transferring photos from memory card to computer

We recently replaced our old HP Photosmart 7350 with an HP OfficeJet Pro 8500A.  On the old Photosmart, when I inserted my camera memory card into the printer, it automatically initiated a dialogue to save the photos onto my computer hard drive.  But on the OfficeJet Pro, when I insert the memory card it only asks about printing the photos.  Is there a way to transfer the files on the memory card to my computer so I can save them and/or edit them before printing?  Help!  My photo files are stacking up and I don't have a way to store them on my hard drive!

Hi ginger_berry,

 

How do you have the printer connected to your computer? (USB, Ethernet or Wireless)

 

Follow the steps below to map the card reader

1. Insert memory card into the printer
2. Open My Computer
3. Click on Map network drive
4. Choose desired Drive letter, and then enter \\192.168.1.101\memory_card in the folder

Note: Replace the 192.168.1.101 with the IP Address assigned to your printer.

5. Click finish, and the drive will open to access the files

Re: transferring photos from memory card to computer

I'm just an average, every day person - not a tech guru. I don't have a usb cable.  I didn't connect my printer that way - I don't want to connect it that way. It was hard enough getting it to work across all the computers in my house using an ethernet connection. NOT being able to read the pictures on the memory card in the printer from my computer with that connection is a poor design on HP's part in my opinion.

Re: transferring photos from memory card to computer

Hi akeleven,

 

1. If the Bar at the top says Finder (Click on the desktop background if it doesn't)

2. Click Go --> Connect to Server.

3. Click Browse

4. Depending on the number of networked devices, you may have several items in the list, click on and see if it shows Memory_Card under the connected item. If it doesn't, try the next device.

  

Note: When you are looking for the memory card in the list you will find it listed under the Network Hardware (Mac) address instead of the Hardware (Mac) address of the printer. Refer to my screen shot below.

5. Once you find the correct "Memory_Card" listing, you will be able to access your files over the network.

 

Once you click on Memory_Card to view the files on the card, the computer/printer/memory card will be moved to the top of the list under the Shared category on the left Navigation Panel. As long as you don't disconnect, this should remain at the top of that list for easy access until you reboot your Mac.

Re: transferring photos from memory card to computer

Tried map network change addess. Does not work. Surprised HP did not make a simple task to tansfer memory card photos to PC.

If HP reads my post Woould be nice to provide a fix for the 8600 pr plus printer.
