Unsupported card error

I have an hp photosmart 435 camera. I am using the original SD card that came with the camera. Now I'm getting an unsupported card error on the lcd. My mother in law took it to Walgreens and they put another card in and it still said the same. Is there anything I can do to correct this problem?

    I last used the camera about 4 weeks ago and it was fine. I have just turned it on to use again and I am getting an 'unsupported card' message on the screen. It is the same card I have used for recent wedding photographs which I have put onto my computer and there is ample room on the card which is a Fujifilm 128 MB card. There are images on the card which I do not want to lose (10 images). What can I do?

Hello, This may be related with the sd card reader in the camera. It's pins doesn't make a perfect contact with the ones on the sd card. In order for your camera to recognise the card only 4 pins can be connected. However in this case the camera will give you this error because it can't acces the card (send information to it or receive) because of the missing pins. It will only recognise it as a card. The camera must be dissasembled and the card slot needs to be checked out for 2 things. One is that it makes perfect contact when a card is inserted, the other is that it gives you the right voltage to the card in order to power up correctly. When it will be checked with a voltmeter it will need to show up some 3.8 - 5.8 volts on some pins (i guess pin 3 and pin 7). These check need to be done in a service center, because dissasembling the camera yourself can result in other problems most often damaging the lens unit wich is a very delicate mechanism. Good luck and please reply if you need more info.

My hp photosmart r707 keeps saying the card is unreadable, buti just used it yesterday. i cant reset it either. it wont let me and the computer wont read it

Sounds like you're connecting things like your camera or your card in a card reader and just yanking them out of your computer without using the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.

When SD card inserted into camera it says unsupported card.

I looked on the manual ...and doesn't say anithing about cards..except that it has to be an SD...maybe there is something wrong with the camera ..or is not a secure digital ...and is a multimedia ...or the other way around...
try to see if its not locked...and reformat it on the computer ..if the camera don't have the feature to format it ......maybe its too small ...or too little ...or damaged...

You might be having trouble with your sd card in the camera because it is too big. Some camera's will only use a certain size card or up to a certain size card. Check your manual for restrictions on the size of SD cards that the camera can use. Also you can buy a sd card reader for about $20 at most stores that sell cameras. Put the card in the reader and then hook it to your computer. You can then transfer the pictures to the computer or to another sd card. Hope this helps.

SD Memory Card

Simple really you need to buy a new memory card that is compatible with your HP photosmart. The card you have is probably designed for toshiba products specifically.
