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?

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.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
Remove the Secure Digital memory card from the printer.
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?
If all of the above questions result in No , proceed to Step 4.
Check if the HP Photosmart printer supports the file format.
In order to know which file formats are supported by the different HP Photosmart printers, please refer to the manual of your printer.
(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.
Capture an image.
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.
If the images are read properly, turn on the printer. Insert the Secure Digital memory card in the Secure Digital slot.
If the printer display continues to show the Card Not Recognized error, try using another Secure Digital memory card, if one is available.
If the printer is still unable to read a functional and compatible Secure Digital card, contact HP to obtain additional troubleshooting information.
Try another memory card. It can be that the memory card stopped working. Also check if the tab on the card is not in the locked position.
Once you checked this, then I will conclude it is the camera. Are you able to insert the card so that it stays in without it trying to pop out? Maybe that one of the pins in the card reader is bent. This prevents the camera from recognizing the card.
To transfer the photos, connect directly SD card to your PC through a card reader.
Try to reset your HP R707 camera: remove the battery and press the reset switch for about 5 seconds. Reinsert the battery.
Hello. Make sure the write-protect switch on the SD card is in the UP (nearer to the contacts) position. Try the card in an SDHC capable reader on your computer first. Note that the SD card can only be inserted one way - make sure you're not putting it in upside-down! If the computer recognizes the presence of inserted card (whether it can read it or not), format it at FAT32. When finished, remove properly (icon in system tray) and insert into your D40 slot, WITH THE CAMERA OFF!! Turn on the D40, and if it now recognizes the SD card, FORMAT it again, in the camera. Good luck.
