... when transfering photos i get a message similar to 'some photos are already in my collection and will not be transfered again' when they are new recently taken photos and i havent previously tried to upload them before and are not anywhere in my collect or hard drive but still on the camera.
is there any way to rectify this problem? or edit the settings to turn of no duplicates and allow it to copy photos even if it thinks there is a duplicate (when there isnt).
or is it there a way to open and manually extract the photos myself from the c913 by viewing it as hardware so i dont have to use the easy share software at all?
ive already looked through previous posts and the simple ' select add photos' does not work and i still get the same message.

You can download Kodak software from
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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).
I spoke to someone on the IM chat at the kodak website,
and took me through the steps that seems to get around that problem,
if its a kodak c913.
open the easyshare software.
connect your camera.
if a transfer window opens automatically, close it.
in the easyshare software window open the 'add picture button'.
then select the folder with the name of your camera 'kodak c913'.
all your pictures should load as if it would through the automatic transfer window,
select whatever pictures you want to add,
clock add pictures,
and it doesnt come up with the error message of the software believing there is duplicates.
You should just be able to put your camera card into your printer, then a step-by-step screen (hopefully) comes on. Another way is using the HP Image Zone. Click on "Get Pictures", then click on from camera card.
This worked for my Kodak C913...from Kodak Support.
To switch between the Microsoft WIA drivers and the Kodak camera driver: 1. Connect your camera to your computer.
2. Turn on your camera. NOTE: If the WIA drivers automatically detect your camera and display a window for transferring images. Click Cancel to close this window. 3. Open the Device Manager. a. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. b. In the System Properties window, select the Hardware tab. c. Click Device Manager. 4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Imaging Devices or Universal Serial Bus Controller, depending on the version of Kodak software installed on the computer. Your Kodak camera should be listed.
5. Double-click on your camera model name.
6. Select the Driver tab.
7. Click Update Driver.
8. If you have installed Windows XP Service Pack 2 or above, your system displays the Hardware Update Wizard. Select No, not this time and click Next.
9. Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced) and click Next.
10. Click Don't search. I will choose the driver to install and click Next.
11. Select the Digital Still Camera for WIA drivers if you having trouble using the Kodak drivers, or select the Kodak camera if switching from WIA to Kodak and click Next.
12. Click Finish to complete the driver update.
13. If the program selection window appears, select Windows scanner and camera wizard 14. Select Always use this program for this action and click OK to transfer your pictures.
Kodak has been making a lot of changes to that program, due to problems.
If you loaded the software that came with the camera, it is very likely out of date.
You need to visit the Kodak website and download the latest version of the software.
