Windows 7: Kodak Photo Printer not recognized as printer

Kodak Photo Printer not recognized as printer

I can't get my new laptop to recognize my old Kodak 500 Photo Printer as a printer. It shows up as a "device" instead, and so I can't print to it. Has anyone else had this problem and found a fix?

What driver did you install? There is no Win 7 driver on the Kodak site for your printer but the Vista driver should work. There's also a firmware update that you may need to install but you won't be able to do that until you get the computer to recognize the printer. Kodak Photo Printer 500

Thanks!

Great! That worked. And I didn't have to install the firmware update, but I may do that anyway since I do have a Nikon. Thanks for the help!
