Question about HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera
I have an HP M425 camera. When the camera is turned on it says: Card has Wrong Format....Press OK to format card". When I do in fact press OK, it says "Unable to Format"...
I've used this camera for over a year with no prob...
I had the same problem with an HP R817 when I used an ultrafast sd card init - it killed the card!
Now I only buy standardsd cards and reformat - only wipe the files on the card and not reformat it!
Works OK upto 4gb so far!
Hope this helps someone!

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.

This is Vikram Kumar Thumu from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to the Error message stating that Wrong Format. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work and will resolve the issue for you.
If this is exact error message then try :
"CARD HAS WRONG FORMAT. Press OK to format card. "
Possible cause is : The memory card is formatted for a different device such as an MP3 player.
Solution : Reformat the memory card (remove the card from the camera if you do not want it to be reformatted).
I hope that this should resolve the issue.
If the issue still persists then you can take help of HP Chat Support.
