Camera cards are never to be formatted on the computer....only in the camera. "card error" usually always means you need to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics you want to save first.

My hp photosmart r707 gives me a message (card is unreadable) i have inserted a new card and i get the same message each time.

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.

Installed new cf card in camera. message on camera

The card may be too high a capacity for the camera to understand, or it may need formatting. The camera will have a function for formatting the card. Some cameras claim that you need to use their own format rather than format in a computer in order for the camera to work properly with the card.

Most Kodak cameras only allow you to use up to 2gig memory cards. When I was on holiday I bought a 4gig for myself and I was told after that it would not work on it. I tried formating it everything but nothing works.

"For" Message

The camera is telling you to format the card. You can do this in the cameras playback menu. That should take care of the problem.

The camera screen displays error message

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
