Invalid Handle error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just purchased an HP Photosmart All in One Printer 6180. I hooked this 
    printer up to my wireless network at home. It connects fine, gets an ip and 
    does all its functions normally expect one. This printer has card slots. When 
    you insert a card, it is support to come up in COMPUTER as a drive and you 
    are supposed to be able to access it there. Well, it does come up as drive Z. 
    I double click on that drive and it says, "Drive Z is not accessible, the 
    handle is invalid". I noticed that if i do properties of that drive, it shows 
    accurate info as far as free and used space. So, im assuming it knows its 
    there but it just wont let me access it. I went to the run line and typed 
    \\"ip of printer"\Memory_Card like HP told me to, it then gave me a very 
    similar error to the first one. It said " \\"ip of printer"\Memory_Card  is 
    inaccessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. 
    Contact the administrator to see if you have correct permissions"
    I do have admin rights on this computer. 
    Can any give me a hand in solving this issue??
