Problem getting HP Photosmart to recognize digital camera memory card

I have a Nikon DX digital camera with a 4G Promaster memory card. I inserted the memory card into is the SD-MMC slot (top right and the only slot it fits into). However, after the green light starts blinking I get a "memory card error" in the window. I put the card back into the camera, which showed that I still had my pictures. I've checked my manual for troubleshooting but cannot find anything on this type of error. Is this type of memory card not suitable with the C6100 All-in-One system?
Thanks, Linda

From what read of the specs, the C6100 does not support SDHC cards, only SD cards. SD cards top out at 2GB; what you have is technically an SDHC (High Capacity) card, which does not work in SD devices.

Hp Photosmart 8150 can't read sdhc memory card


Unless the SD slot is specifically designated that it can read the new SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) memory card it will not read even though it plugs intop the standard SD slot.. I checked and this printer can't read the SDHC card only the standard SD card. You can buy a SDHC USB reader on ebay for a few dollars.

Hp 8250 will nt recognize a promaster 4 gb sd hc card...i tied two


The 8250 works with SD cards. Your 4GB cards are actually SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work (SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around). You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

When putting the memory card into the slot, the screen reads 'memory card error'. Also, will not read the camera when plugged into USB socket. Please Help!


Hi there,
The camera port only supports USB-equipped digital cameras that support Pict-Bridge. If you attach a USB device that is not compactible digital camera (or Bluetooth adaptor) to the camera port, an error message appears on the color graphics display. If you have an older HP-brand digital camera, try using the USB that came with the camera. PLug it into the USB port on the back of the HP-all-in-one and not into the camera port near the memory card slots, This works with HP digital cameras only.
By default, Windows XP will format a memory card of 8 MB or less and 64 MB more with the FAT32 format, Digital cameras and other devices use the FAT (FAT 16 or FAT 12) format and cannot operate with a FAT32 formatted card. Either format your memory card in your camera or select FAT format to format your memory card in a Windows XP PC.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

Wrong SD cards????


Your printer may have issues reading SDHC memory cards. The Secure Digital 2.0 standard (SDHC) is not backwards compatible and requires SDHC compatible devices in order to function.

Previous solution is the FAIL. Original poster says it works fine in _camera_, but not in _printer_. _Printer_ is the compatibility issue, not camera.

The same thing happened to my photosmart 8450, so I went to ebay and bought one of those download devices for less than ten dollars and it works just great. Takes all the cards, and seems to be trouble free.
