Protax


Try connecting camera to computer.
Open My Computer and see if camera shows
If camera does not show then computer is not recognizing the connection, try different port o different cord, or different computer.

If camera icon shows, then right click on icon and select Open.
Navigate to images.
Drag and drop images into a folder.

While icon is still active.
Right click icon, select properties, or select 'open-with', and rummage around to see if there are options telling XP what to do when camera is connected.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

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 nor will it connect to the computer


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.
