Camera says "establishing connection" when trying to transfer

Hello-I am trying to transfer pictures from my HP Photosmart M425 camera. I have done this many times before with no problem, but now the camera screen says "establishing connection" but never does. Can anyone help? Thank you so much!

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

SOURCE: can't unlock my camera card on hp photosmart M425

if we are talking about an sd card, on the opposite side to the 'cut' corner is a small piece that slides away from the contacts to lock, slide this away from where it says lock if this is the case, but make sure it wasn't protected to save something important before use, This may have caught on something as you slid the card in, and it's only tiny!

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

SOURCE: HP Photosmart M425, "Card Lock" message, camera

Take the memory card out of your camera. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

I want to transfer pictures from my computer onto my memory card in my PhotoSmart M425 camera to then put on my digital photo frame. How can I do this?


Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer. The card will then appear to your computer as another hard drive. You can transfer pictures to the card the same way you normally transfer any other type of file.

Consider getting a card reader instead. You should be able to pick one up at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store for less money than a USB cable.


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.

"establishing connection..." not connecting


I suspect the problem lies with the HP software on your computer. You can download the HP Photosmart software from www.hp.com. Look for Software & Driver Downloads for R707 camera. You can still transfer your photos by setting USB Configuration in your camera, to Disk Drive in the Setup Menu.

Help with camera?


Do you have a pc with an SD card reader on it? If you do, you can insert the card into that slot and it will act as a removeable drive. You can find it in My Computer under removeable drives.
When you connect the camera to the pc, it will become a removeable drive. Just transfer from one drive to the other.

Let me know if I can be of anymore help, and thanks for coming to FixYa. If you would, rate my solution a fixya.
