I bought a SanDisk 4 GB and my HP photosmart M627 will not format the memory card

The M627 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is an SDHC card and will not work with this camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Some how the set up for my hp 733 camera got erased from my computer and i can't find my what do i do? thank you

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Will a SD 2gb memory card work in my hp 620 digital camera?

Yes, any Secure Digital (SD) memory card can be put into your hp Photosmart 620 camera safely. I would not go any bigger than 4 GB due to the limitations of some computers that you may use to download and process your photographs. And, you probably will want to pull off the phototgraphs and put them onto your computer for long term storage or for printing. That camera normally makes about a 1 Mb file for a JPEG image file. It will take a long time for you to fill up a 2 GB card; around 2,000 photographs.

    Can't format 2 GB sd card for HP 735 camera

    Make sure the SD card is unlocked. There's a tiny switch on the side. Put it into the camera. Under storage, when you select the card, also select format.
