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.

I am trying to download pics to computer i have already downloded software etc and have successfully downloaded other pics from cam since i have added a memory card when I plug cable to download into...

Blinking light means your computer still in process reading your data from memory card. Higher capacity of memory card would make the computer need longer time to read it. Just be patient and don't unplug the USB cable.
If you think its too long, then you can unplug the cable data, put off the memory card and open in via card reader so you can download your pictures to PC.

If useful, RATE please !

Cannot get picts frm cam

first - check physical connection:
when the camera is connected to the computer through usb, the camera should be turned on, nothing will appear on the screen and you will see a flashing light from the camera signifying that it's "making a connection"

if, the camera screen is active while connected to pc, that means it's not making connection so check other USB port, like the back -it's more reliable as it's directly connected to the motherboard, not a hub like that of the one in the front of the tower

when it's showing a flashing light, check if the computer shows an "image transfer window" - that will appear if you are using Kodak Easyshare Software, if you don't have it installed, check if WIA (Windows Imaging Acquisition) transfer options will automatically pop up

If not please check this
rightclick on My Computer> properties> Hardware> device manager

1. check if the cam is a subcategory of the Universal Serial Bus Controllers -

a. IF IT IS, highlight it, rightclick and select Update Driver, select bottom options until it asks you to choose between "Kodak Camera" and "Digital Still Camera", select "Digital Still Camera"
now it will update then check if it would appear under "Imaging Devices" (if you have XP) or "Portable Devices" (if you have Vista)
a transfer window should appear using WIA, then follow prompts
a.1 if it created it's own category under Device Manager, open my computer, select your camera and it will act like a removable disk, so you can copy and paste pics

b. IF IT IS NOT, please check if it's under a Kodak Category (open my computer, select your camera and it will act like a removable disk, so you can copy and paste pics) or Imaging Devices/Portable Devices, righclick on your cam model or kodak camera> update driver, select bottom options and at the part where it asks you to choose bet the kodak cam and digital still, please select the Kodak Cam, then an Eeasyshare Software Transfer Window should appear (that's if you have Easyshare Software)

you can dl it from

Purch New Spiderman 3 digital camera & cd w/software drivers for Win2000/XP--My computers have Windows Vista & a Mac w/os10? Is there compatable software/drivers ? I would love to upload my sons pics

Take it back and get him a different camera, I hate to tell you that those special pics may never be recovered. I have been looking for help everywhere for this crappy cam and the pics are so bad you can't hardly see anything even in good light. I still have not gotten the software to work at all. It is junk and they need to get them off the shelves I paid 35.00 for my son's and it isn't worth one penny! Sorry that you lost out on such a important historical moment hope you used your camera too.
Good Luck. Mia

Problem with my cam

you do not need software for this or any other camera Windows XP can cope very well on its own. Plug in the camera. make sure it is switched on and set to upload. Windows will put up the picture and scan Wizard and ask what you want to do with the images Take it from there
