I bought a new 2G SD card and my HP407 says card is unformattted. I try reformatting with switch in locked and unlocked positions. I select trash can then format card. It shows an amber light as if formatting then returns No image on the card. I then try to take a photo and unit reports card full.

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
Take the memory card out of the camera. Move the lock switch on the side of the card to the unlocked position if it is in the locked position. Replace the card carefully without moving that switch.The unlocked position on most SD cards puts the switch towards the end of the card that goes into the camera first.
If that doesn't help, try a different card. The card you are using may have a problem that could require formatting. Copy your photos to another drive first. (Use a drive/photo recovery program on your computer (with the card in an SD card reader). There are some that will attempt to read even a corrupted SD card.) Then reformat the card. If the card can't be reformatted, it may have failed. Check your warranty on the card and see if it will be replaced by the manufacturer.
Hi, i have here a photo that will show you on how to remove write protect on a micro SD. 1. You need to insert your micro SD into an adapter. 2. Unlock the micro SD through your adapter as shown below. 3. Once done, your micro SD is no longer write protected.
NOTE: The lock switch doesn't lock the micro SD into the adapter; The lock switch doesn't lock the data on the micro SD; The lock switch simply tells the "user" not to write. It just says "please, don't write me." I hope this helps.
SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
If it is an SD memory card, there is a switch actually on the edge of the card. Try moving it to the other position and reinstall. Most people don't realise it's even there untill they have problems.
If this works , please rate accordingly so others may follow.
If it doesn't, there will be access to view the locked photo's on the camera. Selecting protect/ lock again should remove this.
To my knowledge unfortunately, there is no way to unlock without the password. The only information I can share is to have it reformatted. If formatting could not be performed likewise (due to password restrictions), pls try using a memory card reader attached to a PC and running HP USB Utility (cp006049.exe).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
