Just an idea: Does the printer contain some kind of card reader?
It is possible that the printer could have been changed into a
mode where it only appears as a DA storage device to the system,
maybe this change of state can be done using the "operator panel"
on the printer?
If you haven't changed something on your PC, check the printer.
Maybe there's a way to reset the thing to revert to default
