Hello Gerald, Do you mean after uploading the photos to your PC ? Try to format the card using the camera set up menu and see if this helps, sounds like the card got corrupted during the upload.

SOURCE: I have a Toshiba 8 GIG memory card. I used it

When you removed the card from the computer, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" procedure? Also, you should never wait until your card is full before run the risk of the card becoming corrupted. Your options now...1. Get a separate card reader and see if you can download your pics with it.2. If not, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak Picture kiosk machine. Insert your card and you should be able to see all your pics. From there, you can make a cd of them. Then, format your card in your camera to return it to factory specs.

Reset switch on memory card

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I just got the Kodak Easyshare c142 for Christmas, I have tried 3 new sd memory cards and the camera says they are all unreadable.

Your camera can support SD or SDHC memory cards to 32GB beyond that the camera Firmware can not read it. If you are under the 32GB which by the way is a huge massive unnecessary size for this camera the I'd expect two things are holding you up first is the protection switch on the side of the SD/SDHC card I'll include a diagram. This annoying little switch must be i the forward position to read and write to the card.

Also you need to format the memory card to the camera Formatting cleans the surface and prepare the card to work compatibly with the camera. Deleting pictures one by one does remove the picture but it also leaves a bit of information behind and Formatting removes all this unnecessary information. This also means that the memory card should be formatted each time you download pictures to the computer hard Drive

First diagram is the lock switch.
This is a screen shot of the formatting sequence found on page 33 of your manual

All memory cards need to be formatted to the camera they are going to be used in. By doing this cleans the card and makes it ready to work properly in your camera. After using the card and downloading the pictures to the computer the memory card should be formatted again to give a clean card to put more pictures on. The SD cards also have a lock so you need to make sure that this lock is in the unlock position before installing it in the camera. On the upper left corner you will see a small white switch make sure this has been slide forward toward the top edge (towards the gold contacts) Insert it in the camera and close the door see picture.


Using the set up menu page 32 of you manual will show you how to get to the format menu


Page 33 has the format sequence to follow


Hope this was a help Robert in Canada

The card may have become corrupted. Use a separate card reader and download any pictures from the card. Then, insert it into the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

How do I import pictures on computer inestead of sharing with facebook or email I have kodak c142

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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
