This question comes up several times a day here in the camera section at Fixya (especially with Vista users). But please note, it's very hard to troubleshoot individual software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please don't take this as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Www kodak com go support


Marie, For every camera that someone wants to connect to a computer, there has to be installed a program on the computer. The program came with the camera on the CD. Perhaps you thought only the manual was on the CD, but no.
If you already dumped the CD, just goto the Kodak website, register your camera and ask for the easy share software. you can download it for free. Because it will only work with a Kodak camera.

Always first install the software, then connect the camera.
Once the software is on the computer, the program is self explaining. It even starts up (should start up) as soon as the camera is connected via the USB cable.

Tip

Connecting to a Vista Computer


Having problems connecting the camera to a Vista computer?

1. Install the camera driver, which can be found from the CD.

2. Turn on the Camera, and change it to "Playback" mode.
3. Connect the camera to the computer using USB port.

4. The LCD display of the camera will turn off automatically, and the computer should say that new hardware is detected.

5. Go to "My Computer", and you should find a new drive saying "Removable disk".

Double click it and you will find your pictures and videos inside the folder. Just copy them to your computer's hard disk.

Lost the CD, how do I install in a new computer?


You don't need to install the camera.


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 Picasa.

My computer can't read camera and headphone


Hellooooo friend..............


Check first if the battery of your camera has the enough power to operate while it is plugged to your laptop.
If yes and still does'nt work.
If that's brand new, you'll find two kind of CD in the packaging; one is the installation CD and the manual CD. Install the installation CD for it will load the Driver of your camera. Then try to upload you picture again.
If that's not brand new, connect to internet and download the camera driver while your camera is plugged to your laptop

How to install cameras to computer


Whenever you connect a new peripheral to your pc it detects it and tells you that it has detected a new hardware and tries to install necessary driver files for it. If your OS is not having necessary files it asks you to insert the drivr CD. In order to let the OS know what is configuration of the H/W .ini file is required which remains in the driver installation CD. You have to show the path to the OS where the .ini file is located. If the PC does not detects the camera on Plug n play then you can go to control panel camera and scanners and add a new one over there once asked for driver you have to give it a path to the installation CD. Now a days vendors do not give away open drivers they put it in autoexe cab under this situation you should not connect the camera to the PC untill you run the exe or setup file in the installation CD after running it you can connect the camera and windows will detect it. Hope this solves your prob. If any further assistance required kindly ask.

Dont know how to upload pics to computer


after connecting your camera, power it up. the computer will then prompt new hardware found and is ready to use. in most cases, the camera will be treated as another disk in your computer (like usb disk). go to my computer and check if there is a removable devices listed. open that drive then you may start to copy and paste it on any folder of your computer.

the camera should also come with a cd, which you may install in your computer.
