Memory card I bought a Photosmart 435 which I never could get to recognize that the memory card was inserted. I even bought a 2nd card thinking that the first must be broken. That did not work. I bought a 425 and I am having the same problem. What is the secret to making the camera "see" that a memory card is inserted?

I put a 4.0 gb sd card into the camera slot correctly. The camera says that the card must be formatted to work correctly. I format the card, but it just tells me I need to format again.

I deleted all the pictures, and then tried to re-format, however I still get stuck in the format again and again loop. What exactly can I do to correct this problem?
