Digital still camera installation failure

I plug my camera in to my pc via USB cable. My VISTA OS used to be able to identify the camera (Kodak Easyshare C300). Now all it does is display the "digital camera installation failed" message. Can you please help?

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Use a cardreader to download your pictures. Download them to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can do anything you want with them.

SOURCE: "driver cannot start" driver code 10

Try the following:
- Go to Control Panel, Hardware & Sound, Device Manager
- Go to the Portable Devices folder. If the S560 folder has a yellow triangle, double click on the S560 folder and a dialogue box will display.
- Go the the Driver Tab and click on the Uninstall Driver button. This will uninstall the S560 Device Driver.
- Unplug the camera USB connection and re-plug. Windows will automatically configure the Driver for your camera. Wait until you get a message that the Driver has been installed successfully.

Hope this works for you, as it did for me.

If you can get the pics using a card reader, why are you insisting on using the camera and USB cord? Pros always use a card reader.

M753 Easyshare I use Vista and I cannot donwload the latest drivers.


Hello

Any digital camera will work fine with Windows Vista without drivers. Just plug it in via your USB and Windows will detect it as an external device that you can find via My Computer. From there, you can browse through, transfer, and copy your photos and videos.

However, if you are really trying to install the actual Kodak Easyshare software, that software can be located at the below link:

Kodak Easy Share CD1013 pictures won't download on Vista


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards
Andrea

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Professional/Me/XP
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
 

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
installed OS.
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.

Check whether the software CD you received with the camera, support the Win XP OS. In case it doesn't, go to the Canon web site and download the relevant drivers for you camera and OS. Good luck!
