    My DX6490 stopped transferring pictures to my computer in the middle of the transfer. After that I can't get it to transfer pictures to any of my computers. I checked the Kodak site and they no longer offer support for this model. Help, please. I've tried leaving the batter out and leaving the camera off for hours, but that doesn't help.

By far the best solution is to buy a memory card reader, If your PC is usb2 you will be stagered by the increase in speed.
if there are pictures on the internal memory you can use the copy feature to move the images to a memory card.
If you dont have a memory card get one also, the DX6490 will take upto 2gb cards, if in the uk mymemory has 2gb cards for 7.99ukp..

A couple of things to check is that the camera is the only USB device attached to the PC as some devices interfear with each other. and you may want to try another usb cable although its a kodak's own cable type so your unlikely to hve one spare from something else.
Beyond that, try reseting the camera (although im not sure if internal memory pictures will be lost) I dont have my test unit available and cant remember where/iff the dx6490 has a restet option, the other way to reset is remove the main battery for a few hours, if the clock is wrong when you re insert the battery its reset...

best of luck

PICTURES NO LONGER TRANSFER TO MY COMPUTER


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer 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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

I have a coolpix p2 digital camera and I just want to know how I hook up my digital camera to my computer because the instruction book that I have is in spanish. can you please help


You can download the user manual (English) from:
http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/P1P2_en.pdf

The following is taken from the manual (page 61):
"Using the UC-E6 USB cable and PictureProject software provided with your camera,
you can transfer photographs and movies to a computer and view them. Before
images can be transferred (copied) to your computer, PictureProject must be
installed. For information on installing PictureProject, see the Quick Start Guide
and the PictureProject Reference Manual (on CD).
You can transfer images to a computer using a wireless LAN and play back the
pictures on computer. See "Wireless Transfer Mode" (c132) for more information."

Or you can use the Windows XP software. Step by step instructions on downloading and installing the software is given in the following website:

Cannot transfer video and pictures to computer


Hello
Here are some ways to transfer data from camera to computer:-
Run the software that came with your camera. Pop the CD into your computer and go through the setup steps. The only way you'll be able to transfer is if you have the software installed. If you bought the camera used or, for one reason or another, just don't seem to have the CD, you can probably find a used or maybe even a new one on eBay. You might be able to find it somewhere else as well.
Connect the camera to the computer. Let's face it, the pictures aren't going to the computer if there is no cord to connect them. Most of the time, you'll hear a sound or something will pop-up if the camera is connected properly and working.
Sync the camera to the computer and transfer the pictures. With most camera software, as soon as you connect the camera to the computer and it recognizes it, something will pop up asking if you would like to sync the pictures to the computer. After that it's pretty self-explanatory. If nothing pops up or it never was supposed to pop up in the first place, open the camera program. Most likely you'll be able to find your way from there. If not, read your camera manual. It should tell you even more than this how-to.
Another option is to buy a Memory Card Reader. They will go by the name " 6 in One, 12 in one, USB Reader Writer or Flash Memory Card Reader Writer. They allow all memory sticks and cards to be recognized by your computer. On Windows XP, you just plug it in and find it as another drive on My Computer.

Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

How do i transfer a picture from the camera to my HP Pavilion Slimline computer?


Does your computer have a memory card reader? if so use that. If you don't have one you can buy a USB memory card reader on eBay for cheap.

OK...step 1...check all cables. Hooking the cable up and turning the camera on should put it in transfer mode...does camera do this?

If yes, step 2...go to system information and uninstall drivers.

step 3....use uninstall programs to remove sony software (BACK UP PICS FIRST)

step 4....reboot

step 5...reinstall software

sounds like your drivers are toast or your usb port is shot...try moving the cable to another usb port
