I haven't used this particular camera but I'm sure it works in a similar fashion to my hp. There should be a setting in the camera allowing it to act as a 'hard drive' and therefore bypassing the SD card altogether to retrieve your pictures. On my camera, it's listed under 'USB Configuration'. It gives a choice of 'Digital Camera' or 'Disk Drive', choose disk drive. You'll of course need to connect your camera directly to your computer via a USB cable, but your pictures should be stored in the camera as well as the SD card. If this doesn't work I would contact the camera's manufacturer as they might have suggestions.

As far as formating the SD card, yes you would lose everything on it and it's probably no good anymore anyway. I would just replace the card so you don't risk losing any future pictures. Always
remember to keep your camera and cards away from any magnets (ie:cell phones, speakers, etc.) because they can erase stored information. Good luck!

My Kodak DX 6490 will not read my 2 Gb or less SD Cards. It keeps recording to the camera memory. I will not play videos onto my digital TV. What should I do?


Hello, Have you tried formatting the memory card with the camera?
If a card is formatted with another camera or if it is new you should format it with the DX6490.Hope this helps.

You can either use a separate card reader to download to your computer, or , take the card to a Walmart store and insert the card into a Kodak Picture Kiosk machine and print the pics or make a cd of them. Then, format the card in the camera.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

Uploading pics to mac from SD card in camera


Have you tried using an external card reader?

They look similar to this at Wal-Mart:
http://i.ehow.com/images/GlobalPhoto/Articles/4794433/120257_Full.jpg

I own a mac and always use an external usb card reader to download my pics and it works great. Also, I know that you need to get your pics off first, but you may need to reformat you card at some point so that it will read faster and work quicker in your camera.

For your software issue, have you tried download the software from kodak's website? The program shouldn't cause your apple to crash. I would try re-installing it from there website.

Memory card says it needs to be formatted but i have pics on it and I need them..please help I will be waiting!


I had the same problem with my 4Gb card that has 750 photos on it. I tried doing different things, however, it did not work. At last I took the card out and blew on its chips, gave it a good shake and put it back. Then, the miracle happened. It could read all my photos. I guess there was some dust that had accumulated on the chips at the back of the card. Hope it can help you, too.
