Hp photosmart m22 memory card problem

I recently switched to rechargable batteries in my camera and now i cannot format my 512mb sd memory card. are the batteries too high in voltage? i went a got a replacement card at staples and it still does the same thing. as soon as i turn the camera on it asks to format the card and as soon as i press ok it acts like it will but then goes right back to please format card. this is highly frustrating because i am used to taking multiple pics and videos which without the card i cannot do. any solutions?

Rechargeable batteries voltage actually are lower than normal batteries, but is high when freshly charged or still hot after charging. don't use newly charged or hot battery, wait at least five minutes or let the batt cools down first. some model and brand uses compatible rechargeable batt, it is different from those sold individually which i think you are using. it has special switch activator attachment have you tried to switch back to alkaline? how about formatting the card in pc? try removing then reinserting the card for several times. this will clean the card contact point in camera.

Camera says "unabled to format, please replace card"

Check the SD memory card R/W switch.
SD and Micro SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

While cleaning out my elderly mothers house I found a Hp Photosmart M22. The memory card and batteries were missing. Otherwise it looks OK. I put in new batteries and a Lexar SDHC 4 GB memory card. It...

The M22 won't work with your 4GB SDHC card. It only works with MMC and SD cards up to 1GB in size. Having said that, if after cleaning the battery contacts and putting in new batteries, it still doesn't work, I'd toss it and get a newer camera. Giving its age and (lack of) capabilities, it just isn't worth repairing.

How do I unlock my Canon Power shot Memory Card Model SD 1100 IS

SD (and SDHC) 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.

I got a 4gb memory card-SanDisk and the camera says it is unreadable.i had a 512mb card and it worked fine.

Hi Tomcat,

this will not work.
The HP 945 does not support 4GB cards.
4GB (or more) are SD-HC (High Capacity). This is new format which only will be supported by newer camera models.

Memory 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.

Batteries

You can try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries and you will see a difference.
Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries.

Card formating

yikes!

Assuming you are talking about an SD card, no way that I am aware of. You might put your card into your comp and see if there's anything on the card.... sorry!

Won't read sd card - says card not suppoorted

Did you try putting the card in the camera, and using the camera's "format" card option?(Make sure there is nothing on the the card-a format will delete it.) Often times, a digital camera requires a format of the card so the proper file/directory structure can be created. If the card is empty, you have nothing to lose.
