ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, windows 7or Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.
2Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"
3Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.
4Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification. If you need further assistance please feel free to let me know. Thanks and have great day, Midwest-tek
Plug in a Memory Card, in the Card Reader, then Right-Click on My Computer Icon, Click on Manage, Then go to Disk Management, If you can find the Memory card Detected there but without a drive letter, then right-click on it and Give it a distinct(New) Drive letter and apply, but if it already has a drive letter assigned, then change it to a new one...i.e, assign to it a new Drive letter.
The videos will not be in the same folder where your pictures are.
Follow these steps.
1.First, connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways:
a.Use a USB cable. Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. The first time you connect your camera to your computer, the New Hardware Wizard will help you install the software needed to copy pictures and video from your camera. You may need to insert the CD-ROM that was included with your camera into your computer's CD drive or download software from your camera manufacturer's Web site.
b.Use memory card reader. A memory card reader is a piece of hardware that plugs into your computer. When you're ready to download video, you can remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk.

Tip: It's usually faster to use a memory card reader to copy your pictures or video than to connect your camera to your computer with a cable. If you don't own a memory card reader, you might want to consider purchasing one. They are inexpensive and will save you time.
2.Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, Windows XP will detect the connection to your memory card and ask what to do with your videos. Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK.
Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK
3.Windows Explorer opens, showing your memory card. Your videos are contained within one of the subfolders of the memory card. Double-click each folder to locate your videos.
4.Once located. copy them to your computer and then select all and delete.

There is an alternate way of downloading images from the memory card from the camera. Get a USB memory card reader, remove the memory card from the camera, insert it into the card reader, then plug the card reader into the USB port of your computer. You will now see card reader as an external memory device, open the folder and copy your photos onto your hard drive.
Guys...I was pretty upset when I could not find the driver for my Targus Universal 32 in 1 card reader/writer. That's what brought me to this site. However after reading under the "Technical Specifications on the insert (instructions etc..), I noticed that Windows 2000/XP/Vista computers do not need drivers. Says just plug in and use (which I was going to do in the first place).
You have to put your card in it first and use one of the USB ports on you CPU (not your monitor..if you have that). IT WORKS GREAT!!!

Your Kodak EasyShare digital camera will not work directly with a computer running the Windows NT operating system. The Windows NT operating system does not support the universal serial bus (USB) standard, and all Kodak EasyShare digital cameras communicate using the USB standard.
However, you can transfer pictures from your camera to your computer by purchasing a parallel port card reader. Take the memory card with pictures from the camera, insert the memory card into the card reader, and then copy the pictures from the memory card to the computer.
