Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Kodak 5500 Easyshare - Not really EasyShare

I want to print from various mac around the house using my Apple Time Capsule over Airport. Now this should not be a problem as the Time Capsule has a USB port for supporting the printer, but the printer does not like this at all. I can see the printer on the network, but it will not work. It will only support direct printer cable into the Mac.
This is a very big problem for Kodak. They have created the most economical printer and I love the machine, but not able to network is poor. So can anyone offer a solution? I know from reading the Apple and Kodak sites that this is a problem and many people are keen to see a answer to. 
Thanks
Derek

The Kodak printer was developed specifically to be used with other Kodak products. Notice how printing on non-kodak paper will end up with lower quality, and you can't use different brand ink with the printer. Another aspect of the printer that was developed with Kodak products in mind where the printers wireless capabilities. The printer will be finnicky with anything other than the Kodak bluetooth wireless adapter: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=10605&pq-locale=en_US
The only other thing that was designed for it was the Silex Wireless Server: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=12511&pq-locale=en_US

If you get anything else to work with the printer it's either an extreme feat of engineering or luck.

Cannot install firmware


What version of Windows you have? or MAC? Make sure you are downloading the right firmware to your printer otherwise it will not install or even damage the printer!! I updated the firmware on my Kodak 5500 printer and had no problems. Try calling Kodak, 1-800-421-6699, they will be happy to help you.

Networking a mac and a xp computer with a kodak 5500 printer


I'm in the same boat here, I just found out that my new 2008 Mac Pro will not be able to print to my Kodak EasyShare 5500. Unhooking the printer from the Windows machine, so I'll have to print EVERYTHING through a VMWare Fusion (Windows) machine.
It's a shame for Kodak, a nice printer, but without industry standard functionality I really don't see them capturing market share. I will buy elsewhere next time unless they get on the ball, fast!
