Question about HP Photosmart M415 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory Card When I first used a memory card, I purchased a SanDisk 5122mb and took approx. 130 pictures. These pics printed great, then the camera started to give me and error of Unsupported Card and dropped some of the pictures already take and would not allow me to take any more. I purchased a new card (same as first) - same message. Both cards were formatted before use. Please help!!!?

    correction: memory card used is SanDisk 512mb

  • mikesbark Jan 04, 2008

    I am having the same problem with my HP Photosmart M415 camera. It had been working fine for two years with a SanDisk 512MB SD card then this week the camera displays "Unsupported Card" when it is turned on. I have tried other SD cards and get the same message. I have also tried formating the SD card both in the camera and on a computer but the camera still displays "Unsupported Card".

    I have no USB cord, I lost it when I finally bought a SD Lexar 2 GB memory card.Stupid mistake, I know.

    So its been working fine for maybe the last year and a half.
    Out of no where it just started to say Unsupported Card.

Try taking the SD card out then plug the camera into the p.c then format the internal memory.

How do I clear the memory so I can take more pictures I can only take about 22 pictures and I have a 1GB sandisk card, then it says my memory is full

You can connect your camera to your PC or laptop. then transfer all your pics to anyone of it. After that you can delete all the pics from the camera memory card. hence providing you with a full 1GB free space to click as many pics you want to.

Please respond back if this does not resolve your problem.

Have a great day.

Pictures stored on card, and unable to retreive them on camera

Have you tried accessing the pictures via a card reader connected to your PC. It is possible the card is damaged and you will not be able to recover your pics. But it is worth a try. If you do not have a card reader take the card to a camera shop and see if they can see and manipulate the pics to another card, then reformat the card and reinsert it to see if it then reads anmd writes.

Take the memory stick out of the camera then connect to the computer. You can then transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer.
Alternatively, use the camera's copy command to copy the pictures from the internal memory to the memory stick.

Stops taking pictures after approx. 128-130

Hi, Sue,
Not really sure on this, but if where he bought cam will take it back,try it...
However, it may not be the cam, but different resolution settings on the two different cams. Digital cams by different manufacturers format SD cards using different means; some allow more memory space on card for formatting than others..and if the game cam is set at a higher resolution than the other cam, then the 2nd cam might use space 1st cam left avail.i.e., say cam "sets aside 4mb of memory to format card, but only uses 2mb of this space. Now, the game cam is set for high resolution and take 130 pics @ 15mb each..15x130=1950mb,+ 2mb left by game cam=1952mb(1.952gb), or about 50mb of space left on card...put it into cam set for lower res. and might get several more pics before card was really sure all is equal...both cams, and card,ect. 128-130 pics @ high resolution ain't bad....on a 4gb SDHC card with my I-40's set for High Res., I can get 1000 pics;@ enhanced and I get only about 300. Set at low res., and # goes way up.Hope you understand all this.

Take without a memory card

No, the A420 does not have internal memory. The card that came with the camera is only intended to allow you to try the camera to make sure it works. You should really purchase a new SD card. New ones these days are literally capable of holding hundreds if not thousands of pictures, and cost less than $7. Here's an example:

I took about 200 pictures and they were suddenly deleted off my camera. i thought they were accidentally deleted. i took about 40 more pics and it said my memory card was full so i know they're still there...

get a memory card reader and try to download pics from card to comp-then open and click any folders you see related to memory card-card will show up as a new drive letter in my computer-pics may be in different folder and still be there-if you can't find pics at all go to and get recovery software to see if you can still retrive them

Memory card for Olympus FE270

The larger the image, the more space it consumes, your new camera is producing files that are twice as large as the old one did. Buy a larger memory card, they are quite inexpensive these days.

2 GB memory card for digital camera

The number of pictures that a memory card will store will depend completely on the file size of each picture. 750 pictures on a 2gb memory card would be around 2.5mb average each picture, which is more than adequate for basic shots - with a higher resolution the picture size can easily exceed this. Here is the link for the user manual for your camera; Check page 20 - explains how to change the picture taking settings including the resolution/ file size. Also check page 53 - it explains the storage capacity of different memory cards at different resolutions. The manual suggests that the camera can only deal with a maximum card size of 512Mb, so it is possible that although a 2Gb card appears to work, the camera can only utilize the first 512Mb of the card. Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)
