Easyshare converted all of my jpgs to easyshare files
When I received some photos from a friend, I had to download the software to view the photos...I mistakenly checked the "yes" box to make Kodak Easyshare my default photo software. It then converted all of my jpg files to easyshare files, and it saves all photos that I open or save as easyshare files. Is there any way to convert the easyshare files back to jpgs? Also, how do I change the default setting from Kodak Easyshare without deleting the software and losing all of my pictures that are saved as easyshare files?
Re: Easyshare converted all of my jpgs to easyshare files
I'm not sure how to change the default picture program... but i can tell you that you won't lose pictures if the easyshare program is deleted. it's just an extra program to view/edit pics.... the actual pics are located in a generic folder somewhere on your computer. click properties on one of the pics in easyshare, and see where it's located. then just go to that folder through windows....
hope i helped a little, sorry i don't have the solution for the other part

You can find the software at the camera manufacturer site. Or just type in the camera model in your internet search bar with the words "software download" and it should bring you right to the software to be downloaded.
Press the SAVE button, find a place on your hard drive and save the file. Double click the install_easyshare.exe file and it will install the file. Follow the instructions below.

Uninstall any existing Kodak EasyShare software. Google around for Kodak EasyShare software and include the model of your camera in the search. You may have downloaded a later or earlier version of the software that doesn't support your camera.
Kodak EasyShare software is just a photo-viewing software which isn't really necessary in case you don't know.
The EXIF date and the file system date are two totally separate things. As long as you use tools that maintain the EXIF data you will still have the original information.
I rename my photos using XNview so that the name of the file is based on the EXIF date. i.e. <Date Taken[y-m-d]>(xxx).jpg where xxx is the three digits from the original filename.

First of all, it's not a good idea to leave that many pictures on a card for any length of time...they may get corrupted. Download to your computer more often. As for your present problem, take the card to a store that has a Kodak picture maker machine (like Walmart). Usually, all the pictures will show up ok and you can print them or even make a cd of them.
connect the cables, then wait for the computer to ask you what you want to do with the photosand select the option that says download and view photos with (the name of your photoviewing software, if you dont have one then download picasa from google for free)

Most files you download say from I tunes are "protected" files. They will not transfer. You have to convert it to an MP3 file. I found a free converter on the web that will convert your protected files to MP3 file then you can download it to your photo frame. i just bought one today and it took me ALL DAY to figure this out. What a PAIN! good luck!
