so, i bought this printer / scanner off of woot for $50...a great deal in other words.
when i went to install the kodak easyshare 5000 series software off the cd, it turned out the disc had drivers for a logitech quickcam.
kind of ironic actually, that this printer / scanner -- which is really nice for $50 -- had to be dumped by kodak because someone burned the wrong image on all of their software cds.
their loss is my gain though, as it shouldn't be that hard to track down the drivers somewhere on this "series of tubes" we call the "internets".
