Re: camera wont let me get my pics off it
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 any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card,
then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory
card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB
port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass
Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on
the memory card and copy the photos to your computer.
Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You
can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your
memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any
If I am to understand you correctly you are telling me you are using Kodak software that was installed in a used computer that you bought. If this is the case then you need to uninstall this program and install the Kodak software that came with YOUR CAMERA. The program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your camera !
I suggest that you install a photo management program like Picasa from Google.
Picasa will allow you to not only view the pictures, but will help you organize and share them as well.
Picasa is free and available in a Windows and Mac version.
To use Picasa, (click here) to go to the download site.
At the download site, click the "Download Picasa..." button and select "Open" in the download dialog box.
After Picasa has been downloaded to your machine and opened, follow the on-screen directions until Picasa is installed.
After installation, start up the Picasa program and allow it to search your computer for pictures.
After a few minutes, it will find all of your pictures including the one that you transferred from your camera.
You will then be able to arrange and view your pictures as you like.
It wont break anything. They just want you to use their program!
if you connect the camera via the usb cord that came with it your computer will detect it and you can access it in MY COMPUTER icon.. just explore the new drive that shows up..might be a pic of your camera or say removable disk F, G, H etc...
In this drive will be the folders that house your pics.. just copy and paste into your desktop and voilla!!!
A digital camera driver allows the camera to communicate with a computer's operating system. Drivers can either be installed to your computer from the Nikon software CD or downloaded from "Digital camera driver download-Windows " Article.
Drivers are installed automatically when the Nikon software is installed. If you have previously installed Nikon software and you have the original CD and want to re-install digital camera drivers. Installing Camera Drivers from the download.
