1. You must buy a copy of Windows XP (Home or Pro); the best prices appear to be for Home (but it has some restrictions on networking to other computers), and the Upgrade versions, but you can also buy Professional and "Full" system, if you wish.

2. Run the Windows CD you get, and follow the "Install" and "Upgrade" instructions posted on the screen.

3. If you're not comfortable doing this yourself, ask around your neighborhood for someone who's done it before...preferably someone who's done it LOTS of times.

Where can I get a driver for this printer as I

Microsoft's "Product Lifecycle" for Windows ME indicates that it has not been supported, for a few years; i.e., any "security-holes" in it have remained unfixed. So, it's time to look online ( for a "Windows 2000 Upgrade" CD-ROM and license-key. Upgrade.
Then, you can access and download the Windows 2000 driver for your printer.

Esp 3250 just upgraded to win 7 and plugged printer to usual usb bu keep getting . warning bidirectional support disabled. never had a problem before

I just looked at the Kodak website and could only find the following reference - it is for windows xp but you could try and see if it will work with windows 7.

For WINDOWS 2000 and XP Operating Systems:
  1. Temporarily disable the Windows firewall:
    1. Select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Windows firewall.
    2. Disable the firewall and click OK.
  2. For WINDOWS 2000: Select Start > Settings > Printers. For WINDOWS XP: Select Start > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Right-click the KODAK EASYSHARE Printer Dock, and then select Properties.
  4. Select the Ports tab.
  5. Clear the "Enable bidirectional support" check box.
  6. Click Apply, and then click OK.
  7. Check for correct operation.
  8. Restart the computer.
Hope that helps.

Unless you're installing the software on Mac OS9, or Windows 2000 or earlier, the original installation disc isn't going to do you any good. Drivers are available here for Windows XP and earlier and Mac OS9 (there are no drivers available for Mac OS X). Be sure and read all notes (when you click on a driver download link), and get the upgrades for Windows 2000 or Windows XP SP2 if you're installing on either of these systems. Good luck!
