Re: Did I lose all of my pics
First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.
You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.
Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:
If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many. One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

YOUR CAMERA MAY NOT BE CONNECTED? IF IT IS CONNECTED, THAN CLICK ON START, TYPE IN HP IMAGE ZONE, CLICK ON THAT PROGRAM GO TO PROPERTIES AND UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE.
YOU MAY HAVE TO UN-INSTALL YOUR SOFTWARE FOR HP IMAGE ZONE...ONLY IF YOU HAVE THE DISK...THEN RE-INTSTALL AGAIN? WHEN UN-INSTALLING YOU WILL NEED TO UN-INSTALL ALL FILES SO SAVE YOUR PIC'S ELSEWHERE ON YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE UN-INSTALLING!
IF SO...MAKE SURE YOU SAVE YOUR PIC'S IN YOUR DOCUMENTS OR ON YOUR DESKTOP IN A ZIP FILE, SO NOT TOO LOSE THEM.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CAMERA IS NOT HOOKED UP TO YOU COMPUTER WHILE INSTALLING SOFTWARE FOR YOU HP IMAGE ZONE!
SOFTWARE HAS TO BE INSTALLED FIRST!
THEN SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER, HOOK YOUR CAMERA UP TO YOUR COMPUTER, TURN COMPUTER BACK ON...IF THE COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE OR DETECT THE HARDWARE FOR THE CAMERA, THEN YOU'LL HAVE TO GO INTO YOUR COMPUTER AT THE START BUTTON AND GO TO INSTALL HARDWARE!
IF YOU HAVE THE DISK, YOU CAN ALSO TRY JUST PUTTING IT IN YOUR HARD-DRIVE AND IT WILL GIVE YOU OPTIONS OF UPDATING ETC,.
This is a formatting problem (in other words, it's likely you did not format the card in your camera when you first got it). First thing to do is back up all photos from the card onto your computer. Afterwards, format the card IN THE CAMERA using the camera's format feature. This will correct the problem from reoccurring in the future, but will also erase the card! So again, only do this after backing up your photos.
First of all, stop hooking the camera to the computer to download pics. That's not the best way and obviously, your computer doesn't like it. Get a separate card reader and use it instead of your camera. This one is only $13 at Walmart.
does ur camera have a sound card and does your computer have a card reader, if so you can download your pics right onto the computer, if not you can purchase a card reader that hooks to your computer. if your usb cable doesnt work maybe try a different one or a different computer maybe the usb port has gone bad. on the computer
If you format, you will lose everything...format means erase and optimize. Take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. It will usually read all the pics on a card and you can make a cd of them on the machine.
Try opening the Kodak software first, then turn the camera on. I've found that you need the Kodak program to transfer the pictures from the camera. I personally do not like this, my old camera (also Kodak) would act like a plane old flash card/removeable device, this new one doesn't.
Anyhow, I find it super easy to just take the SD card out and pop it into the media slot in my printer. Then just open explorer and it's there just like any other hard drive or CD/DVD drive and transfer them to where ever you like.
If your printer or computer doesn't have a slot for SD cards you can get one that plugs into a USB port, pretty cheaply at any store that sells computer products.
You probably had a bad USB connection that supllied to much voltage (or had a bad ground or reverse polarity) to the camera and shorted out the circuit board. Disconnect all cables. Hook up to a charger and try again. If this does not work, the camera is fried, sorry.
Unfortunately, there is no way to format your card without losing any saved pictures. Sometimes, if you insert your card into other cameras or printing kiosks at walgreens or target, it will work. it's a long shot though. Chances are, you may have to lose your saved pictures :(
