It sounds as if something has got messed up on the card

Did you get all the photos off the card that you wanted to? If so, try the following:

Put the card back in the computer. Go to 'My Computer', right-click on the icon for the memory card and select 'Format'. (WARNING - Doing this will wipe any data from the card!)

Once your done, try it in the camera again. Hopefully all should be OK again.

It might also be worth reformatting the card with the camera itself. It shouldn't make any difference, but some people recommend this.

Hope this helps,

Matt

What to do when it says internal memory full


Delete some pictures off you camera. It means that there is no more room on your memory.

Make sure to transfer them to a computer, before you delete them, as you wouldn't want to lose precious memories.

How do i upload pictures from my memory card to my computer without the cord


You will need an external card reader to do this. Assuming you have one on hand or have a card reader built into your computer; just take out the memory card from the camera and plug it into the external reader. Your computer will present you with options on how to transfer your photos.

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.

After deleting photos from the memory card, it now says "card not initialized", when put back into the camera, none of the functions seem to fix it, can you help?


If your pics are safely on your computer, follow these rules: 1. Never erase pics using the computer...always use the camera. 2. Never remove anything from the computer USB ports without using the "safely remove hardware" function. 3. Now, your card needs to be formatted in the camera.
