Insert a memory card
- Inserting the memory card any other way may damage the card and the all-in-one.
- When inserting a SD card into the printer make sure not to insert it at an angle as this could bend the pins for the XD reader
- Never attempt to remove a memory card while it is being accessed. Doing so can damage files on the card. You can safely remove a card only when the status light next to the memory card slots is not blinking. Also, never insert more than one memory card at a time. Doing so can also damage files on the memory cards. Do not pull out a memory card while the Memory Card light is flashing green.
- After you have taken pictures with a digital camera, remove the memory card from the camera.
- Turn the memory card so that the label faces up and the contacts face the all-in-one.
- Insert the memory card into the corresponding memory card slot.
Use the following guidelines when inserting memory cards:
- Insert only one memory card at a time.
- Gently push the memory card into the all-in-one until it stops. The memory card does not insert all the way into the all-in-one; do not try to force it.
- When the memory card is inserted correctly, the Memory Card light flashes and then remains solid green.
