Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I assume you mean that the connectors of the cable you are using aren't fitting either into the the laptop. I went to HP.com and looked up the printer's specifications. It seems like a USB 1.1 (but not a USB 2.0) cable should work. Here's the reference:
Since you say the cable doesn't attach to your laptop, make sure the USB connector is correct side up before trying to insert it (I apologize if this seems too obvious, but I've spent plenty of time wondering why a USB cable wouldn't fit into this port or that only to realize that I was holding the connector upside down).
As far as the memory card error, there are a number of different causes, mostly based on the card manufacturer. You say it's a Sony card, so that narrows it down some. I found a web page that addresses general memory card error issues:
Resolving a Card Access Error
I'm going to post links to the several other web pages I found that are related to card access errors, just to make sure you have as much information as I can provide:
Card Access Error when using Lexar CompactFlash
Compact Flash Card Not Recognized by Printer
Card Not Recognized Error Displays on Control Panel
Memory Stick Memory Card Error
Most of these don't have to do with your Sony card, but it couldn't hurt to go over them if the suggestions in the initial link don't work out. Sorry to bombard you with so much information, but you never know what piece of data might hold the key to resolving this issue.
Good luck and post back your results.
