    Go to the manufacturer's website and look up the specs for that model.

    No normal printer etc. has a hard drive.

    The only ones that may, just possibly, are the filing-cabinet sized industrial grade ones, intended to be shared by hundreds of users & do copying etc. at the same time.

    You give the model number of that printer to the customer support people of the maker, and they will tell you.

    Source(s): Most of my multi-function printers that can do stand alone copying have RAM, not a hard drive. The ones that cannot do stand alone copying use the computer's memory device (RAM or HDD).

    if it cost over $1000 new, it has a hard drive.

    ...as long as it's not over a decade old.

    Printers don't need a hard drive.

    It would say that in your owner's manual.
