Card format may be incompatible with reader or card may be too large for reader to manage. Try another card in the reader to see if it will read that one. If so you know the card is the problem not the reader.

  1. Remove the memory card from the camera.
  2. Locate the memory card slot on the product that is compatible with your memory card. Figure 1: Memory card slot locations c01331721.jpg 1 - CompactFlash (I, II) 2 - Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard (MMC), Secure MultiMedia Card 3 - xD-Picture Card 4 - Memory Stick, Magic Gate Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo (with user-supplied adapter), Memory Stick Pro 5 - Front universal serial bus (USB) port (PictBridge-enabled)
    NOTE: Some portable USB flash drives with a read-only partition, such as U3 smart drives, might be incompatible with the front mass storage port on your product. These partitions are added by the manufacturer and may include utilities and other software. Refer to the manufacturer for additional details about your drive.
  3. If it is not already on, turn the product on by pressing the power button (c01324469.gif ).
  4. Turn the memory card so that the label faces inward and the contacts face the product. Figure 2: Inserting the memory card c01335108.gif CAUTION: Inserting the memory card in any other way might damage the card and the product.
  5. Gently push the memory card into the memory card slot until it stops. The memory card does not insert all the way into the product; do not try to force it.
  6. When the memory card is inserted correctly, the status light next to the memory card slots flashes and then remains solid green. CAUTION: Never attempt to remove a memory card while it is being accessed. Doing so can damage files on the card. You can safely remove a card only when the status light next to the memory card slots is not blinking. Do not pull out a memory card while the light is flashing green.
Step two: Print the photo
  1. Press Photo Menu . A message displays on the control panel with the number of files found on the memory card.
  2. Press the right (c01185072.jpg ) and left (c01185108.jpg ) arrow buttons to browse through the photos on the memory card.
  3. When the photo number you want to print appears, press OK .
  4. After selecting the photos, press Photo Menu again.
  5. Press the right arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Number of Copies , and then press OK .
  6. Press the right arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Layout , and then press OK .
  7. Press the right arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Paper Size , and then press OK .
  8. Press the right arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Paper Type , and then press OK .
  9. Make any other appropriate changes to the settings, and then press Print Photos .

SOURCE: hp photosmart 2610 won't read my sandisk ultra memory card

Previous solution is the FAIL. Original poster says it works fine in _camera_, but not in _printer_. _Printer_ is the compatibility issue, not camera.

SOURCE: memory card error for 4GB SDHC card on HP Photosmart printer 2710

Well SD max is 2gb, so you can get 2gb if you want.

SDHC max is 32gb. If you are not on a budget, try upgrading your printer to a newer model.

SDHC is coming out with even newer models, now with a class 10 (10mb read/write speed - but very costly).

However, if it doesn't matter to you, might as well just stick with the same printer, since SD cards are coming down in price. Just make sure you get 2gb cards with a good class speed.

What's your problem?i put a 4gb memory card in my canon SD 200 and it says error why


The SD200 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in this camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Have an HP L7680 all-in-one Just received a Panasonic Limuix camera and cannot read the SDHC memory cards in the SD slot - Printer posts an error


No, it's not possible, it'll never read SDHC in the SD slot. SD slot will only read SD, Mini SD (with adaptor) and Micro SD (with Adaptor). If there's no SDHC card slot, then it doesn't support SDHC Card. The lists of supported memory card are listed below:
CompactFlash™ Type I and II,
Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard/Secure MultiMediaCard (SD),
xD-Picture Card,
Sony Memory Stick®,
MagicGate Memory Stick,
Memory Stick Duo,
Memory Stick Pro


I hope this clears your doubt.


Note: SDHC and SD are different Memory Card types.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Memory card error


Did you format the card before using it on your camera? Try using a memory card reader instead of the printer's SD card slot to transfer the video. Also check if the memory card is locked (check the position of the yellow slider at the right side of the card). If this does not work, then you will have to format the card. Unfortunately this will erase all the data in your card.

Card Locked ! Error


Remove SD card, then whilst card is removed, delete all pictures that may still be stored in cameras 'internal' memory (usually just a few) then replace SD card. Should be unlocked now?.

Problem getting HP Photosmart to recognize digital camera memory card


From what read of the specs, the C6100 does not support SDHC cards, only SD cards. SD cards top out at 2GB; what you have is technically an SDHC (High Capacity) card, which does not work in SD devices.
