    Ensure copier is turned on

It MAY be able to print common files such as JPG, PDF from a flash drive if there's a USB port but no one I have seen does this and I've never seen the question asked of a major device like that.

Looking at the documentation, the USB port to plug in flash memory should be on the side of the display.
Plug in USB on side of display.
Printer port requires you to remove some covers to access.
Remove covers to access the LAN port.

According to the data sheet, the Taskalfa 6501 can operate as a printer. It has a network port and 4 USB Host interfaces. Drivers are avaIlable here.

To use it as a printer, you first have to make sure it is connected to the network. If it is, and if you know its IP address, you can install the driver using Lee's post.

Printers cannot print "documents" like Word or Excel files. However, printing images is possible. According to the Operation Guide, the 6501 can print JPEG and TIFF files from USB. See page 17 (page 21 of the PDF). However, this must be enabled (se pg 13).

Question 1 -- You can print using USB Memory

Refer to Page 244

Imp Point to note
The following file types can be printed:
• PDF file (Version 1.7 or older)
• TIFF file (TIFF V6/TTN2 format)
• JPEG file
• XPS file
• Encrypted PDF file
• PDF files you wish to print should have an extension (.pdf).
• Files to be printed should be saved no further down than the top 3 folder levels, including the root folder.
• Use USB memory properly formatted by this machine.
• Plug the USB memory directly into the USB Port (A1).
