Insert a memory device

If your digital camera uses a memory card to store photos, you can insert the memory
card into the printer to print or save your photos.

CAUTION: Attempting to remove a memory card while it is being accessed can
damage files on the card. You can safely remove a card only when the photo light
is not blinking. Also, never insert more than one memory card at a time as this can
also damage files on the memory cards.

NOTE: The printer does not support encrypted memory cards.

To connect a storage device

If you are connecting a digital camera, change the USB mode of the camera to
storage mode, and then connect one end of the USB cable to the camera.

NOTE: Different cameras use different terms to describe the storage mode.
For instance, some cameras have a digital camera setting and a disk drive
setting. In this instance, the disk drive setting is the storage mode setting. If
storage mode does not work on your camera, you might need to upgrade the
camera firmware. For more information, see the documentation that came
with the camera.


Insert the USB storage device or the other end of the camera’s USB cable to the
USB port on the front of the printer.

NOTE: If your USB device does not fit into this port due to size limitations, or if the
connector on the device is shorter than 11 mm (0.43 in), you will need to purchase
a USB extension cable in order to use your device with this port. For more
information on supported USB devices, see Memory card specifications.
