After downloading my SD card files to my computer, my camera started doing this, I've tried using rechargeable batteries, messed with the settings, and eventually even got it hooked up to the computer to try updating the drivers or something. I think it's toast.

Re: Camera turns off after being turned on.
Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts,
or it could be something more serious and expensive. First try
removing the batteries and cleaning the camera contacts with a small
metal brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. If that doesn't fix the
problem, check the Kodak

format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

If your computer has a built in card reader you can put any photo back on the card from your computer by dragging and dropping the file to the drive letter that is your SD card. If you're trying to recover lost photos from a SD card Google "card recovery pro". It's a free program that will read your SD card and restore as many photo's as it can.
Please remove the SD card from the camera. Connect the SD card to the computer using the external memory card reader and then transfer all the images in the computer or laptop. Then try to open all the images.

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.
the kodak C743 can only take upto 8gb SDHC card , if you have a 16 / 32 / 64 & 128gb card these will not work
try upgrading the firmware from the website by this method
Visit the EASYSHARE Software page and download the latest version of software.
Connect the camera to your computer using a USB cable.
NOTE: The first time you connect your camera to your computer, Sync and Transfer Setup or Sync and Transfer Assistant prompts appear on the screen. Follow the prompts to set up the camera as a device in the software.
Remove the memory card from the camera.
Turn on the camera.
Start EASYSHARE Software.
Select Tools > Sync and Transfer Manager.
Select your device from the list in the left column, and then select the Info tab.
Click Update Firmware, and go to the location where you downloaded the firmware file.
Click Open to copy the file from your computer to the internal memory on the camera.
Turn off the camera, and then disconnect the USB cable from the camera.
Turn on the camera and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the upgrade. The upgrade takes approximately two minutes. When it is complete, the camera will delete the firmware file from internal memory.
Turn off the camera, and then turn it back on again.
This sounds like corrupted files. Are you downloading these pictures using your camera (ie through a USB cable attached to your camera)? If so, may I suggest using a USB card reader instead. If already using a card reader, suggest buying another one as it may have gone bad.
You plug the SD card into the card reader, and then plug the reader into the USB port of your computer. It essentially turns your SD card into a hard drive that you simply copy and paste or drag and drop the files from onto your computer's hard drive. It's very simple, no software involved.
Card readers are much faster in downloading files and are much less likely to incur file errors. For these reasons most (if not all) professional photographers use card readers instead of downloading directly from the camera. Card readers are also very inexpensive. Here's an example of a nice cheap one. Try it, see if it fixes your problem. If so, then consider getting a better one later:
It would seem that you would have to do it all over again, that is download the pictures again to the SD memory card. But before doing this, you would need to format the SD card using the digicam rather than the PC.
In some cases, it maybe that the picture files (downloaded from the computer) does not match the image property requirements of the digicam so that even if the image files are stored in the SD memory card, the camera is unable to list/view them
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
