Digital cameras that are in storage mode can be attached to the front

USB port. The HP All-in-One treats cameras in this mode as a normal storage
device. Digital cameras in storage mode are referred to as storage devices
throughout this section.
Check your camera documentation to verify how to change the USB mode to
storage mode. Different cameras use different terms to describe the storage
mode. For instance, some cameras have a digital camera setting and a disk
setting. In this instance, the disk drive setting is the storage mode
setting. If storage mode does not work on your camera, you might need to
upgrade the camera firmware. For more information, see the documentation
that came with the camera.

Once you have connected the storage device, you can do the following with the files
stored on your storage device:

Transfer the files to your computer

View photos

Edit photos and videos using the control panel

Print photos on the HP All-in-One

Send photos and videos to your friends and family


Never attempt to disconnect a storage device while it is being

accessed. Doing so can damage files on the storage device. You can safely
remove a storage device only when the status light next to the memory card
slots is not blinking.
