Printing From a USB Flash Drive on a Canon Printer


The IT1 printer on the first floor of Riggs is available for printing directly from a USB drive. Supported files are .PDF .JPG and .TIFF.

Here's how:


  1. Scan Your Prox to Open the Menu and Press [Access Stored Files] on the Main Menu screen.

  1. Press [Memory Media].

  1. Select the desired memory media.

  • If the USB Device Port-B1 and Multimedia Reader/Writer-A1 are installed, you can use the SD card, Memory Stick, CF card, and Microdrive. For more information, see"Optional Products."
  1. Browse to the level (folder) where the file you want to print is stored.

If there are seven or more stored files, press [], or [] to scroll through the stored files.

You can select and print multiple files with the same settings if they are in the same file format.

However, you can only print up to six files at a time.

You cannot select and print multiple files if their file formats, such as JPEG and TIFF, are different from each other.

  • The selected files are numbered in the order specified, and are printed in that order.
  • You can cancel a selection by selecting the file again.
  • To cancel all files, press [Clear Selection].
  • When there are two or more files stored in the memory media, you can press [Name] or [Date/Time] to sort the list of files.
  • When you close the memory media after sorting the files, the files will be unsorted the next time you open the memory media.
  • If you press [Name], or [Date/Time] with a file selected, that file is unselected, and the top of the file list is displayed.

The Select Paper screen is displayed only if you are printing a JPEG or TIFF file.

When printing starts, the following screen appears.

When printing is complete, the display returns to the Memory Media Selection screen.

  • If you notice a difference between the document size specified when scanning originals and the actual print size, you can adjust the print size in [Zoom Fine Adjustment] in Adjustment/Maintenance (Settings/Registration). (See [Zoom Fine Adjustment] in "Settings/Registration Table.")
