Sorry no help, I downloaded the Kodak software off of the disk on to my other computer and all works well, pictures download good. Guess I will just have to use this computer. If you think of any other solutions let me know.

Personally I wouldn't be using the camera software if it's deleting images without the command to do so.
What you can do is purchase a card reader with multiple memory card ports that way when you do get another camera the reader will have the port for the memory card.
Anyway the reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader as an external hard drive (Mass storage device) Depending on your operating system you should have an application called "My Documents" Open a new folder I generally use the date and img. then insert the memory card into the reader and the computer will either bring it up on the desk top as a hard drive or you may need to co fetch it in "My Computer" (I don't know your system) once that's done you can open the picture files copy and paste them into the new folder. Then you just need to open your camera software program and click on open and go to that file.
Once you have your pictures secured on the computer Hard Drive then format the memory card.
Formatting clears all the surface and makes the memory card ready to accept new picture data.
I suspect you have been deleting pictures and deleting pictures again and again well, you should be formatting after each time you download the pictures to the computer.
I know that will solve the problem and you can use the same system when you get a new camera
Purchase an inexpensive card reader such as the Ativa, available at Staples and Office Depot for $9.95. Put your memory card with the photos on it into the reader and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Windows will recognize it as another drive and assign it a drive letter. Using any graphics program, or Windows Explorer, navigate to that drive, open the file containing the pics, click select all, and copy the pics to a file on your computer. Make sure that all the pics have transferred or copied to the new file. Replace the card back into your camera and format the card so it is empty and ready to receive new pics. FYI: Less than 1 gig memory cards are available on ebay for dirt prices. Also, go to the camera manufacturers website and see if they have a firmware update for your camera that allows larger than 1 gig cards to be used. I had to do that for my Fuji S700 so I could use 4 gig cards. It used to max out at 2 gigs. If this has solved your problem please rate it accordingly. Good luck.
If you installed the disc that came with your camera into Vista and it still does not recognize the camera when you plug in your USB cable, one quick solution to get the pictures off of your card would be to purchase a card reader (approx. $20 here in the states). That is assuming that the computer does not have one built in. If it does, open the battery door on the camera with the camera off, and press on the card to eject it, put the microSDHC card into the SD adapter and plug that into your card reader into the SD slot. From there you should be ready to go.
your memory card has a virus! try formatting using camera. make it a habit that whenever you reinsert the memory card in your camera format it first before taking shots, this will erase everything including virus! you may also try another memory card. Check also your pc, are you sure you didnt install any program recently? Some program installed may have conflict with another program like in your case.
