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 Kodak.com (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 kodak.com (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.
