    Card message reads "card unreadable". Have tried resetting the camera, and that did not help. Tried formatting the card. That did not work. The same message is there when I use a new card, as well as a card that already has hundreds of pictures on it.

Reset didn't do it for me. HP didn't have a solution beyond this and was willing to replace my camera if it was still in warranty period (which it isn't). Suggestion was to purchase a replacement as cost of repair would be more (normal situation these days). They offered a discount on replacements - including a newere model camera. Appears this is a known 'bug' but not significant enough to initiate a recall or other special measure. Unfortuantely internal memory isn't sufficient for my needs so feel a little bummed about having to purchase a replacement.

Hi, try resetting the camera. To reset it, open the battery cover. You should see a tiny hole right beside the battery release switch. Here's the link for the camera rest: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00598200&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=1154651&lang=en If this does not resolve the issue, you can "live chat" with a HP representative free of charge.

Hope this helps,

Used camera today without realizing photo chip was not in camera. How can I get these pics to print or email to friends? When chip is removed from camera, I am able to view on camera window.


Plug it to a computer and open its files(explore) look for the file where your photos were stored and move them to your laptop/computer or flash drive from there you can send it.

I have Kodak Easyshare V1253 (only Kodak), and I use SD Card Transcend 4GB. I used this card long time without formatting. Now I tried to format it as I got this advice from my friend and since this time,...


Where are you formatting the card?...in the camera or the computer? It must be formatted in the camera. When you pull it out of the computer, do you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" function so the card does not become corrupted?

I have vivitar 5024 camera. i have a 4gb chip in it, i have only taken about 50 pic. and the camera says the chip has no more pictures to be taken on chip


Try taking photos on a lower resolution. They use much less space on your memory card. But only 50 on 4gb means something is wrong.

Check to see everything on the card is actually a picture and not a video. Taking videos can chew up amazing amounts of space, after all a video is a huge string of photos strung together. I hate to think it but some time ago a conamn was selling doctored memory cards which read 4gb on your camera but actually held only 2 gb. I would've thought these could have been long gone but if you purchesed it used it could well be one of those. Although I'd still expect more than 50 shots.
Maybe your card requirers a format. If your camera has a formatting capability try it out, just make sure you do it with a known good set of fully charged batteries. If they die halfway through a format it can wreck your card.
Your camera should certainly allow more pictures to be taken on a 4gb card. Buy check the above and maybe borrow a card from a friend to try out or even a another card. A spare sure comes in handy and with today's prices they're as cheap as chips.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

Picture on viewer fine..transfer to computer divided


It sounds like the file is corrupted. Try formatting the memory card in the camera. This will wipe the memory card clean and eliminate it from the being the problem. Formatting the memory is erase the memory card and you willnot be able to get the pictures off it after you format it, so make sure you down load all you the pictures you want befor formatting the card. Then occasionallly after downloading everything, format the card on a regular basis. This will help to keep the cards internal memeory from being fragmented. If formatting does not fix the problem, try another card (format it before use) if this does not fix it, take it to a local camera store and let them trouble shoot the problem or send the camera off for repair.

"Card error" usually means the camera wants you to format the card in the camera but you should have downloaded the contents to your computer first using a card reader if necessary. Your "friends" should have warned you about that. Formatting completely erases the card and optimizes it for the camera it was formatted in.

Camera says error formatting memory stick


Preformat : By Fix-shad0w

#1
Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Can not download pictures on computer- "Communication error" showing on camera display window; camera chip 2GB with 4100 pictures. Tried using another 2GB chip with less than 100 pictures in it...


Start deleting pictures base on how good they are, importance and priority. Then by trial and error delete 50 pictures, download; 100 ... 200. Finally it download ... after 10-15 seconds wait. Total pictures deleted 1700 out of 4200. So there is a limitation on this type of camera with a 2GB chip, you have to stop taking pictures and change camera
chip when the total count reach 2500 + or - 50 pictures.
