My HP Photosmart M517 says ERROR SAVING IMAGE on a red screen after every picture I take, so its basically useless. When it used to work, it also drained batteries after just 1 to 3 pictures - both re-chargeble and regular batteries .

It depends on the rating of the batteries and how your camera is configured. More information about which configurations use the most power and how lithium holds up in those situations can be found at:
Press the flash button (just under the viewfinder) to cycle through the flash settings. Your choices are Auto Flash, Auto Flash with Red-eye Reduction, Flash On, Flash Off, and Night.
If you want to capture the screen image, you're better off using the computer operating system's screen-capture capability. This will give you the screen exactly as it is, without the distortions inherent in converting to an analog image and then converting it back to a digital image.
YOU WILL HAVE TO FORMAT THE NEW CARD AND RESET YOUR CAMERA TO FACTORY SETTINGS. If you BING the m517 it will give you all the specs. you need.

It depends on the quality of the image and the number of mega pixels at which you shoot photos. HP Photosmart M517 shoots at up to 5 mega pixels + there is an additional setting called "5MP Best". 5MP setting creates images that are around 1.5MB - 3.5 MB in size. So, assuming 2.5 MB as an average, you'll get around 52 images per 128 MB at the best possible quality. You can do the other math. However, the camera always displays an "estimate" of how many more pictures you can take.
Now if you want to increase the number of pictures you can take you should decrease the image quality. 5 MP regular might give you upto 64 images per 128 MB, 3 MP may give you uptp 128 images per 128 MB (these are all approximations that evaluated based on my experience with this camera). I suggest that you don't go below 3 MPotherwise you'll get images that look OK on screen but not good for printing.
