Answers :

Reset didn't do it for me. HP didn't have a solution beyond this and was willing to replace my camera if it was still in warranty period (which it isn't). Suggestion was to purchase a replacement as cost of repair would be more (normal situation these days). They offered a discount on replacements - including a newere model camera. Appears this is a known 'bug' but not significant enough to initiate a recall or other special measure. Unfortuantely internal memory isn't sufficient for my needs so feel a little bummed about having to purchase a replacement.
Hi, try resetting the camera. To reset it, open the battery cover. You should see a tiny hole right beside the battery release switch. Here's the link for the camera rest: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00598200&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=1154651&lang=en If this does not resolve the issue, you can "live chat" with a HP representative free of charge.

My Kodak C190 will not read the card. I cannot format it in the camera because IT WON'T READ IT IN THE CAMERA. I keep seeing the same answer - "format in the camera" - but it can't read it.
