Have HP Photsmart R707 which won't read card, won't format card and won't accept it even after being reformatted on my computer. Have tried cards that work in my other HP Photosmart camera. I even bought a new battery since the charge wasn't holding very long. Is there something wrong with the camera itself?

Even after you did format these cards in the PC, you better chose to format the cards in the camera you want to use it.
And if you have checked the cards on the memory card, please also check the contacts in the camera.
Just use a bright light, and a magnifying glass. If you are not a technician, please don't try to adjust the contacts in your camera, because in the end it could be possible your camera can't be repaired by a real technician.
Firstly Sorry for my bad English. I was the same problem. I try a lots of thinks. Then I only push the card in to the camera and hold it there (in it) while I'm pressing the card I command to format it. It's ok. It can format it.But It's my hp r707's problem maybe its not usefull for you. trueagle
SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with
the SDHC (high capacity) cards. Some cameras have a capacity limit, and
won't work with cards that are too large (in memory terms).
One thing you could try is formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try, then there may be an issue with the connectors in the card slot or the card may be incompatible. However, I would expect the camera to report that the card needed formatting rather than that it was unreadable, if formatting was the only problem.
That is what formatting does. It reorganises the memory in to an ordered and useable format and in doing so all files will be lost.
Fuji, Canon, HP and other digital cameras do not like being used with memory expansions if they are not reformatted every time the pictures have filled the memory card or you choose to download them. Its like the memory is still allocated to something even though you cant see it. So a good practice is to reformat after every download. If the problem persists then try another card and if this still gives an error then you will have to get the camera serviced.
This has happened to my wife's camera twice now. The solution (I think this is the fix) is to take the card out of the camera and then turn it back on without the card in the camera. Doing this will access the camera's internal memory and at this point you should delete any/all/some of the pictures that you find. After deleting some pics from the camera then take a picture. Now turn the camera off and replace the card. Power on the camera and either format the card or just start taking pictures again. I formatted the this last time since I had already moved the pictures to the P.C. and saved them. Give this a try. It's worked for me and it's free.
