Question about HP Photosmart M415 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No pictures I took quite a few pictures without realizing that the memory card was missing. The pics showed up fine until I went to download them, now there are only 2 out of about 50. This has happened in the past and they randomly show up eventually but I really need the pictures now. I don't know how to access the internal memory. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

    I know how to download pictures, they are not showing up on the camera when I try to do this...it has something to do with the internal memory. This has happened before and they will show up randomly when downloading another batch someday - the problem is I need them now.

Have you checked the HP hep site?
Here is their suggestion
Introduction This document explains how to transfer images from the camera to a computer running Windows XP operating system by using a universal serial bus (USB) cable. Transferring the images Follow the steps below to transfer images from the camera to a Windows XP computer. Step one: Connect the camera to the computer

  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. The camera came with a special USB cable for connecting the camera to a computer. Connect the large end of that USB cable to the computer. Figure 1: Connect the USB cable No pictures - c00878070.gif
  3. Open the rubber door on the side of the camera and connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the camera.
Step two: Transfer the images Choose one of the following methods to transfer the image files: Method one: Transfer images with the HP Photosmart software
  1. Make sure the HP Photosmart software is installed on the computer. If the software is loaded, then go to step 2. If the software is not loaded, click here to upgrade to the latest version of imaging and printing software (in English).
  2. If images on the camera are selected for printing or selected for HP Instant Share destinations, make sure the computer is connected to a printer and the Internet.
  3. Turn on the camera. The HP Import Photos software starts on your computer. If you have set the software to automatically transfer the images in the camera, the images automatically transfer to the computer. Otherwise, in the Transfer images from Camera/Card screen, click Start Transfer . The images are transferred to the computer, and then if there are any still images that were previously selected for HP Instant Share destinations, those actions are started.
  4. When the Image Action Summary screen appears on the computer, you can disconnect the camera from the computer.
Method two: Transfer images without the HP Photosmart software If you do not, or cannot, install HP Photosmart Software on your computer, you can still transfer images from the camera to the computer using the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) in Windows XP. Follow the steps below to transfer images.
  1. Turn on the camera. Windows will automatically launch a program to transfer the images.
  2. When the images have finished transferring, disconnect the camera from the computer.
  3. If you encounter problems, check that the camera USB Configuration in the Setup Menu is set to Digital Camera .

    2. Scroll to the Setup Menuc00595863.gif using the left/right arrow c00280208.gif buttons.

If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.

Card Error


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for.

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're very inexpensive.

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

Cant find previously review pic


The internal memory is very small and wouldn't hold very many pictures. Try using a separate card reader to download your pics to your computer.

The only solution left is to get a card reader and insert the card in the card reader.

when the card is detected it will show a removeable drive in My Computer. Right click on the removeable drive and click on properties....now click on the the tab which says Tools......now under error checking click on Check Now......now click both the option that is Automatically fix the system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.

After the scan is complete the card will work fine.

Will not take pics


It's elementary, but I want to mention to make sure you have a memory card in the camera. The camera will not turn on without a memory card.

I've done it myself several times and it scared the **** out of me, until I realized I had left the card out. One time I had to walk about a quarter-mile back to my card to get one after I had done this.

Lost pictures????


It sounds like your memory card is corrupt. This most important thing is not to use the card any further until you have recovered your pictures. Unfortunately i see from the date of your post that this may not be the case. What you need is some memory card picture recovery software. There are several shareware programs available for download. Try googling it. Good luck!

Faulty Memory Card


Sounds like the file allocation table on the card got screwed up. Try Googling Compact Flash Data Recovery. I know you're not using compact flash cards but the techniques for data recovery are pretty much the same regardless of the media. If and when you're able to recover what you can, I wouldn't use that card anymore myself. Good luck!
