    I have the same issue. It still has the batteries it came with because I've been able to download only once since purchase. The batteries are alkaline and carry the Kodak trademark. It worked fine when I took the pix, but never opened again so I could download after the first time. I checked the orientation, as well and spotted the +/- characters on the battery cover. I'm comfortable that it's not a battery issue. Any other advice, because the handbook is pretty useless.....

It IS the batteries. The batteries the camera is shipped with only lasted long enuff to use the camera one time, no download. Changing them out to the lithium AA's solved my problem even though the batteries it was shipped with tested good. Kodak might save it's customers a lot of headaches if they ship with lithiums to begin with.

The computer will not be able to recognize the camera if it's not turned on

I understand that the camera won't turn on to begin with
please try lithium aa's and make sure that the battery oriention is correct. the indicators of the battery orientation for the c513 cameras are confusing to some people so try it "backwards" (as some would say) if it's not coming on.

Why don't you stop worrying how to get the connection working and just use a separate card reader to download your pics.

I bought a system for my photobooth business but it wont connect to the system. What software and driver do i need to install because I have already downloaded different utilities but it still wont...

With your camera connected to your computer and turned on, go to and run a scan. If it detects your camera and shows that there are drivers for it, you can then take out a one year membership and download the drivers. That worked very well for my Canon. I costs a few dollars, but sure saves a lot of time and hassles.

It wont download pictures to the computer

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.

My computer wont recognise my FinePix A610 camera

Suggest that you go tp my computer as the answer above has suggested and attempt to open drive(memory chip) in the camera and download. If not suggest removing the memory chip from the camera and try accessing via Walmart or other stores photo Kiosk.

Suggest opening Fin-pix first before connecting camera.

Through fine-pix search for camera as if it was an external drive. Hope this helps?

Computer wont reconice camera when i plug it in

Well, i'm guessing it's safe to assume that you are plugging it into a USB port on your computer. Most computers will have two or more of these ports on the computer. 1st, try using a different USB port. Make sure that when you connect your camera, that it is turned off. Once connected, turn your camera on. If nothing happens, turn it of but keep the camera connected and reboot your computer. Sometimes it will automatically read what you have stored on your camera. If none of that works for you, i'll look up some places that you could find software compatable with your Canon.
Let me know!

My camera wont turn on for some reason.

Very good move to switch to rechargeable batteries, this camera swallow expensive regular batteries in a very short period of time.
Your camera is not receiving the energy from the batteries. Connecting it to the computer does not make any change as power is required from the batteries to communicate with the computer.
The problem with your camera could be a simple issue or a really bad condition.
I the first case, if you are able to open it, look for the connectors to the batteries. There could be a missing connection (may require some simple soldering). Check voltage and continuity with a voltmeter.
If there int any problem there, then you have a mayor issue in your camera and requires for you to decide from have it repaired at a camera shop, or on the other hand, to replace the camera.

What's up with my camera

You will probably have to go into "My Computer" and find your camera in the "Devices with Removable Storage". It should be there, otherwise, try plugging it into a different USB jack on your computer, if you have one.

first, open Windows Explorer and then search for the drive letter that Windows has automatically selected to be your camera's memory card. If you cannot find it (remember to right mouse click over each letter to see a short description). Once found on Windows Explorer, double mouse click it and then search all camera memory folders for the video files. You can then right mouse click and copy each file and then past (rt. mouse click select paste from pop-up sub-menu) each file onto your pc hard drive.
