My camera will not put pictures onto the memory card.
I have read what the manual says, and I have done other problem-solving things that I've seen on this website, but my camera suddenly won't recognize the same SD card that it has previously recognized.
I have tried to clean the card area. I have changed the battery. I have formatted the IN Memory on the camera; but it will not even recognize the SD card, so I can't even attempt to format the card.

When your camera will not transfer images onto memory card this is often because the image storage has been set to 'Auto'. You need to set it back to internal memory temporarily to allow you to copy the images over to the card. Once you have done this you can set the camera back to 'Auto' and this will reset the system and you will now have access to all of the images on the card.
This particular procedure works with all cameras but the steps outlined here are for Kodak in particular.
Please follow these steps; 1) Insert the card
2) Turn the camera to Auto
3) Press review - "reading memory card"
4) Press menu and scroll down to image storage and press ok
5) Select Internal Memory and press OK
6) Scroll down to Copy - Copy Pictures to memory card
7) Scroll down to ALL and press OK - you should see "Copying" displayed
8) When the screen goes back to the main menu - Scroll to Image storage again and select Auto - OK - "Reading memory card"
You should now be able to see the pictures from your internal memory saved onto your memory card and your camera is once again ready to use.

I've attempted in the past to download from the internal memory to the computer before with no success. What you can do is put the memory card back into the camera and transfer the internal pictures to your memory card (your camera refers to these as "frames"). I'm not sure if you have a manual or not but what needs to be done is selecting copy using the multi-control button on the back of the camera select "IN" for internal and arrow from internal to card. the only sticky thing about this is you need to do one "frame" at a time. Make sure you have the room on your memory card before doing this. You might want to format the memory card first before you do the transfer from internal memory to your memory card. Then once the Internal "frames" are all on the memory card you can down load them to the computer as "normal"
If you indeed have the pictures on your computer (and are safely stored)... you might try selecting the format memory card function in the camera, to reformat the card, in case it was somehow corrupted while connected to the computer.
The pictures on your camera are almost certainly being written to a memory card that is in the camera. The most common cards are SD, CF, and memory stick. You can buy a USB memory card reader that will read all of these formats for about $10 at any electronics store. Plug the reader in your computer and then just insert your memory card any time you want to get the pictures off the camera and put them on your computer. This is easier than messing with the cables that come with cameras anyway.
If there are images on your camera that you want off, put your memory card in. They camera will usually switch to your memory card. You must go to setup on your camera and switch it to internal memory. Once you have switched, review one of your pictures on your internal memory and bring up your menu. It should have a option that says "copy" or "copy all" to memory card. Push your okay button and they pictures should transfer. Now you have copies on your card and your camera. After you have done this, you can delete your pictures that are on your camera.
