Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I installed the software and it said that it installed sucessfully. However, whenever my printer is plugged into the usb port, my computer doesn't recognize either my flash drive or my Ipod. However, if I unplug the printer from the computer, they both work again. If anyone has any solutions it would be appreciated.
Even better connect the Printer to the USB hub and the Ipod to the PC. Its a better idea to isolate the printer. Also if you have another USB cable you can use for the printer that might help as well. There are some bumb usb cables out there.

Ipods and the Kodak printer are both high power devices. There are known issues on common intel motherboards with multiple high power usb devices. You may just have this bad luck, and your motherboad printer ipod combo just wont work at the same time. The best advice I can offer you is to get a High Speed Powerd USB hub. Connect either the IPOD or the printer to the hub and connect the other directly to a USB port on the PC.

Tips for a great answer:
In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.
