Re: card will not format

I suggest you call the Hp technichan and they can help you. Im currently on the phone with them and they ask you alot of info but they could possibly upgrade your camera.

Re: card will not format

Place the card in a card reader, attach via USB to your 
computer and transfer anything you want to save to the
PC. Then delete everything from the card and re-insert
in the camera. You should now be able to format the
card, provided it's within the capacity limit of the camera
which is 2GB.

Card has wrong format

Not a solution, but after corresponding with HP customer service, they concluded that the problem with my M527 (see above) cannot be fixed. They offered to replace it with the same two-year old model for $99.99 which is much more than that model camera would be worth. I declined their offer.

Card will not format

memory card? and SD card? whatever the card hook your camera to a usb to computer and find it under "my computer"

look at all your drives you should have like c, d , e, f, g, h, select the last drive and see if it finds your card if so try formatting it through the computer, whatever you do dont select c or d to format. if problem persists buy a new SD. I find good deals on ebay or Walmart.

Card Format

the card may have become corrupt, try carefully cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and try again,or try formatting it using a card reader, but you may have to replace the card.
