I can not get my kodak hero 5.1 printer to work on my windows xp 64 bit


Turning sharing on or off

The first time you connect to a network, you'll be asked if you want to turn on sharing between PCs and connect to network devices such as printers. Your answer automatically sets the appropriate firewall and security settings for the type of network that you connected to. You can turn sharing on or off at any time.

To turn sharing on or off

  1. hh_ppeic.pngTap or click to view available networks.

  2. Press and hold or right-click the network you're connected to, then tap or click Turn sharing on or off.
    435600ef-5a98-4568-bfa2-28d51981b1e3_13.jpgMenu used to turn sharing on or off

  3. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Yes, turn on sharing and connect to devices for home or small office networks, or when you know and trust the people and devices on the network. This setting allows your PC to connect to devices on the network, such as printers.

    • Choose No, don't turn on sharing or connect to devices for networks in public places (such as coffee shops or airports), or when you don't know or trust the people and devices on the network.
      alertset_warning.png

      Notes

      • Turning sharing on prepares your PC for sharing files and devices on a network. For more information about sharing with other people on your network, see Sharing files and folders on a network or a shared PC.

      • The network sharing setting is only available for WiFi, Ethernet, VPN (non-domain) and dial-up (non-domain) connections. It's unavailable for domain networks. On VPN or dial-up connections, you must connect to the network first, then press and hold or right-click the network name to change the network sharing setting.

      • Turning on sharing changes your firewall settings to allow some communication, which can be a security risk. If you know you won't need to share files or printers, the safest choice is No, don't share or connect to devices.

      • Choosing No, don't turn on sharing or connect to devices blocks the following applications and services from working: PlayTo, file sharing, network discovery and automatic setup of network devices.

About network discovery

Network discovery is a setting that affects whether your computer can see (find) other computers and devices on the network and whether other computers on the network can see your computer. It's one of several settings that are turned on when you turn on network sharing. You can turn network discovery on or off independently of network sharing, but we discourage this. Here's why. If you're connected to a network in a public location and you decide to turn on network discovery but leave network sharing turned off, the network discovery setting will be on for every public network you connect to from then on. This wouldn't be safe. That's why we recommend using the network sharing setting instead.

However, if for some reason you need to turn network discovery on or off independently of the network sharing setting, here's how to do it:

  1. hh_ppeic.pngTap or click to open Advanced sharing settings.

  2. Tap or click the chevron 7d2e0f87-bcfb-44a3-8422-5c9353bcde11_89.jpg to expand your current network profile.
  3. Tap or click Turn on network discovery or Turn off network discovery, then click Save changes. 1f9463c2-c968-47bf-9b4d-939c5d1af477_70.jpg You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.

HOW TO SHARE FILES AND PRINTERS BETWEN WINDOWS 7 AND VISTA With three different...


HOW TO SHARE FILES AND PRINTERS BETWEN WINDOWS 7 AND VISTA

With three different versions of Windows being used now, you’ll probably find yourself trying to share files or printers between them. Today we take a look at how to share files and printers between Vista and Windows 7 machines.
In this example we are on a basic home network using Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit version) and Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 (32-bit version).
Set Windows 7 Share Settings
On the Windows 7 machine we need to set up a few things in Advanced Sharing Settings. First type network and sharing center into the search box in the Start Menu and hit Enter.
1net.png
Then click on Change advanced sharing settings…
3net.png
Now in Advanced Sharing Settings, make sure to turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing. Make sure these are enabled in both the Home or work and Public profiles.
4net.png
Depending on your setup, you might want to turn off password protected sharing. Other wise you’ll need to enter the password for each machine in, which isn’t that big of a deal. Turning it off while you’re setting it up makes things a bit easier though by saving a step.
5net.png
Set Vista Share Settings
On the Vista machine we need to double check and make sure it’s sharing settings are ready to go. Right-click on Network and choose Properties.
2vista.png
The Network and Sharing Center opens up. Under Sharing and Discovery we need to turn on File Sharing, Public Folder Sharing, and Network Discovery.
7vista.png
Also on the Vista machine you might want to turn off password protected sharing … but it’s completely up to you.
5vista.png
Share Files Windows 7 View
Now that we have the correct Settings On each machine, it’s time to put it to the test. Open up Network on the Windows 7 machine, and you should see all of the machines on the network. The Vista machine in this example is VISTAGEEK-PC.
2net.png
There was no need to enter a password to access the Vista machine because password protection is turned off. But now you can go through and see the User Shared folders. In this example both public and Users directories are shared.
6net.png
Share Files Vista View
Now on the Vista computer, double click on Network and you should see the Windows 7 machine (where in this instance it’s MYSTICGEEK-PC).
89vista.png
I enabled password protection on the Windows 7 machine so we can take a look at the login screen that will be displayed before connecting.
6vista.png
Then you’ll see the folders and devices that are shared. Here you can see the HP printer connected to the Windows 7 machine is available.
90vista.png
And you can continue browsing through all available shared folders and files.
88vista.png
Printer Sharing
As we showed above, you can see the printer connected to Windows 7. Let’s make sure we can connect to it and print a test document. In Vista click on the Start menu and type printers into the search box and hit Enter.
95print.png
Right-click on the shared printer and select Properties.
96print.png
Under the General tab click on the Print Test Page button.
97print.png
The following message is displayed while the test page prints out on the printer connected to your Windows 7 machine.
98print.png
Another test you might want to perform is opening a test document and making sure you can print that to the Windows 7 printer.
100default.png
Provided everything prints out successfully you might want to make it the default printer.
99default.png
Troubleshooting
If your machines aren’t able to see each other or the printer isn’t working…here are a few steps you might want to use to determine where the problem is.
Double check to make sure Network Discovery and File and Print Sharing is enabled on both machines as shown above.
4vista.png
In this example both machines are connected to a Belkin home wireless router and IP addresses are dynamically assigned. If you are using Static addresses make sure you can ping the IP address of each computer. If not, double check the assigned IP Address and cabling of each computer…
8ping.png
If the printer isn’t working, double check to make sure you have the latest drivers for each OS installed.

HP LaserJet 1022 has been installed on a PC (WIN 7 x 64), shared option checked, but 4 other PCs do not locate the printer on the network. (3 pcs with Win7 x 64, 1 with Win XP x 32). Can you suggest...


go into the properties of your network connection, and click change advanced sharing options

supertech_11_4.jpg

Sorry for the lousy screen capt there, but you should get the idea of where everything should be set.
password protected sharing off is important
turn on network discovery is the other really important one
and of course, enable file and printer sharing.

If you get lost, post a reply here!

Print sharing


No matter how you slice it, if you want to share the printer, you will be creating a network. If I remember this printer correctly, it has an Ethernet port to connect to a network or USB to connect ot a computer. If your router supports wired connections, you can connect it there and just inistall drivers on each device and selec tthe network option. If not, you will probably want to connect it via USB to your desktop machine and enable print sharing on that machine. Te enable printer sharing, open up the Network and Sharing Center. In the Sharing and Discovery section, turn on the option for Printer Sharing. You will still need to install the XP driver on the netbook and select the network option, but give it the proper network location (ie.\\mycomputer\this printer).

Setting up a new computer on a wireless network


hello Danj29,

I suggest you make sure that your Vista is configured to connect to a private network. To do this follow these steps:

1. Click Start, right-click Network, click Properties.
-The Network Sharing Center window displays the network type in parenthesis after the network name.

2. To the right of the network name and type click Customize.
3. In the Set Network Location dialog box, click Private, and then click Next.
4. In the Successfully set network settings dialog box, click Close

By changing your network location type to private, network discovery is automatically enabled in the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window. The following additional file and printer sharing options must be manually enabled:
  • File sharing
  • Public folder sharing
  • Printer sharing
  • Password protected sharing
When all of these sharing and discovery options are enabled, your computer can:
  • Locate other computers and devices on your home network and have other computers locate your computer
  • Share its folders
  • Share its Public folder
  • Share its printers
  • Require user names and passwords for other computers that connect to the shared folders and printers of this computer
To enable file sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to File sharing.
  2. Within the File sharing settings, click Turn on file sharing, and then click Apply.
To enable public folder sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Public folder sharing.
  2. Within the Public folder sharing settings, click one of the following:
    • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
  3. Click Apply.
To enable printer sharing and share all of your connected printers, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Printer sharing.
  2. Within the Printer sharing settings, click Turn on printer sharing, and then click Apply.
[Optional] To enable password protected sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Password protected sharing.
  2. Within the Password protected sharing settings, click Turn on password protected sharing, and then click Apply.
