    I have unistalled and reinstalled the drivers on the computer. I have downloaded and updated the drivers on the camera. I have reinstalled the programing for my jumpdrive. I can plug in my writing tablet and it works just fine. I can plug in my boyfriend's Cannon 40D camera and it will load pictures. I have tried to run it in safe mode as well. My computer did not come with a systems disc.

    I went ahead and clicked yes to format both devices. It not only erases everything on the memory stick/jumpdrive, but the grey message of death comes up stating it is not able to format the device.. I am ready to pull out my hair..Thanks for the suggestions

    have you installed all neccesary drivers for your laptop? like chipset driver, usb drivers etc...

    right click desktop >> click properties >> hardware >> device manager.

    check if you have some missing drivers found. and let us know.

When putting the memory card into the slot, the screen reads 'memory card error'. Also, will not read the camera when plugged into USB socket. Please Help!


Hi there,
The camera port only supports USB-equipped digital cameras that support Pict-Bridge. If you attach a USB device that is not compactible digital camera (or Bluetooth adaptor) to the camera port, an error message appears on the color graphics display. If you have an older HP-brand digital camera, try using the USB that came with the camera. PLug it into the USB port on the back of the HP-all-in-one and not into the camera port near the memory card slots, This works with HP digital cameras only.
By default, Windows XP will format a memory card of 8 MB or less and 64 MB more with the FAT32 format, Digital cameras and other devices use the FAT (FAT 16 or FAT 12) format and cannot operate with a FAT32 formatted card. Either format your memory card in your camera or select FAT format to format your memory card in a Windows XP PC.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

Need help formatting PLEASEE!!!!


Hello,

 

This is Vikram Kumar Thumu from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to the Error message stating that Wrong Format. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue.  I hope that this should work and will resolve the issue for  you.

 

 

If this is exact error message then try :

 

"CARD HAS WRONG FORMAT. Press OK to format card. " 

 

Possible cause is : The memory card is formatted for a different device such as an MP3 player.

 

Solution : Reformat the memory card (remove the card from the camera if you do not want it to be reformatted).

 

I hope that this should resolve the issue.

 

If the issue still persists then you can take help of HP Chat Support.

 

For your convienience, I'll provide the link for you.

 

Hmm, this is the link to visit HP chat Support for  your Camera

 

link is :

Message states unable to format


Make sure you dont have Rhapsody, or Windows Media Player open. Go to My Computer>Device Name (e260)>Right Click and select FORMAT. If that doesnt work, change the mode on the device Settings>Mode or USB Mode and repeat. Best of Luck.

Uploading images to laptop


By default, Windows uses a 32bit FAT when formatting which is NOT compatible with most cameras. I'd suggest sticking to using the camera menus for formatting a card, unless the camera can't format one (then, if you must use a PC for formatting, make SURE you select FAT as the File System Type). I'd also recommending formatting again with the camera menus before using a card if you ever do need to format one with a PC. As for your problem with the laptop seeing the card, it could be any number of things. It's more likely related to the USB drivers. Many users report intermittent problems with USB connectivity after upgrading to SP2. A frequent solution that sometimes works is removing all devices drivers related to USB (My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager). Then, rebooting and letting Windows find and reinstall the drivers again. Sometimes, updating these drivers can work, too. You may also be seeing a conflict between other USB devices and drivers. For example, sometimes HP Printer Monitor software conflicts with USB connectivity to other devices. You may also want to try a different USB Port. If all else fails, consider a Card Reader (they're very inexpensive now -- you can probably pick up a USB 2.0 card reader for around $20.00 locally). With a laptop, you may also want to consider a PCMCIA based reader.

The camera screen displays error message


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. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
