USB drives – they are everywhere these days. They are given as promotional products, given away at trade shows and conventions and are in the pockets or purses of millions of people. They are so handy and make data portable and easily accessible. Did you know that many of the Xerox printers and multifunction devices can print from and / or scan to USB memory devices?
Just think of the many applications with which the USB feature can be used. For instance, scan in documents for a presentation on your Xerox multifunction device to the USB drive and pop the drive in your pocket to use at the presentation location. Or you can take a USB drive that contains documents you need and just insert the USB drive into a Xerox printer and print out the documents, no PC necessary. Only USB drives formatted to the typical FAT32 file system are supported.
Some of our printers will print from the drive and others will print from and scan to the drives, it all depends on the features available on your machine. You don’t even have to touch a computer. You can walk up, plug-in your USB drive and print or scan your document using the user interface. The USB port for these functions is easily accessible on the front of the machine in most cases.
To find out what you can do with the USB drive and your Xerox machine please consult your machine’s user manual or go to the Support Page for your machine and search on USB. By the way remember you can find your user and administrator manual under the documentation tab on your machine support page.
If you have any questions about what you can do with the USB drive and your machine you can also contact support or post a question on the Xerox Customer Support Forum. The USB drive capability adds even more flexibility to your Xerox equipment and increases the portability and convenience of managing your files.
