Re: downlaod to a laptop computer
Hey randster, You could use a card reader that connects to a USB port, and use the picture management software that comes with most operating systems. You could also contact the manufacturer and they should be able to get you the USB cord for your camera and often they can provide the software for free. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead.

Consider 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
I suppose you could consider a card reader as a docking station, though it doesn't connect to the camera.
Kodak sells three different package versions of their cameras. You can purchase one of their cameras with an adapter but no dock, with adapter and dock, or with adapter and printer dock. The dock and printer dock are also available on line (try eBay) as accessories. The dock is an extremely handy accessory, allowing automatic charging and computer connection. The printer dock though, at least in my experience, is a cumbersome and unreliable method of obtaining low-quality photos.
Do you have the usb cable for the camera? If you do, then go into the menu using the 4-way controller go to the setting menu. Under usb connection select PC. Then you can back out of the menu. Turn your camera off, connect the usb cable, then turn the camera on. Let me know if you need more help.
I had the same problem. I did need to take the clear plastic insert off but then I had to put a rubber band around the dock and camera (more on the left of the camera and dock) to hold it evenly on there since the camera was leaning on the right and wasn't charging for me. Now it charges as soon as I put it on there with the rubber band with no blinking red light anymore! Hope this helps!
Try reinstalling your camera drivers. You need to uninstall it first while docking station is removed. Then reinstall your camera software through the cd that comes with it then try plugging it in again either on the same usb slot or a different usb slot. Then try docking the camera again if theirs any interruptions. Usually if you transfer the docking stations usb cord plug to a different usb slot, the transfer goes haywire. Try transferring to a different usb slot...
If all else fails, get a card reader for your cameras memory card, it is way faster...
You should have a white docking station that the USB cord connects to. You can also install a memory card and remove the card and place it in a memory card reader if you do not have the docking station.
Part Number for the Docking station is: (CS-DC1)
If you do not have the docking station, I would try to contact Canon to see if it is available or check the auction sites.
Possible faulty connection between docking station and camera.
Depending on age of the camera- send it back for replacement from the seller or contact Casio.
Does this model have a removable memory card?
If so invest in a card reader - very cheap and more reliable than docking stations.
