Memory Card

  chasbea28 09:31 28 Nov 2005

I have installed a Lenmark Printer P707, Which has memory card slots.
When I tried to read the card from my digital camera nothing happened.
Can any one help ?

Try re-installing the printer, chasbea28. Also, a more info on your system wouldn't hurt, like Operating System, printer connection type, type of memory card, etc.

Thanks for your prompt reply.
Printer has ben re-installed, same problem.
Connection by USB.
System XP, all updates loaded.
Memory card is Smart Media, 32 MB.
AVG and Zone Alarm used.
When digital camera is connected by USB no problem.
Connected to AOL Broadband.

Error in printers name-should be Lexmark 707.

Printers with memory card slots can operate in either of two modes.
1 as stand alone printer no computer required.
or as a card reader to PC.
Dont know about Lexmark, particulary[ Epson man my self] but when card are loaded into the printer I assume it is 'expecting' to run computer free
is there not a screen on the printer tell you what to do next or an online PDF manual with the disk?

Does the card go in both ways? try it

Thanks for replies.
Printer is card reader to PC.
No screen on printer. Will look again at PDF manual.
Card only goes in one way.

Still not resolved.

Printer Software.
Once more going olny by Epson experience

The software comea as printer driver,
Card reader or something simliar
plus the usual add ons.
in other wqords load card via camera and WinXp will detect it an another drive.
Load via Printer and the Compyer will only read via printer software- no drive on screen - what did the manual tell you?

As jack says, if you click on "my computer" does the card reader not show as a "removeable disc"? I would expect XP to find it automatically.

Thanks Jack.
Manual did not metion memory card, so back to square one.
My digital camera works well, but its vey annoying that the printer slot does not.
Been to Lexmark web site and got new downloads, No joy. Will keep trying.
