Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7530 Digital Camera
So many people use the camera and a USB cable to download their pictures to the camera software programing installed on the computer a lot of the times this just becomes a big problem. What you are experiencing is one or more corrupt files on the memory card. There is several reasons for this but that's now what you want to here right now. Okay to fix the problem right now if you are using a PC with Windows XP home or newer you can go into My Documents and create a file folder I generally use Year Month Date. Make sure the camera has sufficient power to do a download turn the camera off. Connect the USB cable to the computer and the camera. Make sure your camera software isn't going to auto start then turn on the camera. One of three things will happen, you see a Found new Device and then an icon appears on the desk top, or you need to go find it in preferences it's show as an external device like an external hard drive, printer, CD/DVD burner and maybe have a drive letter D,E,F or something. Once you see this you can open it see the thumbnails click once on one and then select all copy and then past the file in the new folder you just made. At that point you should be able to open the file see the thumbnails and scroll through them and see the corrupt files. Now before you disconnect the USB cable you must safely remove device or eject the drive. The camera being the drive. Each computer system and programing call the same action several different things but it boils down to shut the cable off before disconnecting it. once the cable is shut off disconnect from the computer and camera. At this point you need to format the memory card. It's this formatting that will clean the card and prevent the rotten Catastrophic pains in the Lower Unit (or where the body meets the saddle).
Where the problem stems from is deleting pictures on the camera take more pictures delete more pictures shoot more pictures and so on and every time you delete a picture on the camera it leaves a whole. Eventually you can't take any more pictures because the card is full of whole the camera can load to or down load because it runs into one of these corrupted wholes and the whole issue come to a grinding halt. Causing a catastrophic-ly annoying problem.
Format the memory card every time you download pictures Format the card in the camera it is going to be used in.
Going back to the new file you created, you should be able to open this file within your Kodak programing as in "open" then search through the "My Documents".
Okay that's for now but in the future what I'm suggesting you do is take the camera out of the equation and use an inexpensive card reader that hooks up to a USB port. You would then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the card reader. The computer will immediately recognize this as a mass storage device and you can download the pictures files the same way I explained above. (To a new folder in My Documents)
I know this is a lot to ingest, formatting is explained in your owners manual if you have lost the manual I'll attempt to find an online version but some times Kodak isn't to helpful.
I sincerely hope this has been a help and Have a Happy New Year
