Will a SD 2gb memory card work in my hp 620 digital camera?


Yes, any Secure Digital (SD) memory card can be put into your hp Photosmart 620 camera safely. I would not go any bigger than 4 GB due to the limitations of some computers that you may use to download and process your photographs. And, you probably will want to pull off the phototgraphs and put them onto your computer for long term storage or for printing. That camera normally makes about a 1 Mb file for a JPEG image file. It will take a long time for you to fill up a 2 GB card; around 2,000 photographs.

I've installed software onto new laptop & now trying to load photographs from camera, but keep getting an I/O error message & process aborted. What can I do?


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Fuji Fine Pix F10 camera says ''card full'' when it is not.


If you plug your camera into your computer again and click Start > My Computer. Your camera should be listed under the devices there.
Double click to view what is inside your camera. You will have to browse to a folder in your camera with a name like DCIM (I can not be exact here since it can vary.)
Select and delete all the images you find on the device.
The problem here is that when you downloaded the photographs from the camera to the computer, you did not check the option to remove the downloaded photographs from the camera, freeing up the space for more new photographs.

USB connection with the camera causes computer to crash.


Try using a different USB cable. The connections between cameras and computers usually are problematic. A card reader will allow you to download the pictures from the SD card, without problems and saving your camera's battery power supply

How do i uplaod pics from my cannon powershot sd700?i have it connected to comuter, it makes noise like it recognizes it but then it says it doesnt, make sure its connected & powered on.


It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But as a solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. They're very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of heartache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews:

And for international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

Message: Cant read file header.Unknown file format/file not found


First check to see what the settings are set on how the files are saved. If they are set to RAW mode you won't be able to open them. Set the camera to jpg mode. Then you will be able to open them. The RAW mode is an advanced mode that requires an advanced operator to utilize all of the fuctions.
