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.
