Question about HP Photosmart M417 Digital Camera
Hello - my recently purchased HP m417 camera will take photos with its internal 16 MB memory but when I put in a brand new 1 Gig Viking SD card it says CARD NOT SUPPORTED ... when I switch it to another 1 Gig SD card that I took from my working m417 HP Photosmart camera I get the same message ... CARD NOT SUPPORTED ... both cards work in my other working HP Photosmart m417 camera ... is there a fix for this recently purchased unit? - thanks - Hal
Did you try putting the card in the camera, and using the camera's "format" card option?(Make sure there is nothing on the the card-a format will delete it.) Often times, a digital camera requires a format of the card so the proper file/directory structure can be created. If the card is empty, you have nothing to lose.

I own an older version , M307. 1 gB SD works fine. in your case, there must be a problem with the interface (contact prblem). I agree with jackboy that there is no point trying for a smaller capacity card.

It is strange that cards work with one M417 and not the other. I at first thought- card too large- but this appears not to be so. Do you have access to a smaller card just to prove the point? This does seem to be a fault - suggest you return it under warranty or at lest speak to HP tech support.
