Re: Can't take pictures
Check your batteries, they may be inserted the wrong way, if not, then just press the button on the back of the camera ONCE to power it up. Then press the shutter button. the number readout on back should show one less number than it did before. You have taken a photo. You also need software that works.

Not enough information. The transferring of files requires a sequence of functions to happen before the pictures will transfer to the computer. You will need the camera software installed on the computer. The camera sequence for transfer and each camera is different, some just need you to turn the camera on after connecting the USB cable while others require you press the "Playback" button to transfer files. Depending on the camera software installed on a computer they "normally" download to a file folder then the pictures can be opened in the software programing.
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.
If I remember correctly, you needed to install the software and the drivers before connecting the camera by USB cable. It should all have been done with the camera not connected.
If you did it while it was connected, you must try uninstaling the software, and going into Device Manager and finding the specific driver fot that camera and Kodak, and removing that too.
Then restart your PC and start fresh.
Do the Software and Driver installation without the camera being installed or attached.
Once you have done the installation of software and driver, then, following the instructions, you can attach the camera and it should work this time.
I would take out the SD memory card and use it with a
card reader like this one: http://bit.ly/5fruhB . You simply take out
the SD memory card and put it in the card reader. Then put the usb end
of the card reader into your computer and download the pictures that way.I also recommend that you download Picasa, a free photo organizer/editor
for your pictures: http://bit.ly/5f6HEt This way you bypass the lousy
nikon software altogether. Hope that was helpful, Take Care, -WN
Software Uninstall your existing software. Download new software from http://www.goaiptek.com/drivers/driverfiles/minixp_1.5.zip Unzip. Install the new software but DO NOT CONNECT THE CAMERA UNTIL INSTALLATION IS COMPLETE.
Camera Remove any batteries. Set switch to 'On' Set Mode to Video When software installation is complete, plug in camera to PC with USB cable supplied. Run installed program on PC. The Mega camera screen will appear. Click on 'Live'. Your camera picture should appear on the screen.
see many a times the drivers files are corrupted after a particular period of time due to loading of some other softwares or programs getting crosslinked with few necessary files.i would suggest you to uninstall the driver completely first then install it fresh again.its a common problem and will get solved after reloading fresh drivers again.thanks.
Please install software "Picture Package" CD came with camera. Connect USB cable to camera and other end of cable to PC. Windows XP or Vista will recognize it and install its drivers automatically. If camera is not recognized by Windows, go to camera Menu, enable USB Streaming and check. Hope info will help you.
First, make sure you have installed the software for your camera. The drivers have to be active in order to recognize the camera. Most of the newer cameras will show like a hard drive when you go to MY COMPUTER and then open the portable drive.
If you do not have the software, go to the home page of the camera maker and download the software needed with the drivers.
