Question about HP Photosmart R725 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have an HP Photosmar R725, and I recently got an SD card for it. It says "CARD HAS WRONG FORMAT" and "Press OK to format card." When I do, it says it's locked. I have unlocked the card, re-locked it, restarted the camera with the card both in and out, and I don't know what else to do. The card is a Sandisk SDHC card, 8gb.

The R725 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. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

SOURCE: SD card won't format

Did you update the Firmware of the camera? The VPC-C6 can read and write to SDHC memory cards up to 4GB but it would require to have the latest Firmware being installed on the camera. Firmware can be downloaded via http://www.sanyo-dsc.com/english/support/updata/vpc_c6/index.html

SOURCE: Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"

Hi,
I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.


Regards.

You need to buy an SD card. the Z740 works with SD and MMC cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into an SD slot, there are hardware differences which keep them from working. SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.

Again, you need to use SD cards, which max out at 2GB. Anything larger is an SDHC card, which does not work in your camera.

SOURCE: i just purchased a sandisk sdhc card 8gb memory

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.

Are you sure it's an SD card? The R725 works with SD cards 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

I have HP Photosmart R827 with the same problem. when I was uploading stuff onto my memory card I might have hotlinked and when I disconnected it said "Card Unreadable" and told me to format. i...


memory cards can become damaged. this can be from removing it at the wrong time or a file become corrupted, it can wipe the format off the card. and will need reformatting. dont do this on the camera as it can put the wrong format on the card. doe this on a pc, it will probably say when you instal the sd that it needs formatting. click yes, a box will appear and have it all set out for you but don't click format yet, in the box where it says restore device defaults click this. and then press to format. this will put it as the best for any device its being used for. if you had anything on the sd card before it will not be there before or after the format. hope this helps.

Camera: HP Photosmart R725. Can't format SD card; says its locked when its not.


dear sir,

even after removing the lock(by pushing the push button at the upper side of the card which allows the card to lock and unlock)and when you are trying to format it,it shows formatting cannot be done right??????????////

all right,just take the card and put in a card reader and try formatting,hope this helps...even after trying in crd reader if ur card cannot be formatted,then the card is being corrupted..........its advisable to go for sandick or transcend memory cards which have a longer life and some important pictures or joyfull moments being picturised if missing,it hurtsa lot,because i also faced this problem........

thank you...take care

Memory card unreadable, card has wrong format, card is locked


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Card has wrong format


Not a solution, but after corresponding with HP customer service, they concluded that the problem with my M527 (see above) cannot be fixed. They offered to replace it with the same two-year old model for $99.99 which is much more than that model camera would be worth. I declined their offer.
