Why Vista is Not Recognizing My Kodak Printer?

I have got a Kodak printer for my home needs. I borrowed it from my elder sister who was getting an upgrade. I use a Windows Vista PC at home. When I connected the printer to my computer nothing happened. For some reason my Vista is not able to recognize my Kodak printer. Is there a way to fix it? Kindly help me out here!
