I am having trouble connecting to the memory card reader in the product over a network connection. What should I do?

  • Before you can access the memory card, make sure your all-in-one is connected to the network and the printer software is installed on the computer. Also disconnect any devices you may have connected to the  USB port on the front of the all-in-one. Then follow these steps:
    1. Insert a memory card in your all-in-one's memory card slot.

      Note: Make sure you're using a compatible memory card and have inserted only one card into the all-in-one.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • Windows:
        Click Start or , then click My Computer or Computer. Double-click the removable disk icon for the memory card located on your network.

        If you don't see the removable disk icon for the memory card, see below for setup instructions.
      • Macintosh:
        Double-click the Memory Card application icon (see example icon below) on your desktop or in the location where you saved it. This icon should have been saved when you installed the printer software.

        Caution: When you're done accessing the card over your network, do not drag the Memory Card application icon to the Trash. If you accidentally delete the icon or if you didn't install it during the initial setup, you'll need to reinstall it to be able to access memory cards over your network.
    If you still can't connect to the memory card in the all-in-one, follow these steps to make sure the all-in-one's memory card reader is set up to be accessed over the network:
    1. Remove any memory cards inserted in the memory card slot.
    2. If necessary, press the Home button on the control panel to return to the Home menu.
    3. Select Setup.
    4. Press  or , then select Network Settings.
    5. Press  or , then select File Sharing Setup.
    6. Select Network.
    7. Select the access level (Read Only or Read/Write) for the memory card reader.
    If you do not see the removable disk icon for the memory card (Windows) or the Memory Card application icon (Macintosh), follow the steps below for your operating system.
