I have a Kodak Easyshare CX4310 camera that loses the current date and reverts back to original factory settings (01/01/2002) randomly between battery changes.
I have the date set to imprint on the photos, so I would like to know if the pictures I took and the wrong date appears on them-- if there is a way to change the date that appears on the bottom right of the photos?
I've tried looking on the Kodak website as well as searching the EasyShare software, is there like a 'backdoor' that will allow me to change the date?
This camera has an internal clock battery, which must keep the date or any other related information while you changing the batteries, the problem is, since you camera is pretty old, the clock battery is probably long dead, it can be changed, but it will require disassembling and resoldering

Hi Ron, I share your frustration with this lovely "feature" In addition if you set your column sizes differently to the defaults while you are working they will reset as well when you shut off the program.
The only solution I have come up with is to use the manual captions to keep my photos in the order that I want them - I currently have 28060 photos in Easyshare, so it's a big job!
Give some thought to how you want to sequence your shots - if it's only a few for a specific purpose you can number them (you will need leading zeros though as the captions are sorted as if they are text). IE 1 10 100 20 will be in that order unless you type 001 010 020 100 ...
Also use your Album names cleverly - there is no reason why the same photo cant be in more than one album. For example, there is no reason why a "Photo of Betty at the seaside" cant be placed in all of the following albums simultaneously "Betty" "Holiday snaps" "seaside Pictures" etc
Yes, 2 AA batteries. Just insert them correctly. They don't last as long as the CRV3 lithium battery pack though

I bought the CRV3 battery and charger at Radio Shack and
Bought it 3 years ago, still using the same battery after taking 1,000's of
pics. I also keep a pair of regular AA's as a back up when I'm away from home
