I bought a brand new memory card today, and the message I keep receiving is card setup, when I choose "Format", and select "yes", the message I immediately recieve is "Caution Erasing All". Then, when I select "yes", It displays "! Card Error". Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!
I was going to purchase a 1GB card but am now glad I didn't. If your card isn't bigger than 512MB, then have you tried to format it on a computer first? (Not sure you can do that, but might be worth a shot.)

Re: New Memory Card
The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb card is not compatible.
The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card.
Try to format the memmory card using a card reader and the PC this should solve your problem if not you have to replace the memmory card.
I've tried to send you a message 3 times so far today - not sure if this helps but a tech site suggested that the max capacity tested for the HP 318 was 16 MB - my card that I tried today was 8 gigabytes ..
I ordered a 16 MB card - hope it works. Good luck to both of us!
