If you can connect the camera to your PC via a cable, normally USB, to browse the contents of the camera's internal memory then try simply to do a search on the camera's 'drive' for .png, .jpeg or .jpg, .bmp or any other filetype that your camera would use. Your PC should be able to find any files using those file types and display them. From there you can copy or cut and paste them to a location on your PC's hard drive. You may have to make sure that your computer has Show Hidden Files and Folders turned on under Folder Options. Normally, a camera saves all videos and pictures in a folder called DCIM, even on internal storage.
There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it. DO NOT format the card until you've BACKED UP your files from it (typically to a PC or USB drive (stick or external hard drive).
First make sure the card is not locked. Do this by checking on the side of the card that the lock notch is not in the locked position. If it is not locked then you should put the card in your computer and reformat it. If this isn't successful then its time to go get a new card. You can get a new one for under $20.
I'm assuming you have a memory card inserted into your camera? You can use SD or SDHC cards up to 32GB in size. Then, if you look in your camera's manual (direct link if you don't have yours... http://resources.kodak.com/support/pdf/en/manuals/urg01118/Z981_xUG_GLB_en.pdf ) you can see on page 36 how to copy an image from your internal memory onto a memory card. Also, on page 45 you can learn how to use the menu to tell the camera to use the memory card instead of the internal memory. Good luck!
make sure that the card is not locked, there might be a little tab on the side of it that slides up and down.
If doesn't work, it probably needs to be reformatted once you get all your pictures off of it.
(you will lose everything)
When reformatting it, make sure that you use the FAT or FAT32 setting.
Do you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" function when you disconnect? Most times, nothing goes wrong but it only takes once for your current problem to happen. My advice would be to reset the camera. The "reset"command can usually be found in the camera menu.
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.
After downloading the pictures to your computer, place the memory card back into the camera and format it.
