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?

Re: Connection Problem

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.

Re: Connection Problem

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.

Re: Connection Problem

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.

I wanted to transfer some pictures onto my computer, but my computer wont read it. My camera charges and it works fine but when i go to "my computer" my camera won't show up on there. please...


I am not sure how new/old your camera is but when I had that problem I had to re-install the Kodak software that came with my camera. It worked fine after that. My new Kodak i just bought-(of which i am not a fan of Kodak but had to go cheap when looking for a long zoom) worked right away without installing anything-it didn't come with a disk either; however; it showed up in the My Pictures section not the My computer..so maybe check there...best of luck

My kodak DX4900 just completely locked up and wen i turn it on the top screen says e 13


This is a lens error. KODAK suggests a repair for this fault.

However due to spare part shortage this model is no longer repaired. Instead KODAK offers a trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.

Downloading from my camera through my port


A friend of mine was having the same problem and come to find out, she was going onto the Kodak website to transfer the pictures. I told her that she doesn't have to do that, just press the button from the dock (sometimes you have to hold it down for a few seconds) and a box opens up in the right hand corner on your computer screen, click transfer all. sometimes I have to play with it a few times for it to go. I have had the DX6440 for almost 5 years and have had good luck with it. As a matter of fact, I love it. I recently bought an Olympus E-Volt 500 and I like my little Kodak better, especially for close ups. I hope maybe this solution will help, I know it did help my friend. She was going crazy and that's all it was. Now my Olympus, I have to transfer from the site. Hope this helps!
