Re: Officejet pro 8600 plus print document from usb



I believe it can ONLY print pic as mentioned in its manual:


Print photos from a memory device
You can connect a USB storage device (such as a keychain drive or portable hard drive) to the USB port at the back of the printer. For more information about using memory devices, see Insert a memory device.
CAUTION: Attempting to remove a memory device while it is being accessed can damage files on the memory device. You can safely remove a memory card only when the status light is not blinking.

To print selected photos
NOTE: This function is only available if the memory device does not contain Digital Print Order Format (DPOF) content.
1. Insert your memory device into the appropriate slot on the printer. The Photo screen appears on the control panel display.
2. Touch View & Print. The photos are displayed.
3. Follow the instructions on the control panel display to select, edit, or print the photos


I fon't know how it can read other formats. It needs software such as Word, PDF .... to be able to print.


Hope this helps.
