Fix for HP 315 camera - 32mb CF limit under WinXP

I have a Hewlett Packard PhotoSmart 315. There is a known problem with this camera not working with Compact Flash cards larger than 32mb, under Windows XP (other versions of windows are fine apparently). Windows XP just keeps saying "The drive is not formatted" when I try to access the camera. HP and Microsoft's official response are both; 1. Don't use cards larger than 32mb 2. Buy a CF card reader. I can't seem to get a card reader locally, and can't afford the total cost of having one shipped (comes to about $60 Australian dollars - exactly what I payed for my new 128mb card) My vacation photos are still waiting to be downloaded off my 128mb CF card. But as I said above, I have seen references to an unnoficial fix for this, and apparently it works very well. Does anyone know where I can download it?

    I have had the same problem. Since I did not have a flash card reader available at the time, I tried using the software and cable that came with the camera. When the camera was connected and I clicked on the icon for the drive, it said "disk not formatted, do you want to format?" So I clicked yes, chose FAT and reformatted.



    Now when I put the card back into the camera, it is not recognized. How do I get the disk formatted back to the way it was so that the camera will recognize it?

Yes, find a printer that has the card slots in it and upload your photo's to your computer. You have to take the larger card out of the camera and insert in the printer. Yes it works I have a lexmark and do it all the time. if you have more questions e-mail me at [email protected]

How do i fix a Hp Hewlett Packard photosmart r937 digital camera?

Not sure on the camera model but cameras usually don't take 12v so I would comparability of charge voltage would be the problem. Cameras take 3v to 6v usually. Check the specs of your camera that will tell you what it needs. Hope this helps.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
