Dear sir,

even after removing the lock(by pushing the push button at the upper side of the card which allows the card to lock and unlock)and when you are trying to format it,it shows formatting cannot be done right??????????////

all right,just take the card and put in a card reader and try formatting,hope this helps...even after trying in crd reader if ur card cannot be formatted,then the card is being corrupted..........its advisable to go for sandick or transcend memory cards which have a longer life and some important pictures or joyfull moments being picturised if missing,it hurtsa lot,because i also faced this problem........

thank you...take care

Are you sure it's an SD card? The R725 works with SD cards 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Even after you did format these cards in the PC, you better chose to format the cards in the camera you want to use it.
And if you have checked the cards on the memory card, please also check the contacts in the camera.

Camera says "unabled to format, please replace card"


Check the SD memory card R/W switch.
SD and Micro SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

The R725 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Screen on camera says card locked We have removed the card and replaced it and it still says the same thing please help>


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Unsupported card error on r725 photosmart hp


I've had this happen a few times. I simply removed the memory card and reinserted it. Usually that does the trick on the first try. On a bad day I've had to do it 3 or 4 times in a row until it just worked.

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,
