USB or Thumb Drive Not Detected by the Lexmark CS310, CS410, CS510, CX310, CX410, and CX510 Printers


The Lexmark CS310, CS410, CS510, CX310, CX410, and CX510 printers have a USB direct interface slot (or port) that allows the user to print by simply inserting a USB memory device (such as a Thumb Drive)into the slot. However, in certain scenarios, when a USB memory device is connected into the printer, it does not detect the attached device.

If you are having problems locating the USB port, please refer to your printer's User's Guide.


1Make sure the USB drive you are using is either on the list of supported drives or is compatible with the printer.

If you are not sure, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

2If possible, try a different (and compatible) USB drive with the printer to confirm that the USB drive is not the cause of the issue.
3If issue persists, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for other troubleshooting suggestions.
