Re: Epson r320 printer will not read any memory cards

Does the green light come on when you insert a card? Most likely that if it can not read the cards, and it is just not your PC failing to communicate with the card reader, then the mainboard is probably faulty. If it's in warranty get Epson to replace it. If not, you could see if you can source another R320 from eBay, (or similar) that has a different problem and swap the mainboards. You would also need the service utility to do this as you MUST change the print head ID on the new mainboard. Another alternative is to simply buy a cheap card reader and plug it into the USB input port on the printer. If the mainboard is faulty, this may not work though. Still you could then just plug the reader into your PC instead.

Why am I having trouble with my Epson Stylus Photo Printer R320 reading the new SD card that I recently purchased. Printer says that card cannot be used with this printer. ?? Is my printer now obsolete?...

At the time your printer was manufactured, it incorporates/uses what technology is available.

Things to consider, memory cards now comes in different capacity and speed. Your printer's memory card reader can't read cards that uses newer technology.

You can however use your computer's card reader if there is one or purchase a USB memory card reader to download the photos and print them from the computer.

This actually how I print photos since I can do a lot more before sending it to the printer. I use Picasa (free) for quick photo fix and effects.

Below is a chart of memory card capacities that have been tested by Epson. Testing was done before the products were released.
Please use this chart as a general guide line.

Compact Flash 4 GB

Any size of card other than that which is indicated above may work, but is not supported or guaranteed.

Compactflash memory cards

If it will not read ANY type of flash media it would suggest the reader or main board is faulty.

If it reads some type but not others, look down into the card slots with a torch and check to see if any of the pins are bent over. This is a common fault most notably encountered when the machine fails to read CF type cards. You will see two rows of pins in the slot. Chances are one of the pins is bent or been pushed inwards. If you are REALLY steady with your hands you can use a very small (jewelers) screwdriver to straighten the pin. If the pin has receded, it almost impossible to fix it.
