Printer identified as a removable storage drive?

When I have connected my printer via usb 2.0 port.My computer recognises it as another removable storage drive (drive E:). Is this normal?

Would your printer be one of those which can read from a flash card and print directly from it? I've never used those printers and don't really know how they behave in Windows Explorer, but just wondering.

im with temp003 on this. it must have a memory card reader built in to it.

What printer do you have??????

I agree with the first answers, my printer/scanner, which has a memory card reader, is recognised as a removable disc.

However if you entered the make and model of yourt printer it would make it easier to give a proper reply.
