thing to watch out for -- particularly if the two cameras are from
the same manufacturer -- the file number from one camera may be
used by the second camera.

For instance, one camera has taken 100 pictures, and the next one
will be something like DSCN100.jpg

The second camera has take 500 pictures, and the next one will
be something like DSCN501.jpg.

If you put a card with the DSCN500.jpg in the 100 picture camera,
it's next frame will be DSCN501.jpg, and it will keep it's bump its
internal counter to that value.

I did this with a Powershot S20 and S40.
