Re: sd card problem on photosmart m627

It may be the camera is only compatible with memory up 1 Gig or the card is no good. Return it for another and if it's the same problem then it's only compatible with 1 gigs or less.

Re: sd card problem on photosmart m627

Have you updated the firmware for the camera? The update is available on the HP website and is relatively easy to do.

The M627 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

SDHC Card 4 GB SanDisk will not format. get

The Z740 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards will physically fit into the card slot but are not compatible. It's a hardware incompatibility, not updatable in firmware. You'll have to stay with 2GB and smaller SD cards.

Make sure the SD card is unlocked. There's a tiny switch on the side. Put it into the camera. Under storage, when you select the card, also select format.
