Many flash drives are tested and approved for use with the printer. For more information, visit the Lexmark Web site at

  3. Touch the document you want to print.

    Note: Folders found on the flash drive appear as folders. File names are appended by the extension type (for example, .jpg).
  4. Touch the arrows if you want to increase the number of printed copies.

  5. Touch Print.

    Note: Do not remove the flash drive from the USB port until the document has finished printing.

    If you leave the flash drive in the printer after leaving the initial USB menu screen, then you can still print .pdf files from the flash drive as held jobs.
