    Thank you for the update notification, Cal Bear '66!! You are far more
    reliable than Kodak about Updates!

  4. I'm hoping Cal Bear '66 can help Sun Devil '76. Go Pac 10.

    I just installed this crummy easyshare 6.4.100 hoping the crashes would go
    away and I could actually use the 'setup' button to establish an online photo
    service that's not kodakgallery. I'm using vista home premium. I've used an
    old version of easyshare for years on my old gateway and never had problems.
    Now with my new dell laptop with vista and current easyshare, I can't order
    prints from a service.

    I have been trying for days now. I select a bunch of photos, click 'order
    prints'. It's smart enough to know I have not selected an online service so
    it tells me to click on setup. I do that and after about 30 seconds it comes
    back with a msg box saying words to the effect that kodak server not
    available. I believed that about a week ago but tonight after installing the
    latest 6.4.100 from the kodak website, I can still make it crash at will by
    right clicking on any photo and I still get the msg box about server not
    available. I did a restart after the installation of 6.4.100 and the 'About'
    msg box says I have 6.4.100 installed.

    Thanks for any help.

    any suggestion on how to get this software to load? it stalls at 93% which
    leaves off the printer dock & camera drivers. I've removed and installed too
    many times, it won't load. Can't figure out what is keeping these drivers
    from loading. Kodak's only answer is to download the latest software or load
    it in safe mode. They seem to be clueless. I'm running xp w/sp2.

    you guys rock.. thanks to all the great suggestions I was finally able to
    load the EasyShare software. I'm now able to load my pictures directly from
    the camera but still can't send pictures back to the printer dock but it's
    progress. I'll keep reading, you guys are great!

    Okay, I'll bite - why would you need to send pictures "back to the camera
    dock"? Do you mean you removed pictures from the camera after downloading
    them onto Easy Share? Or, are you attempting to download other pictures to
    your camera?

    I have pictures loaded on my pc and want to send them to the printer dock but
    the pc can't find the .inf file so the printer dock is not an option to print

    What is the model number of your Kodak printer dock?

    model # is g600. nifty little printer if you want to print from your camera
    but would really like to print from the pc and avoid the easyshare software
    if possible. great camera, just didn't do the research and sales people
    didn't enlighten me about needing a docking station to recharge the camera
    batteries.. or that the easyshare software was such a pain. I have
    alternate software but want to use the printing option. thanks for your
    help, kodak is useless.

    You can download and install printer drivers AND a FIRMWARE upgrade that will
    enable you to print from the Kodak G600 -- both updates will be necessary for
    you to print to the G600 from within Vista:

    Please read and follow the instructions TO THE LETTER (especially the firmware

    may work with Vista but I'm running xp. I've already done this but it
    downloads the drivers into a .cab file. XP is looking for a .inf file and
    don't know how to make xp understand. had no problem loading the firmware
    onto the camera but it didn't help the pc to printer problem. I purchased a
    2 mg usb memory card, can load the pictures onto this and plug it into the
    printer, it's a workable work around. I give up for now, thanks for the help.

    The firmware update is for the PRINTER not the camera.

    When you downloaded the DRIVER, did you look for the install_easyshare.exe
    and double click it to run the installation procedure.

    Here is the link for the XP firmware and printer driver updates:

    Download the file onto your computer.

    Locate and double-click the install_easyshare.exe file to begin the

    NOTE: During this installation, only the drivers install, not EASYSHARE

    When the Setup Wizard screen appears, click Next.

    Select Modify, and click Next.

    When the Custom Setup screen appears, verify that Up-to-date is selected for
    Kodak EasyShare printer dock or photo printer, and click Next.

    When the Ready to modify the program screen appears, click Next. When the
    installation is done, a Congratulations, the software is now installed message
    If you have a Printer Dock Plus Series 3 or Photo Printer 500, visit the APPLE
    Web site and download BONJOUR Software free of charge.
    NOTE: You must install BONJOUR Software on your computer before you can use your
    printer as a wireless device.

    Thank you for such detailed instructions, your time and help is appreciated.
    The problem turned out to be the need for a file called microsoft installer
    3.1. Once this was installed and the system rebooted I was able to run the
    modify feature on the easyshare software and load the printer drivers. I
    then followed your suggestions on the firmware but what I had was newer than
    what the web site offered. Thanks for all your help but problem is now
    resolved and everything is working correctly.

    I am trying to install a wireless card on my Easyshare Printer Dock Plus
    Series 3 but I need to configure my ip IP adreess and my router address
    before I start using the wireless card. Now there is suppose to be a
    folder called "Kodak wireless printer setup" inside my Kodak folder but
    is not there. I am using Easyshare software 6.4 and Vista 64. Any help
    will be appreciated. Thanks.
