Question about Kodak EasyShare Photo Printer 500
Hi there, Having followed the manufacturer's instructions (from the manual), and having tried to install and re-install this printer to use via Bluetooth, I am having no luck. I can get to a point where it SEES the printer, but will bonk out as it says "Driver Not Installed" -- well, the driver IS installed to use it via USB, but it won't let me add a new driver version via BT. I can even get to a point where I am asked for the PIN to pair the BT device. Still, it won't go further than that. Has anyone experienced this problem? More importantly, does anyone have suggestions for how to either make the wizards work or create a driver manually? I'd really appreciate it. We love the printer and I would like to make it easier for my wife so that she can print without a cable (a luxury, I know). thanks, NEM
I have the same problems, and I can't seem to get in touch with Kodak. I even was able to update the printer's firmware, but still can't print with it, USB or BT.

NEM, Are you logged in as root or administrator? You may want to start from scratch. Wireless is sensitive. Uninstall the printer and reset the bluetooth settings. Then reinstall. Make sure your speakers aren't to close to the printers...trans/rec window. Tim

Back up any important files already on your G4's hard drive. A factory
restore completely wipes the system of all files you've created so, if
possible, make sure you have another copy of all your files, images, music,
Connect your G4 to its charger. Restoring the computer is a delicate
process that erases and reinstalls the most basic and important files of your
system. If the computer runs out of battery before the restoration is complete,
files may be damaged or left uninstalled. The result of this varies from having
to restart the process completely to permanent dysfunction of your computer.
Play it safe. Make sure you have plenty of battery left and the computer is
plugged into the wall.
Locate your Mac OS X Install CD/DVD. If you have lost the original disc
or never received one (a common problem when purchasing used computers), there
are a few options to consider. The first is to ask around; if you have friends
or family with a Mac computer they may still have their CD. It would be usable on
your computer. If this option fails, look online for a download of the
installation CD. Some sites offer installation CDs for all kinds of computers,
including the G4.
Insert the install disc into your computer's disk drive. Once visible,
click the "Install Mac OS X" button. Follow the on-screen prompts to
set up your computer preferences and begin installation.
Select a destination disc for the installation. This is typically the "Macintosh
HD" icon. Next, click "Options," and follow the rest of the
on-screen prompts/instructions. After this, the software is installed. The
computer should reset itself or can be manually reset by holding down the power

You must have administrator privileges to complete these steps.
Note: If your connection times out, save the installer package to your desktop. (Click the link for your Mac OS X machine, and then click Save.) Double-click the file to start the installation.
