Question about Digital Cameras

7 Answers

Shortly after opening easy share the picture files a vertical zigzag appears on the pictures and this message appears when left double clicking on picture to view: Kodak easy share can no longer find the file... The file may have been renamed or moved in your windows file system. The easy share file cannot be found on c/ drive. Can pictures be totally lost and irretrievable from computer? Could a flash drive back up of a quick books program have ruined or corrupted the easy share picture files?

    Why is the zigzag line through the pictures?
    I did not find a folder that contained any pictures.

    I will try to find a local computer tech that has the recovery software. Thank you

The easiest solution is to type start>search *.jpg. This will find every picture you have on your hard drive and where they are located. Didn't you upload with a USB cable? There is no 'lost path' I don't even know what that means...DO NOT take it to a local pc repair for data recovery, that equipment and software is in the 10's of thousands and I doubt the local PC Geek Repair has it. They will charge you for looking then say it was not there. They may or may not be in Kodak Folder they could have been moved by mistake. For all these reasons is why you should just do a simple search as I stated above..
Please rate this solution.

Did you back up the quickbooks to the same card the photos are on? it shouldnt have meessed with the photos, but may have corrupted the file structure.

unfortunately, you have permanently lost the files if they are corrupted.

sorry for your luck

You can contact Kodak, but not for warranty. These kinds of ccd problems may be covered by an advisory given for all cameras with Sony ccd units. They may repair the camera free, as I have done with Nikon and Canon on a number of digital cameras of this age. Nikon will require postage to the repair facility, where as Canon will pay both ways if it is the ccd problem. As far as Kodak, that will have to be discussed with Kodak repairs.


The zig zag lines are there due to bad ccd.

Hello There.

In short the path between your pictures and the easy share software is broken. It's most likely that the pictures have been moved to another location on your computer. My suggestion is to run a search on your PC to find your pictures, search for just one of the picture names/numbers and this will tell you where the pictures are on your computer.

Hope this helps.

Easy Share took over all of my pictures and now I can't do anything with them like I used to. If I uninstall East Share will my pictures still be there?


Probably not. Try this....create a folder on your desktop. Open easyshare and select all of your pictures. Drag and drop them into the folder. Double-click the folder to make sure the pictures are there. If they are, then you can uninstall easy share.

Kodak Easy Share C183, how do I change the pixels so I can send and e-mail that won't be enormous when I send several pictures?


Don't change anything in the camera. Use the computer. Right click on a picture file you want to send and choose e-mail. A box will open giving you choices of picture sizes. Choose one and your e-mail will open with the picture attached. Your original will be untouched.

Pictures were taken with my SONY CYBERSHOT 10.1 camera - but there was no memory stick in the camera. Now the picture are in the internal memory. I've tried to delete them, but I get messages that say they...


first of all remove any memory card you may have in the camera.. Then connect the camera to your computer using the USB cable provided. Then Switch on the camera, Once windows has recognised your camera, open up My Computer. There will be a removable disk icon appeared, open it up. Open the DCIM folder, then open the 101_SONY folder. This now has given you access the area where the camera stores you photos. select the first file by left clicking on it, then hold shift and left click on the last file, they should all now be highlighted. Now right click on the last file. and select properties from the menu. On the window that appears, deselect read-only checkbox and click Apply. Your photos will now no longer be write protected and can be deleted.

Hope this helps

Is there a web page where i can download the required data to import pictures from my camera to my computer


Here's the easiest and most fool-proof way. Get a card reader. Insert your card into the card reader and the other end into a USB port on your computer. One of the following will happen: windows will open a dialog box and offer to open the files for you, an icon will appear on your desktop that you can double-click on to open the card or a removable drive will appear in "my computer" that you can double-click on. Once the card is open to the files, select them all by clicking ctrl a and then you can drag and drop them into a folder you create on your desktop or into "my pictures".Here's a card reader that's only $13 at Walmart. 23e4cc7.jpg

I have a Kodak c713 digital camera and no matter what i try i cannot transfer pictures from the camera to the computer.


Simple. Power on the camera, then plug the USB cable from the camera to your computer.

If you're using Windows XP or higher, a menu box will appear and you'll be prompted to select one of these programs to view the picture content. I elected to close this window and instead, I clicked on the My Computer icon on the desktop. From there, you'll see the Easy Share camera listed. Double click on that (assuming you're using the internal memory of the camera - otherwise, if you're using an SD Card - which I haven't tested as I just got the camera as a 15 year gift from my company and I am now testing it - otherwise using an SD card, the camera/card will appear in Windows Explorer/My Computer, as a removable drive).

Once you click on the camera (or the removable drive if you're using an SD card), select all those picture files and copy. Open another My Computer or Windows Explorer and create a new folder and past the files into the new folder, or just create a new folder on the Desktop, and paste the copied files into there. Simple.
