    I am having the same problem and found the micro switch that is made when the lens cover is slid open is faulty, only working intermittently of with added pressure on cover. Its a flimsy little switch and after use can't help but fail. I have yet to find this switch online.

Hp photosmart e317 digital camera downloads for windows 7 operating systems

You don't need any special software.
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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Where is memory card inserted in E317 camera?

Open the battery door. There's a small slot behind the battery that is for the memory card. The notch end of the memory card should go in first when inserting it. See the image below

What kind of san disk card does an hp photosmart e317 take?

The E317 uses MMC and SD cards, from SanDisk or any other maker. The manual recommends SD cards, as they are faster than MMC cards. The manual also states that only cards up to 1GB in size are supported.

Need memory card for the hp photosmart e317 /w 5.0 megopixels

The E317 uses MMC or SD cards. MMC cards are getting hard to find, but SD cards should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Make sure you get an SD card, 2GB and smaller, and not the larger SDHC cards.

Big fingers and need it simple

The HP PhotoSmart E317 is indeed a simple to use camera. Here's a picture of the back of the camera. TestFreaks gave it a 6.0 out of 10 -- from the experts. However, real users (consumers like you and me) gave it a 7.9 out of 10. There are very few buttons to deal with and the open/close door acts as the power off/on function. It should be a good replacement for your older camera.

I hope this helps!
