Try 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.

When you disconnect from the computer, do you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your screen or do you just yank out the cord? When you yank, most of the time you will corrupt the card and even the camera. You can try to download your pics from the card using a separate card reader or take it to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk and print your pics or even make a cd of them. Then, Check your owner's manual to learn how to reset the camera. After that, format the card in the camera.

Cannot connect to PC


Wrote to GE about the problem. Win2000 is required. Looks like they aren't interested in getting a driver written for Win98.

However, they suggested I transfer the pics to an SD card and then use an SD card reader (cheap enough) to transfer the pics to my computer. IT WORKS but I would much rather transfer directly from the A830 camera to the Win98SE computer via the USB cable..

Error in connecting the digital camera


i had this problem for couple of days, until i started googling this problem. I started to reread this instruction manual. If you have a communication error on the camera screen. Make sure the the USB port you are using, is a working unit. If it is, more than likely the port is not inserted correctly. Keep fiddling around with it until the message goes away. I would also turn the camera on and off to double check and make sure.
