I am using a Kodak printer dock with c340 camera. Using Windows xp operating system the kodak software does not function and does not import photo files into the computer. Only an error message appears saying that a device is not connected, when in fact everything is properly connected, and the software was installed before connecting the printer dock, as per instructions. Windows xp does not detect the presence of the camera as revealed by Device Manager.

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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa or Kodak's.
The Kodak camera dock provides automatic battery charging and automatic connection to your computer when the camera is "docked." There is also a version of the dock that includes a printer, but I have found the printer to be poor quality and very unreliable. The dock must be connected to the computer via USB, and the Kodak EasyShare software must still be installed. The dock is a very handy accessory, but it will not solve your problem. What might help though is a visit to Kodak.com where you can get a free download of the latest EasyShare software that is correct for your operating system.
You can do it through your laptop's card reader or using a card reader device.
Take your memory card out from the camera and put it in the adapter(a card holder) given to you. Now you can use it in Laptops in built-in card reader/ card reader device. If the SD memory card is read only this will not work, otherwise this way you can copy photos to Card very easily. Also you can copy photos from memory card in the same way

If you are using Windows XP unplug your camera from your PC and uninstall the Kodak software. You don't need it to transfer photos to your PC. The next time you connect your camera (turn the camera on) to your computer it should recognize it and you can use Windows built in transfer software.

Kodak has been making a lot of changes to that program, due to problems.
If you loaded the software that came with the camera, it is very likely out of date.
You need to visit the Kodak website and download the latest version of the software.
