The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
With Windows XP it is possible to connect the camera and transfer pictures without using the Kodak drivers as contained in EasyShare software. Windows XP contains built-in drivers (Windows Imaging Acquisition or WIA drivers) that will recognize your digital camera.
It is a good temporary alternative to using EasyShare if there are issues with installing the software, as it will at least enable you to transfer pictures to your computer. You will however lose the ability to upload any files or information to the camera, such as: -firmware updates -e-mail address books -the Camera Favorites album which is a feature of some of our newest cameras
Simply connect your camera and use the Device Manager to configure Windows on how to work with the camera:
-Right-click on My Computer and choose "Manage". Click [Device Manager] in the left pane. -Click the plus (+) sign in front of "Imaging devices". The camera should be listed below it. -Right-click on the camera and select "Update Driver". -If you have installed Windows XP Service Pack 2, you will be prompted, "Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software?" Select "No, not this time". Click [Next]. -Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click [Next]. -Select "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install". Click [Next]. -Select "Digital Still Camera". Click [Next]. -Check that a program selection window appears. Select "Always use this program for this action".
Now your camera should be accessible via My Computer under "Scanners and Cameras".
