Question about Kodak EasyShare DX4900 Zoom Digital Camera

3 Answers

Connection Problem I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I recently bought a Kodak DX4900 & installed the software onto my computer. After taking some photos, I tried transferring the photos to my computer, but it appears that my computer just isn't seeing the camera. I've uninstalled the software & re-installed it, defragged my computer & run a scandisk & the problem still hasn't been fixed. I'm not particularly computer literate at the best of times, and am stuck. I have a new camera that I can't use. Not sure if this helps, but I'm running Windows Millennium Edition. Has anybody else had this problem, if so, how was it fixed?

I had the same problem with my DX4900. After reinstalling software, etc it finally turned out that the cable that connects the camera to the computer was bad. Kodak has specs for the DX4900 on the kodak website or if you have a different model you can match up your camera with your kodak usb cable.

Another possibility, which I experienced with my Kodak DC-4800 camera, was that it worked with Windows 98 but not Windows XP. Like you, my camera was simply not even recognized by the computer. It turned out to be a firmware issue. There is a way to update your firmware via the Kodak Site and downloading the updated version. I happened to have a warranty issue at the time so they updated the firmware at the same time as they repaired the camera, and I cannot be specific how to do it at home. However, I would call their 800 number and see what help they can offer. I hope this helps.

I have a Kodak DX4330 and to my knowledge, do you remember if your dock or usb that you plug the camera into was plugged in when you installed the software? I think that if you have it plugged in and install the software and then try and transfer the images, it doesn't work. You can try to re-install the software and make sure the camera dock/cable isn't plugged in and if that doesn't work, make sure the little kodak symbol on the start taskbar is visible when you press the share button. i hope that this helps you.

Can't find software download.


You don't need the Kodak software.

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 such as Picasa.

Mary, you can download the software from http://download.Kodak.com/digital/software/easyShare/v8_3_0/install_easyshare.exe

Press the SAVE button, find a place on your hard drive and save the file. Double click the install_easyshare.exe file and it will install the file. Follow the instructions below.

The file is good for KODAK EASYSHARE Software - WINDOWS Operating Systems
Installation Instructions
  1. Verify that your computer meets the system requirements. note.gif NOTE: APPLE QUICKTIME Player is required for some software features. Visit APPLE to download the latest version of the QUICKTIME Player.
  2. Disconnect all accessory devices from your computer (digital camera, camera dock, printer dock, photo printer, card reader, etc.).
  3. Verify that you logged on to the computer using the administrator account.
  4. Close all programs.
  5. Download the software, then follow the on-screen instructions to install the software.
  6. To launch the software select Start > Programs > Kodak > Kodak EasyShare > Kodak Easyshare software.
important.gif IMPORTANT: If you have a large picture collection, allow a few minutes after your computer restarts before starting EASYSHARE Software. EASYSHARE Software windows appear after your previous picture catalog has been updated

After the installation are completed, reboot if not asked to do so. You can copy the install_easyshare.exe file to a CD for later installation if needed.

Good luck and post back to let me know how it went.

I just bought A Kodak esp 3250 series AIO printer. I can print from computer, copy and all that but whenever I try to scan to computer or even preview scan I get a error saying :An error occurred while...


Try a new USB cable. Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer and thus can fail when printer itself works. (If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Also try changing USB ports.

Another thing to try is to remove the TWAIN driver and reinstall it. This requires the original software CD from Kodak.
1. From your computer desktop, click Start > Run. (In Windows 7, type run in the search box then click on Run.)
2. Type %windir%, then click OK.
3. Double-click twain_32.
4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete.
5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to D: > printer > scanner.
NOTE: The CD is indicated by D: above. The CD drive may be a different letter on your computer.
6. Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it.
7. Go to D: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file.
8. Open Home Center Software:
a. Select Scan Documents and Pictures.
b. Scan a document.

Unfortunately, if the error persists, the scanner may need service. Contact Kodak: http://www.kodak.com/go/contact .

I hope this helps.
