I used the Compact Flash reader on the printer to transfer some photos. Removed the card when done and now I get a "Memory Card Error" and flashing amber light. Reset power, pulled plug, rebooted computer. yelled threateningly.... nothing clears the error!
Checked for bent pins on the Smart Flash socket but every thing seems fine.

Re: HP PSC 1610 All-In-One - Memory card Error
Pulling out the card without using the 'Safely remove Hardware feature' risks corrupting data on the card.
Reformat the card in the camera.
Also with compact flash it is a simple matter to wreck the some of the tiny pins in the card slot.
Check out both these and come back

You need to import the photos to your PC to view them. There are two
ways to do so: connecting a camera directly to the computer via USB
(Universal Serial Bus) cable and by using a flash memory reader. Using
the flash memory reader is considered the fastest method to transfer
images. Some of the popular types of flash memory card readers are
Secure Digital (SD), Compact Flash (CF), Memory Stick (MS), Multimedia
Card (MMC) and Smart Media (SM). Here is how you can use the reader to
view photos from your digital camera.
The HP all-in-one has detected an error with the memory card.
1. More than one memory card is inserted in the HP all-in-one.
2. An incompatible camera is connected through the camera port.
3. A memory card is inserted and a digital camera is connected at the same time.
Remove and reinsert the memory card. It may be inserted incorrectly. If the problem continues, the memory card may be defective.
Remove one of the memory cards. Only one memory card can be used at a time.
Check the user guide that came with the camera to see if it supports PictBridge. If it does not, try using the cable that came with the camera to connect the camera to the USB port on the back of the HP all-in-one instead of to the HP all-in-one camera port. If the camera does support PictBridge, make sure the camera is set to PictBridge mode. See the user guide that came with the camera for instructions on how to do this. Remove the memory card or disconnect the camera. Only one can be used at a time.
You might try the following - Reformat the memory card in the camera or format the memory card in a Windows XP computer by selecting the FAT format. Hope this helps!
Try a full NVM reset on the unit and check
Reset Steps are.
Unplug the power cord from the unit when there is still power in the All-In-One and press and hold the # and No 9 Button without releasing the buttons plugg the power cable back, it should come up with a message as reset
If the screen go's blank after you connect power cable, then release the keys and turn the power On, it will come up with a message as Full NVM Reset
There is no way to do that since the internal memory is designed to only output to cards, not the other way around. Fortunately, this should not be a problem.
In general, the best way to transfer photos to your computer is to use a card reader - it provides a standard interface that the computer will recognize, it saves wear and tear on the camera, and it saves batteries.
I use Meritline.com for things like this because they are cheap and reliable, but please don't think there aren't hundreds of other places to get one from.
To help you, here is a link to the page at Meritline that lists card readers. Note that many have free shipping:
This is a relatively cheap one with free shipping that will handle just about any card form factor except compact flash:
