Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My Kodak printer is not being recognized by my computer
Are you running windows Vista? Was the printer working at one time? If using Vista try this. Open Control panel, open system. Click on hardware tab, click device manager button. Scroll down till you see the yellow ! point. Right click on it once & choose update driver (a left click). A pop-up window will open. Choose No not at this time, click next. Click Install from a list or specific location. Click the Browse button. Scroll to your C:\ drive & click on it. Scroll down to the folder Window\system32 & click on it once. Click OK. With any luck windows Vista will re-find your USB & your printer.
Lastly, Microsoft may have created a fix in Vista update (KB940199). So run Windows Update just to be sure.
Please drop by & let me know if this helped.
Good luck fosstone!
Have a good day.

Try this, Disconnect the USB printer connection.
Remove the printer from the printer list. The list should be empty.
Re-boot your computer.
Check and make sure their are no other printers in list.
Find your install disks for the printer.
If you do not have a install disk, go to HP and download the printer installation files.
Install the software and do not plugin the printer until it is asked for.
After you install the new drivers and software the printer should be seen by the computer.

The printer no longer has it's driver installed. Unfortunately this printer doesn't have a driver for 7 so your only option is to try to install the driver for XP.
