Computer cannot read camera

Whether on my desk to {wit the dock} or on my laptop, when I connect the camera, both computers give the same warning:
"can not read the device"
I tried a new USB, contacted Kodak and followed their seven pages instructions, to no avail.
I have XP and the camera is a Kodak EasyShare Z612.
Can you please help?
Thank you.

Problem with Western Digital 1.0TB WD10EALX hard drive.


Having looked at the dock, if it's not appearing in the windows disk management I'm afraid you'll have to try another i/o method to test whether the drive is ok. The easiest option is to find someone with a computer which has a spare sata slot and partition it with that (assuming it sees it) or try a different device like a sata to usb converter. Alternatively you could make a linux or other bootable usb stick with formatting/partitioning utility and put the drive in your laptop, boot from the stick and partition it that way. I don't think there are any user settings in the dock you have and no jumpers on the drive so you're scuppered. Let us know how you get on?
Of course having partitioned it it might just not be compatible with your dock, although
Just one more thing if you haven't, try connecting the power to the dock before you plug it into the laptop and try each of your usb ports

Will not let me upload pics says camera not connected to usb port


The error indicates that the computer is not getting an understandable signal from the camera (or dock if you are using one). The solution will be in discovering why the signal isn't getting through, or deciding that the camera or dock is defective.

Verify that the camera battery is charged. Then turn all devices (computer, dock and camera) off. Remove every cable and wire between computer and camera. Unplug power to the dock.

Examine each connection carefully. Look for dirt, bent pins, loose connections, or anything "strange". Look at the bottom of camera too, where it sits on the dock.

Reconnect the wires and cables, power everything up and see if any improvement.

If no improvement and you have WinXP or Vista, Do a System Restore back to a date when the camera connection was working. Restart and check for improvement.

If no improvement, check computer update history. Have any Microsoft updates been applied since the last time the camera connection worked? If so back them off and check for improvement.

If no improvement or no MS updates, decide that the camera or dock are defective and return them. Unfortunately, electronics sometimes fail. If you like the camera, give a replacement a chance.

Take the memory card out of the camera and copy the pics through a card reader.

Good Luck

Hi and welcome to Fixya!

If you're using a Lenovo laptop, you may inadvertently switch off the camera. Try to switch on (or off) the webcam by pressing the Fn key and the Esc key and then release both at the same time. An icon will appear indicating whether the camera is turned on of off.

Hope this helps!

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). 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.

No ethernet with docking station


It could be the connector on the bottom of your laptop that's creating the problem. Does any other ports work on the docking station when docked?

Photo colors are not true on my new Kodak....something wrong?


The Kodak CX4310 is the same as the CX4300 but the 4310 is a Wal-Mart special color. The camera feature that controls color balance is called "white balance" and on the 4310, it is totally automatic. Which means you have no control. If your color is not correct, return the camera. There are not many cameras that use a dock to recharge the camera batteries and connect to the computer. So you will not have many choices if you are looking for a different camera. One camera (without a dock) you should look at, is the Olympus Stylus 300. It is a better choice than the Kodak. It uses rechargeable batteries and the charger is included.
