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?

Re: hp photosmart m22 memory card problem
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
use different memory card, most troubles i always encountered in digicam are caused by memory cards, many cards works in pc but not in digicam.
hey tapping side by side always takes away the trouble. [;0)
