    Have you tried 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.

How do I transfer my pictures from the kodak easyshare to the shutterfly gallery? I cannot even transfer my recently added pictures to the Kodak gallery.


If your pictures are in jpg format, you can download Picasa, free from Google at http://picasa.google.com/ and use it to upload your photos. You can also do it using your browser if it handles Flash. If not, use the one by one uploader at Shutterfly. I recommend using Picasa, because it will find all the pictures on your PC and sort them by date. It includes a photo editor and facial recognition too. I would drag all your pictures to the "Pictures" folder to make it easier to work with them.

I'm trying to reload my edited videos onto a new computer - but they're no longer opening. instead it says the original files don't exist and asks if i want to relink. we saved all our videos onto our...


It sounds like the problem is with the linking between the video editing software, and what you used to make the video originally. When you import things like pictures and videos into the software, it just takes the path to the videos (such as C:\\Program Files) When you move the software to another computer, that path is changed and the videos(original files) are no longer where the editor thinks they are. If you still have your old computer, get on it, and either export or publish the video as a video file (such as .mp4 or .wmv) These aren't linked to the original files, and should transfer easily. Hope this helps!

My pictures transfer to the computer too slowly.


If you are transferring Tiff files or video clips, you can expect the transfer to take much longer than it does for JPEG files, due to large file sizes. The transfer speed is especially slow when you are using a serial connection. If your system has less than 32MB RAM, the transfer speed may be slow. Try using virtual memory. See your computer documentation or system help for more information. Check the port setting in your Windows Control Panel. You may need to set your port to a faster speed. See your Windows documentation or help system for more information. If you're transferring pictures to an application through EPSON Photo!3 and you use the PhotoEnhance(tm) feature, the transfer will take longer. Try transferring without PhotoEnhance.
