Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer
I did a clean install of W7 Beta (LOVE IT!!), but now Kodak 5100 will not print. Easy Share program loads and works to calibrate, scan, etc, but when I try to print, I get an error message and Explorer has to restart. I have tried to increase virtual memory, but still get the error. I know it is probably due to W7, but I am using Vista drivers that work on almost everything else. Lots of blogs and posts about similar problems with Vista and Kodak printers, but not many solutions.
I've had the same problem for some time, but recently found a fix.
Those sneaky folks at Kodak updated their Vista driver for the ESP
series, and it works with Windows 7 now. Oddly enough they haven't
advertised this fact, but it works none-the-less. Now, you're going to
have to uninstall the Kodak Home Center, the driver and anything else
associated with Kodak. You need to manually go through the Program
Folder and delete anything Kodak. Make sure you set explorer to show
hidden files/directories, and go to Program Data and delete any thing
Kodak. Finally go to users appdata and delete anything Kodak in all
the sub folders there. Then download and install the new May 1 drivers
from the Kodak site:
Note: They are the Windows Vista drivers, but they do work on my Windows 7 machine.
You'll also notice that they've updated their installer program.
Hope this works for you, and if it does spread the word!
