    Map HP D7260 memory card reader


    Hi,
    I want to use the memory card reader on the HP D7260 printer.
    This printer is on a local network shared with a Desktop and a Laptop.
    Printing works OK from either computer.
    The drivers are up to date.
    I can view the pictures on the memory card, but, when I try to save (to the computer)
    I get an error:

    "Not set up you need to install device software"

    I posted to the HP forums and I was advised to map the shared PC to the shared Printer.
    HP is having a 24 hour "Experts Day" and I did get one response.

    The mapping they suggested did not work for me.
    It was to map:
    \\<sharedcomputername>\<sharedprintername>

    I verified the following names with NET VIEW \\FRANKSPC
    I used this mapping to letter J:
    \\FRANKSPC\HP Photosmart D7200 series BT 12-8-08

    The mapping program finds FRANKSPC but it cannot find:
    \HP Photosmart D7200 series BT 12-8-08
    which is the shared printer name displayed by NET VIEW
    Any Suggestions?
    Thanks

    Hi,
    I think that I have made some progress!
    Using this path for mapping a device
    \\FRANKSPC\HP Photosmart D7200 series BT 12-8-08\Memory_Card
    I no longer get
    J is not accessible. The system cannot find the drive specified"
    Now I get
    "The specified network resource or device is no longer available"

    When I use I.E to show I P \\192.168.1.115 (the printer I P) I do see a folder for
    memory_card (\\192.168.1.115).
    Properties > Network tab > Workgroup shows MSHOME

    At Control panel > System > Computer name, domain and workgroup setting
    Workgroup is = to WORKGROUP.
    Is this mismatch in workgroup name causing my problem?

    I changed my local network from Public to Private and then this "Map Network Drive" worked!

    map to letter "J"
    //HP3B9FF7\Memory_card

    HP3B9FF7 is the hostname from the Printer Network Configuration page

    I CAN now access the pictures using the reader built into the D7260 printer.
    The mis-matched group name was apparently not the problem though, it would be good to be able to change it from MSHOME to WORKGROUP
