Question about HP PhotoSmart M627 Digital Camera

Open Question

Gutted!!! M627-566 "unable to display image"

Got engaged whilst on hols and took around 300 pics, 150 of which have easily uploaded onto my laptop. Unfrotunately, the remaining 150 I get the above message. To give you a bit of background whilst taking them it seems sporadic and temperamental, I might be able to view 2 then not the next 3, view the next 6 but not the next 8.

Followed the HP website solution; tired uploading to different PC, putting the memory card directly into my scanner but still can't access these 150 photos. Called them just now after they didn't respond to my email request for support and although empathetic, have been told there is nothing that they can do. I shall be seeking a better replacement of course but does anyone know of ANY way I can get these emotionally important pics back?

Try using a differend USB cable. Sounds like the cable you are using is damaged.

SOURCE: Memory Card locked

Hi-
There is a difference between delete and format.
Use the camera controls/menu options to FORMAT the card.
The only thing that would interfere with this is if you accidentally moved the switch position on the card to locked position. Check that to make sure that did not happen by mistake.

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

Try switching the USB settings on the camera from digital camera to disc mode. You should be able to copy the pictures and videos from windows explorer.

Upload pictures onto laptop- way too big


This is a 12.1MP camera...if you have it set to take pictures that large, then the files will be huge...too big for the internet. You have to downsize them first...that's perfectly normal. You could set the camera to take lower quality pics, but if you come across one you would like to enlarge, it won't turn out very well. Why not continue the procedure you now use if it's working for you.

Only 18 out of 300 images are shown on my laptop. HELP!


The first assumption is that you can see all 300 pics on you camera.  If this is correct, then they must be in one of two places:
- in the camera memory
- on the memory card.
The next assumption is that you are connecting the camera direct to your laptop.  So:
Take out the SD card and see if the pics are still on the camera.  From what you say, they should not be.
If they ARE NOT - then get a card reader.  Get one anyway, they are always useful. Now plug the card reader in, put the SD card into the reader, and now look at it.  You don't say what laptop, or what operating system, so it has to be whatever you would normally use to look for files.  See if there are any extra folders that could be holding your pics.
If the pics ARE still on camera, then maybe the card write-protect switch is set to read only.  If this is the case, get another card, format it in the camera, and copy the pics onto the new card. Now put that into the card-reader, and see what folder and file structure you have.
Your camera only has 16mb of internal storage and that is not a lot. Maybe only 40 low quality JPEG files. So if you can see all 300 or so, they should be on the card and not the camera. If the laptop file system cannot find them, them maybe the H-P software can.  Three folders does not sound a lot for 18 pics unless they are high quality JPEGs.
My guess is that they are on the card, and the camera to PC link is not picking up the card.

File contains no image data


If you format, you will lose everything...format means erase and optimize. Take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. It will usually read all the pics on a card and you can make a cd of them on the machine.

How do I upload from Fuji FinePix software to facebook


What model of camera is it? If its a SLR like the one pictured, you might have shot the pictures in RAW format. You will need to convert them to a JPEG to upload to Facespace.

In most photo management programs you should have the ability to choose where you put the images when you connect the card for download to your PC. You should be able to right click on an image and there might be a 'Show me Location on Computer' option. This will tell you were it is located in your file structure.

Need to put Pictures from Camera onto Memory Card


Hi there. Here is how you do it. Go into the menu and navigate to the Copy screen. Choose an option. One is to copy pictures from the camera's internal memory to the SD card, and the other is copy from the SD card to the camera's internal memory. Then press OK. On the next screen, you have two option choices, either copy all images, or selected images. Hope that helps.

Memory card error is common problems in various sd cards and cf cards. I took a closer look at my little SD memory card. It has a sliding lock on it to protect data. Check to see if the card works when you slide that lock up or down. Read more about memory card:
