Scanning using HP Officejet 4650

Does the above HP printer has an SD or USB port that I could scan & save directly to?

Or how does it save scan outputs?  To a laptop wirelessly or via a USB cable or ?

If scan images are saved via wireless, any chance I could save direct to a wireless
HDD like Toshiba Canvio AeroCast  or  
Seagate Wireless Mobile Portable Hard Drive Storage 500GB STDC500101 ??

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the short answer is no -
there is no option to directly scan on flash drive

You can scan to a computer both over wireless and via USB. No flash drive or network device options. Sorry to disappoint you.

> via USB
So I can stick a thumb drive into the 4650 & scan directly into the thumb drv?

If the 4650 doesn't allow a thumb drv or SD to be stick into it, do suggest a
lowest-cost HP Officejet that allows this.   I don't want to power on a
computer to do scanning

The Officejet Pro 6978 is a unit that would let you do it (currently about $120 US). There are lower end units that have SD slots and second USB ports, but it appears that those are for reading only.
