The M525 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the M525.

Put memort card in camera,,didn't realize I had to format disc.followed instructions in book to format but does not tell me it is formatting,,, still get unsupported card message


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Please note that your particular model camera can only use up to 2GB standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

I just purchased an SDHC card for my camera. it says that it is the wrong format. it also says that it can not format. what next


An SDHC (4GB or higher) card will not work with your older camera. You need to purchase a standard SD card (2GB or less). They're relatively inexpensive on Amazon if your local stores no longer carry them.

I put my sd card back into my camera and now it is saying that it is the wrong format. What is the format it should be in/.


Hi,

The file format is FAT. You should be able to format the card using the camera's menu. Alternatively you can pop the card in a card reader and use the computer to format the card.

Make sure you have copied the contents of the card to the computer before you format it as you will loose all the data on it.



Regards.

I just purchased a sandisk sdhc card 8gb memory card.how do i my camera says it is the wrong format.press ok and it will format it....i pressed the ok button and it says unable to format.can you help.


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.

Wrong format on HP M425


Just fixed this problem on a M525 camera (same physical construction).

Do a search with M525 and format.
