Question about HP Photosmart M22 Digital Camera
I recently switched to rechargable batteries in my camera and now i cannot format my 512mb sd memory card. are the batteries too high in voltage? i went a got a replacement card at staples and it still does the same thing. as soon as i turn the camera on it asks to format the card and as soon as i press ok it acts like it will but then goes right back to please format card. this is highly frustrating because i am used to taking multiple pics and videos which without the card i cannot do. any solutions?
Rechargeable batteries voltage actually are lower than normal batteries, but is high when freshly charged or still hot after charging. don't use newly charged or hot battery, wait at least five minutes or let the batt cools down first. some model and brand uses compatible rechargeable batt, it is different from those sold individually which i think you are using. it has special switch activator attachment have you tried to switch back to alkaline? how about formatting the card in pc? try removing then reinserting the card for several times. this will clean the card contact point in camera.
