Smart Media Card in New HP Printer D7300 ??

I have a new HP D7300 Photo Printer and I have an Olympus camera that has a 32 MB Smart Media card,.. It seems that the new printer does not support the Smart Media format and I want to print my pictures and not have to buy another printer.

What can I do to allow my pictures to be transferred to the printer?

Assuming you have a computer of some sort, purchase a USB smart card reader.  Something like this:  http://www.pcconnection.com/IPA/Shop/Product/Detail.htm?sku=423645&oext=1038A&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=423645

You can then put your card in the reader, and print them as soon as they show up on your computer.

I guess from the fact that SmartMedia is now an older technology that your camera has neither PictBridge or Bluetooth - either of which will allow you to connect your camera directly to the printer so no PC would be needed.

You can also get one of these adapters that will accept the MMC card and allow it to be used in a Compact Flash slot which your printer has.

Actually Smart Media  is not the same so I do not know if your suggestion will work, Smart Media are much larger cards,,,

Sorry , don't know why I picked up on MMC rather than smart media as your printer already supports MMC.

Here is what you need http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=SMTOCF

The only adapter Circuit City stock online doesn't support Smart Media :(

@sparkmaker, sorry the link is fine, I meant it was the product that wouldn't work.

I actually found on Buy.com   a combination SmartMedia and 3 Port USB 2 hub..

3 Port USB Hub 2.0 with Multi-Card Reader (works with PCs and Xbox 360!)  

it had some good reviews and price so I will see.  $9.99 free shipping..
