Question about HP Photosmart M527 Digital Camera
It always shows "Card Has Wrong Format" and "Press OK to format card". When I press ok, It says "Unable to format". Any idea?
Try plugging the camera into your computer. Under my computer the camera should pop up as a new drive. Right click and choose format. If you have a card reader built into your computer you can simply plug the card into that and do the same thing. Either way you do it, that may help. Your card has been corrupted and the camera can not fix it. Windows may be able to fix it instead, it may not though. In the end you may have to purchase a whole new memory card for the camera. They can become corrupted and sometimes they get corrupted in a way that the device itself can't fix. I had a Multimedia Card get corrupted in my cell phone and the phone couldn't format it, nor could windows. Luckily there was a program for another type of cell phone that worked on mine that fixed it by doing a low level format of the card. This option isn't available to you on a camera, so you're somewhat limited in the ways you can repair the memory card. Peter
