Hello Bleepingcomputer-ites,
OK, I've searched everywhere and I haven't found a solution so... I bought a new camera that uses the SDHC cards, my older(but still awesome) printer doesn't recognize the SDHC format in it's card reader. The printer is an HP Photosmart 7550. Here is the dilemma, all I need is a firmware upgrade for the HPH11 cardreader that is built into the Photosmart 7550 printer. I am willing to even try something that MIGHT be compatible, if it even exists. Please let me know if anyone can help. I can also tell you that HP has NO idea what I'm talking about, they have asked me to upgrade my driver and that does absolutely nothing.

Thanks,
MickeyG

It is my understanding that SDHC is not compatible in any way with SD. There is no upgrade

Mark,
Thanks for the info. I checked the SD site and you are correct. I'm guilty of buying something without reading the fineprint. I had read the whitepapers from when they were going to release the HC cards and looking back, it was dated sometime in 2006. This article was where they mentioned that cardreaders would need a firmware upgrade to read the "new" HC cards. Well, I guess that never came to fruition and I'm stuck with having to print via usb through the PC to the printer. A little slower, but still doable. So much for becoming more efficient! Thanks for your help!
