I bought a 4gb memory (Sony) card. I t shows unsupported when turned on , is it compatable?

The M415 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and won't work with the camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

ew. you might consider getting a new camera if the 256 mb sd card was standard for your camera.

cameras nowadays are advancing at a break neck speed, and if you get a replacement for what you paid for the hp photosmart m415, I can assure that you will have less compatibility issues and more capacity for pictures and videos with sound, resolution, etc.

I know it is tough to part with old technologies, but when it comes to cameras it pays to update.

HP Photosmart M415 the memory card is full and I

You have a) got to remove some pictures on it
b) if you have lots on it but dont want to delete any, buy another card.
c)if you think you should be able to get much more on it, then you need to copy off anything you want to keep (onto a pc or cd) and then use the camera to 'format' the card. Sometimes images and videos can be using space after you have deleted them, and this is the only way to get it all back.

    Unsupported card

    Hi - You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

    See page 166:


    Also try formatting the card in the camera as cards that have been used in other cameras or formatted on a PC may not work correctly until formatted in the camera.

    Use the camera settings to reformat the card first. Then, if that doesn't correct the problem, it may be that the card is at fault.
