Q:
How do I read a memory card inserted in the Artisan over a network connection?
A:
In Windows, follow these steps to map a network drive to the memory card reader:
  1. Print a Network Status Sheet.


  2. Open Windows Explorer.


  3. Select Map Network Drive from the toolbar (Windows Vista) or Tools menu (Windows XP or 2000). A Map Network Drive window appears.




  4. Select the drive letter you want to assign to the network drive.




  5. Enter the following in the Folder field: \\servername\sharename

    Refer to the printed network status sheet for the "servername" and "sharename".

    • servername = Host Name or Printer Name (e.g., EPSONXXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the last 6 digits of the printer’s MAC address)


    • sharename = File Share Name (default is MEMORYCARD)


    Be sure to type the servername and sharename exactly as it appears on the network status sheet (it is case sensitive).


  6. Place a check mark in the box to the left of Reconnect at Logon.


  7. Click Finish.

    If a Connect to EPSONXXXXXX window appears, select the appropriate user name and click OK to connect to the printer.
