Dear Condo1,

I will assumed your printer is connected to your windows Xp Computer.
1. On your XP Computer; install the printer as your local printer with all its drivers installed.
2. Go to your printer folder or your control panel and share the installed printer. XP shared wizard will assist you on this.
3. Make sure your installed printer on your XP is working. Go to properties and print a test page.
4. After insuring your printer is working properly; install the same driver on your Vista or laptop computer, first as a local printer.
5. After insuring that the printer is working properly as a local printer on your vista or laptop; You can check this by connecting the printer to your laptop and printing a test page.
6. Connect the printer back to your XP computer.
7. On your Vista Laptop; add a network printer; the wizard will assist you on this.
8. from the browse option on your wizard locate the shared printer name or the name you gave when you shared the printer on your XP computer. Normally it is in this format: \\Computer name server\printer name.
9. if the wizard was followed correctly you should be able to print from your Vista laptop. You have to choose however your network printer as your default printer in order to print to it.

Hope this help.

Are they both under the same network? Can the pc find the laptop under network connections and vice versa? If not, then right-click my computer, go to properties, go to the tab 'Computer Name' click on the button change, and make it part of a workgroup of your choice of name. Do this for both making them part of the SAME workgroup.
Then, make your printer shared under that workgroup.

This is the problem caused by your Kodak easy share software. All you need is to reinstall the Kodak easy share software, using the orginal cd that you got with your kodak camera. But Before you do remove the old software from your computer.
Windows Vista:

Click Start / control pannel / Programs and features. and look for kodak and remove it.

Windows XP:

Click start / Control Pannel / add and remove programs.

Please rate this solution very high if this was a helpful information.

Will not let me install new printer ESP-5 CD


Kodak printer ESP-5 CD version 3.2 is not compatible with Vista. You will need to upgrade to Firmware 4.3 Windows XP/Vista from Kodak Printers. The drivers may be found here:

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.

Can I use my Kodak 5300, installed as my network printer on a desktop running Windows XP with my new laptop running Vista? If so, do I run the install disk (with Vista drivers) on the laptop or what?


you should be able to as long as there are Vista drivers available.

make sure you first share your printer from the desktop it is attached to. then on the Visa laptop try to Add Printer choosing network printer (as opposed to local printer) and browse for the shared printer. Vista should tell you it has to install software so allow it to. Have the disk ready (does it have Vista drivers on it do you know?).

Word of caution: Vista's a little quirky with networked printers so you may have to delete the printer on the laptop and add it back if it doesn't work the first time (I had to do that even though all machines involved were Vista :/ ).

Cheers.

How do I ge my pictures from kodak easy share to my screen sver


Just save your pictures to "My Pictures" folder (windows xp) or "Pictures" folder (windows vista).
Then, right click on your desktop and go to Properties (win xp) or Personalize (win vista), then on Screen Saver, select "My picture slideshow" and you will have your pictures as your screensaver.
