This is an all in one printer for which I am trying to increase scanning memory.  I have been trying to scan some pictures at the highest quality resolution for scanning but when the scan completes I get the "Memory Not Enough To Hold Image".  How do I increase this setting or add physical memory to the printer if possible at all?  Thanks!

There is nothing in Lexmark's site that indicates you can add memory, nor are there any restrictions in the scan mode about what is needed to scan at the highest resolution.  Are you sure the problem isn't on the pc end, as far as insufficient memory?

You don`t say how large the images are, but an A4 48bit image at 2400x1200 dpi is enormous.

a monochrome A4 bitmap image at that resolution would be about 2.5GB , and a 48 bit image would be 48 times that size.

I know that there is compression, but the maximum resolution of that scanner is probably only usable for very small areas.
If the message is coming up on your PC, try increasing the available virtual memory, but you will probably find that this is a limitation of the equipment.

The problem is that bitmap images at high resolutions rapidly become huge files.
