My networked computers seem to 1 by 1 be getting an error in phot printing wizard not enough memory to print picture.

These user say they have been able to print these photos with out any isses in the past. The pictures range from 2 meg to 200k. They try to batch pint them with Fax and photo printing wizard. What can cause this and what is the fix? Spooling, actual memory? They have 1 gig memory and plenty of hard drive space. See picture for exact error.

I find that when printing many pictures at a time, I need to reboot at various intervals in between to free up memory.....

I had the same problem with our scanner computer recently, it was apparently scanning the images (at least temporarily) to the hard drive and using up ALL disk space.  The next time you get this message, check free disk space on C and see what it says -- you might be surprised.... just a thought.

I've also read where this is caused by a video driver problem... may update driver?

As i said in my inital post there is 1 gig of memory on these machines and plenty of hard drive space. Could it be something to do with the printer language being so memory intensive the spool file seems huge compared to the actual file to be printed?

Well I found that even though in the morning the scanner PC might have 8 gig of space, by the afternoon, there was no free space .... I couldn't believe that it could use up 8 gig in a few hours.....
