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.
