Go to Kodak's web site (here) and download the driver for your Operating System.

...and while you're on it: download the firmware as well (if you need to update it) and save a copy of the manual on your computer. That might come handy anytime...;-)

If you have more questions or need assistance, just come back here and leave a comment.

I cant get kodak 5100 drivers to install


If they do not have a driver on the website specifically for Windows Vista, you could try a Windows XP driver and see if it is compatible. If not, you will not be able to use the printer without the specific Driver software. Hope this helps.

Software Installation problem gets stuck - all in one Kodak ESP3 printer


I have a 6 year old Dell with XP, plenty of hard drive and memory. I could not scan using the software, I went on the Kodak website and followed the Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair which nothing worked, including the Kodak Clear Utility they reccomend for ridding your system of the software, it just locked up at the end.
So, I spent several hours on the phone with Technicians trying to uninstall and reinstall the ESP3 software. None of their methods worked even step by step manually un-installing every file and folder...
