Trouble uploading photos from camera to easyshare on laptop
When I plug in the usb cable, 15 images will immediately be transferred out of the 100+ images, but then a series of grey rectangles with zigzag going through the center appear...Waiting for the grey to turn into an image is futile. This problem does not happen when I use the PC where the original Easyshare program was first uploaded several years ago. all images appear immediately. This problem is only with the updated version on Kodakshare on the laptop.

Re: trouble uploading photos from camera to easyshare on...
If your using a memory card card go out and buy a memory card reader. These plug into your computer and will download pictures onto your computer much faster than a USB cable attached to your camera. If all the pictures on your camera appear okay with a card reader you problem is solved.

You need the software on the cd rom that came with yor camera.
I quote from the manual: turn on the computer-plug the USB cable into the camera-plug the other cable end into a USB port on the computer-the image download window displays on the computer screen-use the software's browser function to choose the folder in which you would-be like to save your pictures-click Ok to download the images. Hope it works!
Maria, You should have received a USB cable, when you purchased your camera, that plugs into both your camera and your laptop. Also you should have received software with your camera that allows you to transfer the images from camera to laptop. If you did not purchase your camera new and do not have these items, you will need to purchase a "viewer", around $12.00 US, which is a small unit that accepts all sizes s of memory cards. Just plug the USB cable from the viewer to your laptop and put the memory card into the viewer and the image will appear on your screen.
* 1 Attach the USB cable to the camera. Open the small, rubber door on the side of the camera body and plug the corresponding end of the USB cable into the slot on the camera.
* 2 Plug the USB end of the cable into the computer. Make sure the cable is securely attached to both the camera and the computer.
* 3 Turn the camera on. This will open software to download your images. You will be able to move the images from the camera to the computer and choose whether to remove the images from the card.
* 4 Select the option to download or transfer images. This will depend on what type of operating system you are running and may vary if you are running third-party image processing software, such as software that came with your camera.
Using a Card Reader
* 1 Turn the camera off and remove the memory card carefully. * 2 Insert the card securely into the card reader slot. * 3 If necessary, turn on the card reader. This will open the software to remove images from the card and place them onto your computer. * 4 Select the option to download or transfer your images.
1) Purchase a VGA cable (these can be purchased from any good PC shop)
2) Plug one end into the VGA connector on your laptop usually will have 15 pins sticking ut on the back of your laptop
3) Plug the other end into the Monitor
4) On your laptop press the fn key and F8 key (or the F key which has a picture of 2 monitors above it) - this will transfer the display from the laptop to the external monitor
5) enjoy :)

I had a similar problem, mine wouldn’t turn on unless I plugged it in the computer and then it still wouldn’t work!
I found this on Sony’s trouble shooter -
Battery is 100% discharged. Therefore, PC's USB with 5V/500mA set up has not enough power to start up the charging process because loading current is greater than the set up, therefore USB is disabled immediately due to sudden current load.
Battery must not be discharged 100%
If it happens then the supplied AC adaptor must be used firstly because it is providing 5V/800mA power. After a couple of minutes the unit can be connected to PC without problem then it can continue the charging during file transfer, etc.
So I bought a USB adapter charger! Plugged it in and now it is working!
HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!
You need a "Sync" cable from your phone to one of the USB ports on your computer. With that you should be able to extract the pics from the phone with the following:
Turn on computer, plug sync cable into phone and turn on, plug USB cable into computer, listen for gong acknowledgement, go to Start button (lower left) on computer screen, click once, look for my computer or computer on right column, click on that to see what is connected to your computer, look for your phone, if it's not there, stop-I don't what to tell you. If it is, click it to open up the phone, dig down to look for your pics, when and if you see them, right click on each one and drag and drop unto your desktop, you can maneuver them from there. This works with most peripherals that plug into a USB port.
There is really only one sure way to transfer images from a digital camera to your computer and that is with a card reader ($15-20). Plugging the camera directly into the computer is one of the most problematic areas in digital cameras. It is so much easier to go buy a card reader and plug it into the USB port on your computer. Then remove the memory card from your camera and plug it into the card reader. You can now click and drag or use any normal method to transfer your images. I would also advise a free download called Picasa3 supplied by Google. It will keep your images organized and assist you as your transfer images using your new card reader. It does a whole lot of other things your will like also. Best Wishes.

Here is their suggestion
This document explains how to transfer images from the camera to a computer running Windows XP operating system by using a universal serial bus (USB) cable.
Transferring the images
Follow the steps below to transfer images from the camera to a Windows XP computer.
Step one: Connect the camera to the computer
Turn off the camera.
The camera came with a special USB cable for connecting the camera to a computer. Connect the large end of that USB cable to the computer.
Figure 1: Connect the USB cable
Open the rubber door on the side of the camera and connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the camera.
Step two: Transfer the images
Choose one of the following methods to transfer the image files:
Method one: Transfer images with the HP Photosmart software
If images on the camera are selected for printing or selected for HP Instant Share destinations, make sure the computer is connected to a printer and the Internet.
Turn on the camera. The HP Import Photos software starts on your computer. If you have set the software to automatically transfer the images in the camera, the images automatically transfer to the computer.
Otherwise, in the Transfer images from Camera/Card screen, click Start Transfer . The images are transferred to the computer, and then if there are any still images that were previously selected for HP Instant Share destinations, those actions are started.
When the Image Action Summary screen appears on the computer, you can disconnect the camera from the computer.
Method two: Transfer images without the HP Photosmart software
If you do not, or cannot, install HP Photosmart Software on your computer, you can still transfer images from the camera to the computer using the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) in Windows XP.
Follow the steps below to transfer images.
Turn on the camera.
Windows will automatically launch a program to transfer the images.
When the images have finished transferring, disconnect the camera from the computer.
If you encounter problems, check that the camera USB Configuration in the Setup Menu is set to Digital Camera .
While in Live View , press the Live View/Playback button, and then press the Menu/OK button.
Scroll to the Setup Menu using the left/right arrow buttons.
Use the up/down arrow buttons to scroll through the Setup Menu to highlight the USB option.
Use the left/right arrow buttons to change the setting to Digital Camera and then press the Menu/OK button.
To exit from the Setup Menu , press the Live View/Playback button.
