Hello There

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    I bought a 4gb memory (Sony) card. I t shows unsupported when turned on , is it compatable?

    The M415 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and won't work with the camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

    I need to download pictures on my M415 camera with a 4gb card from another camera. How can I do this ?

    You can't. The M415 won't read the 4GB card.
    Your best bet is to plug the card into a card reader connected to your computer. 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.

    While cleaning out my elderly mothers house I found a Hp Photosmart M22. The memory card and batteries were missing. Otherwise it looks OK. I put in new batteries and a Lexar SDHC 4 GB memory card. It...

    The M22 won't work with your 4GB SDHC card. It only works with MMC and SD cards up to 1GB in size. Having said that, if after cleaning the battery contacts and putting in new batteries, it still doesn't work, I'd toss it and get a newer camera. Giving its age and (lack of) capabilities, it just isn't worth repairing.

    The Optio S4 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.

    I got a 4gb memory card-SanDisk and the camera says it is unreadable.i had a 512mb card and it worked fine.

    Hi Tomcat,

    this will not work.
    The HP 945 does not support 4GB cards.
    4GB (or more) are SD-HC (High Capacity). This is new format which only will be supported by newer camera models.
