    Thanks. I followed your advice, proceeded past the the initial problem and after the removal of other USB devices the printer has been recognised. Unfortunately when I click on the large icons to print or scan I get the message: -- UNHANDLED EXCEPTION MSG_OPENDS failed with results 1 and condition code 5.

    Cannot install drivers. Windows XP scans the disk and comes up empty. I've downloaded all the upgrades, and still nothing.

If you receive that error there might be something wrong with home center or some components of your computer so to check, try to scan using camera and scanner wizards and try to print using other software and when it does then try to uninstall and reinstall the software to see if it will open if still fails then uninstall and reinstall .net framework 2.0.. Note: make sure you are the administrator of your PC

During the install, dont connect the printer when it tells you to. close the window that askes you to connect the usb cable to the printer and PC. The install should finish.

Leave the printer disconected.

Reboot the PC. If easyshare was installed you have to set it up.. If you did not select Web Install during the install then, after reboot and easyshare setup, open the Home Center software. There should be a message saying there are software updates availible. If not click the [?] on the top right to open the side pannel and click the bottom link that says check for updates. Run and install the updates. after its done then connect the printer.

If you did not need updates then try uninstalling and downloading the software directly from (link near bottom of this message)

If the printer still is not detected then try another USB port on your PC .. the PC ports on the back of the PC that are directly connected to the motherboard are the best. You can also try a new usb cable, or hook up a powerd USB hub between the printer and the PC. Also try unhooking all other USB devices (not printer and keyboard) then connect the printer.

If you could not get the updates through the home center you can get them at (link bellow)

I hope this helps. If you still have issues respond to this with any changes or what happened when you tried each step.

Good luck!

Rpc server is unavailable when installing printer

According to the error message, I assume that the spooler service cannot find out the printer on the network.
You may set the startup type of Printer Spooler service to Manual or Delayed Start for a test.
You could go to Customer support- just dial +1(800)243-0051 Toll Free.

I have just installed a kodak esp 5210 but although the machine sounds like it is printing there is no actual print. I have double checked print head and cartridges and all appear to be installed...

Hi, If you not installed the printer software , it will not print, But if you have installed it properly and still did not print ,you will have to un-install the printer and re-install the drivers (software )again.

After re-installing the drivers , You will need to use the manual as a guide when installng the printer.

You can download manual from the below link.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using fixya...

I have just purchased an new computer and am running windows7 on a 64bit machine. I have tried several times to install the Kodak software from the disk provided with my printer which worked OK on my last...

32 bit and 64 bit drivers are not compatible. So for 64 bit operational system you have to install 64 bit drivers for your Kodak Easyshare 5100. I found link for you:
I am strongly suggesting uninstall everything what are you installed ignoring warnings about incopatibility before installing proper drivers! Good luck! :-)

In windows 7 after installing driver from my usb modem windows is aking for driver n sayd driver not installed

Here is how to Install them so they work. Download your XP/Vista driver you wish to install. If it's in a zip/rar file then extract it to your desktop.
You should have a simple
.exe file sitting on your desktop to install the drivers, as normal for XP.
Right click the .exe file and select "Properties".
Then select the tab called "Compatibility"
Now check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Make sure "Windows XP Service Pack 2" is highlighted.
Now apply the settings and run the installer.
This should work for most drivers, but not all

I work for kodak and this is actually a very easy fix.
The MAC OS 10.4.11 won't install off the cd only the website.
The cd sees that the OS is 10.4.1 not 10.4.11 just a glitch and the fix is installing from the website.

And no you need at least 10.4.8 to run the kodak printer on macs.
