    How big is your new memory card? The M525 works with SD cards. If your new card is larger than 2GB then it's actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and won't work.

Is the new card an SD or an SDHC card? Some cameras can't use the SDHC (high capacity) cards. Check your manual.

New 4GB SanDisk card won't format in my Hp M425 digital camera!


Hi,

First be aware that a 4GB card may well exceed the capability of this camera as older cameras have a max capacity of 2GB because of the filing system that is used which is known as FAT.

A 4GB card is FAT32 and this causes problems because older cameras cannot recognize that system.

However please have a look at my FixYa Tip on the subject which gives a complete breakdown on the issue.

In some cases you can format a card with your PC and it may work with the camera.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Memory card


You might need the SD card, not the one that has HC also.

Card has wrong format?


The first thing you will have to check the card. There is slot on the card that contains a switch. This will lock the card so that it is write-protected. This will cause the unsupported card error.

If the card looks fine, try a card reader just to confirm that the card has not been corrupted.

If the card is functional and you can read its contents from the PC or another SD-slot device, then the issue is your camera. The slot contains thin copper prongs that comes in contact the copper surface on the back of the SD card. If the prongs are bent or damage, then the camera cannot read your card.

Can't reformat my memory card


Hello

  • 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.

    Card has wrong format


    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.

    the card may have become corrupt, try carefully cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and try again,or try formatting it using a card reader, but you may have to replace the card.
