Are Memory cards available for Fax Machines ?.

In case not available, It would be useful to have external memory cards interfaced with the Fax machine which will allow faster processing of scanning, fax as well as storage of Scanned documents in Fax memory ?.

Thanks & Regards,

ANSWER: Not sure about the intent of your question.

There are many fax machines with built-in storage.  And, many of them have a USB port which allows external storage using any kind of external memory.  USB Thumb drives could be used just as well.  

Memory storage is relatively cheap now days so it's no big problem for fax machine makers to provide facility for document storage.  It's pretty old product development.

Answer
Imagine large document processing center where it is important to story clients files and catalog them into various storage bins.  A processing center may have any number of clientèle and storage requirements that are Terabytes in size.

Having internal storage for project use; then push them off to external or auxiliary drives whilst other projects from different agencies is worked on.

Governmental agencies, universities, insurance companies, churches and religious organizations, banks and financial institutions all need to keep on file fax copies of handwritten documents for long periods of time with easy access.  

So, there would be a professional market for such augmented stand-alone products.
