Re: my camera wont turn on nor will it connect to the...
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.

With your camera connected to your computer and turned on, go to driveragent.com 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.
did you mean that your computer does not detect your camera when you connect to it? How do you connect your camera to the computer? by usb port? try the following, one by one:
1. check by connecting to a different USB port in your computer. 2. check by using a different USB cable. 3. check by connecting to a different computer. 4. if your camera came with a disc - install it in your computer and then try again.
which operating system are you using - XP? Vista? Win7?
There is a problem in your battery either you need to replace it or you can try to charge it through USB.
If you want to charge your camera through USB follow the instruction:-
1) In the computer turn OFF the hibernate, sleep or stand by Mode.
2) Turn OFF the camera.
3) Connect the your camera to the computer through USB Cable.4) Wait for your camera battery to charge (Approx. 3 hours) This may resolve your problem,Else you need to replace your battery Rating the solution is highly appreciated...Good Luck
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.
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?
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!
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.
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.
