Question about HP PhotoSmart M627 Digital Camera
When press ok comes up unable to format
The M627 does not support SDHC as I tried a 8GB it will only use SD cards.HP says up to 256MB but I have been using 4GB for a long while now.I wanted to try 8GB but will have to get a plain SD.

I also have the same problem, but I found the solution. The camera will only support cards up to 2GB

I had the same problem switching from the card that came with the camera to a 2GB scandisk card... i found that my problem was that I had to use the "safely remove hardware" feature in windows and it worked fine. may be helpful to others..

SOURCE: card will not format
Place the card in a card reader, attach via USB to your
computer and transfer anything you want to save to the
PC. Then delete everything from the card and re-insert
in the camera. You should now be able to format the
card, provided it's within the capacity limit of the camera
which is 2GB.

The problem is that you're using an incompatible memory card.
Your camera is designed to use SD memory cards up to a maximum 2GB capacity. Click on this link for the user manual and look at the specification on page 43 under the heading "storage".
You're trying to use an 8GB SDHC: not only is the capacity far too large for your camera to handle, but it's a later technical standard which your camera does not have the hardware for. SD and SDHC cards may look the same, but are very different "under the skin". SDHC compliant devices are backwards compatible with earlier SD cards, but SD devices like your camera cannot be updated to use SDHC cards.
Your only fix is to replace the SDHC card with an SD card of no greater than 2GB capacity.
