[filmscanners] RE: not enough memory?



I am not familiar with how things work on Macs; but you might want to check
the hard drive partition on which you have your operating system and printer
spooler to make sure that it is unfragmented and that there is enough empty
unused unfragmented space on that partition.  You might want to run a
defragmenting program on that partition.  I would also suggest that 320 MB
of hardware RAM is not really a whole lot of actual Physical RAM on the the
Motherboard for graphics; you might want to turn the virutal memory back on.
I would assume that with the OS using some of the RAM, and Elements using
some of that RAM, and other possible programs trunning in background using
some of that RAM, you may not have enough actual physical RAM left over to
spool the file to the printer driver and then to the printer.  Remember that
the printer spooler will be using a copy of the file which will be in
addition to the temporary copy of the file being used by Elements and the
original archived file stored on the hard drive.  If Elements works at all
like Photoshop, the temporary version it uses will be stored in the scratch
disk; but it may have to use actual hardware RAM if you have a small scratch
disk or one that has run out of enough available unfragmented storage space
on the hard drive.
