Card has wrong format? - HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera


Answers :

Okay; I've had the same problem with formatting my memory card for the M425..finally discovered you can't use the SDcard with HC and you can't use more than 2GB. Once I finally used the SanDisk SD 2GB card it worked perfectly. No more frustration. Hope this helps.
The first thing you will have to check the card. There is slot on the\015\012card that contains a switch. This will lock the card so that it is\015\012write-protected. This will cause the unsupported card error.

If the card looks fine, try a card reader just to confirm that the card has not been corrupted.

If\015\012the card is functional and you can read its contents from the PC or\015\012another SD-slot device, then the issue is your camera. The slot\015\012contains thin copper prongs that comes in contact the copper surface on\015\012the back of the SD card. If the prongs are bent or damage, then the\015\012camera cannot read your card.
