Having problems with your HP Photosmart R725 Digital Camera ?

I have an HP Photosmar R725, and I recently got an SD card for it. It says "CARD HAS WRONG FORMAT" and "Press OK to format card." When I do, it says it's locked. I have unlocked the card, re-locked it, restarted the camera with the card both in and out, and I don't know what else to do. The card is a Sandisk SDHC card, 8gb.


Answers :

The R725 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My E15 works Ok with my SanDisk 2 GB SD card and with my SanDisk 4 GB SDHC card. It also works without a card. When I insert another card and press the power button, it turns on, but all buttons are locked. The only way I can shut it off is to remove the battery. Cards that do not work: SanDisk 8GB SDHC, SanDisk 8 GB SDHC Utra, 4 GB PNY SDHC.


Whatever is going on here is going to end up being at the card detection level, which means to repair it, the main control board would have to be changed out, and that would be an expensive fix. I couldn't find a model E15 on the net, and am uncer ... Digital Cameras

My Samsung Digimax A7 camera will not load memory cards.

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.
