Question about Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I've had my Kodak Z612 for about 2 years with no problems. The last couple of times that I hooked the USB cable to the computer to transfer pics, I turn the camera to on as I would normally do, a blue screen flicks quickly with a message I can't read and the screen goes off, (doesn't stay on and give you the percentage of sync completed message). Computer doesn't seem to be finding the camera. No problems with taking pictures. Could it be my USB cable is bad? I've charged batteries but never bought new ones so thought that might also be a problem, but it doesn't affect any other features of the camera.

    My 2 ear old Kodak Z612 always worked great until a month ago. Now the USB cable connection inside the camera is failing. I can still get it to work only by applying angular pressure towards the front of the camera, othewise the USB device is not recognized by the computer. Is there a simple fix to this? Is this going to require soldering or parts replacement?

I am using a Kodak USB cable to transfer my pics


It's not the cable. You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

My kodak easyshare c913 turns of when hooked up to usb


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.

I cant download pictures to my computur


You are supposed to plug the USB in FIRST then turn on the camera, the lens IS NOT supposed to pop out while hooked up this way. Then you need to open the Kodak software. Kinda sucks and a PITA to use. My older Kodak (about 4 years) when plugged to the cable would be recognized as a removable hard drive just as a flash drive and it was obviously super simple to move the pictures to folders in your computer. Now so easy with this new camera, you have to open the Easy Share software, then it transfers them into a folder it makes up labels with the current date, within a folder on your hard drive. then you can move them in the main folder you wanted them in, then delete the one it made up. It won't, (or I haven't found how) transfer pics straight to an existing folder.
Screw that, my printer has multi-media card slots, I just pop the SD card from the printer and pop it in the media slot just like a flash drive.
I deleted all Kodak software from my computer, waste of time.

First time transferring photos in camera to computer for emailing


You don't need the cd for instruction. When the usb cable is attached to the camera it is viewed as an extra drive. You can open that and transfer any pic you want.

Kodak c613 camera


camera should have had a usb cable in package-simply plug cable into camera and usb port and computer should recognize and offer to start transfer-if not use a memory card reader to download pics also works great and doesn't waste batterys on camera while you download
