    SD is not the same as SDHC.

    These are the memory card specifications for your printer it does not appear to include SDHC.

    Memory card specifications
    • Maximum recommended number of files on a memory card: 1,000
    • Maximum recommended individual file size: 12 megapixels maximum, 8 MB
    • Maximum recommended memory card size: 1 GB (solid state only)
    NOTE: Approaching any of the recommended maximums on a memory card might cause the performance of the HP Photosmart printer to be slower than expected.

    Supported memory card types
    • CompactFlash Type 1 and II
    • Memory Stick
    • Memory Stick Duo
    • Memory Stick Pro
    • Secure Digital
    • MultiMediaCard (MMC)
    • XD-Picture Card
    Other memory cards, including Memory Stick Magic Gate Duo, Memory Stick Duo, and Secure Multimedia Card, are supported with the use of an adapter. See the instructions that came with your memory card for more information.

    I need help! I have a Canon camera and I am using a SDHC card 16 GB. I tried to download my pictures onto my computer but the pictures will not show up, the thumbnails will show up but it will not let me view the actual pictures. I have 740 pictures on this card and they show just fine on the camera itself but it will not show up on the computer or let me download it to a CD. I took it to CVS and Walgreens to print but the pictures will not show up on their systems either. Please can someone help me?

    I doubt there is much you can do, if the professionals equipment will not read the card it has probably developed a fault. When you try to download the card to the PC are you using a USB connection to the camera, if not try that method. There is little else I can suggest.

    In future please start you own thread for a better chance of getting a reply. The only people who will see this yopur post are those that are already subscribed to this thread, the OP, Lordsmurf and myself. That is why it is in the forum rules which you obviously have not read:).

    Please do not introduce your own problems in someone else's thread. Start a new one for yourself.

    To the OP:
    Many devices have a maximum capacity of 2 GB's for card-reading. If you really need to read that card, transfer its contents to 2 GB cards.
