HP PHotosmart 8450 problem: not reading memory card

Hi,

I am using a Kodak 128MB memory card inserted in the printer but it's not reading it. I know the memory card isn't damaged because I can use it viewing photos through my Palm.

The printer hasn't been used for a few months because the office moved to a new location and this was not needed. Now we need it and its not reading the memory card. Please advise.

Thank you very much.

I am using a stand alone photosmart 8450 ( with out computer ) it will print every memory card except SDHC the cards are fine as I use them in my Pentax camera


The 8450 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. SD cards will work in SD and SDHC devices, but SDHC cards will not work in SD devices.

PNY Optima SD HC Card cannot be read in HP Photosmart 8150 printer.


  1. Verify that the printer is turned off.
  2. Remove the Secure Digital memory card from the printer.
  3. Examine the Secure Digital memory card:
    • Is the lock switch in the unlock position?
    • Are there any visible discolorations or defects such as crack or nick in the card?
    • Are there any contacts missing from the end of the card?
    • Are there any deep scratches in the card contacts?
    • Is there any heat discoloration on the card? NOTE: If all of the above questions result in No , proceed to Step 4.
  4. Check if the HP Photosmart printer supports the file format. NOTE: In order to know which file formats are supported by the different HP Photosmart printers, please refer to the manual of your printer.
  5. (Saving the pictures on the PC, if possible) Insert the Secure Digital memory card in the camera (or another device) and format it following the proper instructions to perform it.
  6. Capture an image.
  7. Review the image. If the image is corrupted or an error such as Unsupported Image File is displayed, the Secure Digital memory card is suspected to be defective and should either be replaced or referred to the manufacturer for further troubleshooting.
  8. If the images are read properly, turn on the printer. Insert the Secure Digital memory card in the Secure Digital slot.
  9. If the printer display continues to show the Card Not Recognized error, try using another Secure Digital memory card, if one is available.
  10. If the printer is still unable to read a functional and compatible Secure Digital card, contact HP to obtain additional troubleshooting information.

No card to insert


Hi there
It looking for a memory right and as you say you not got a card it looking for this because it is trying to save it to the card you will have to look in your printer driver there may be a settings there you need to change and also look on the printer it self in the menu.

The memory card contains more than 2000 photos. The HP Photosmart 7550 printer can only read up to 2000 photos at once.

Save the photos to a computer and access them from there.

The printer thinks it got a card inserted so maybe it worth a try power off the printer and take plug out and leave foe 1 hour then put back on see if it may reset the memory.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

HP Photosmart 8450 won't read 4gb SD card.


Yes, you should have received a USB cable with your camera. If not, take the camera to Radio Shack for a match-up.

SD Memory Card


Simple really you need to buy a new memory card that is compatible with your HP photosmart. The card you have is probably designed for toshiba products specifically.
