    My camera never even was dropped and it started the error 14 then goes to error 22 and shuts off. The lens doesn't even at all. It's out of warranty is there anyway to fix it by taking it apart?

I bought two of these on clearance and gave one to my in-laws. She suspected that one of her kids may have dropped the camera or pushed in the lens. I don't remember which lens error number had shown up, but I dis-assembled the camera to find out what the deal was. If I remember correctly, there is a way to manually turn the gears to put he lens back out. I left the lens out and turned it on and it worked perfectly. Fair warning though. It is VERY IMPORTANT not to touch the contacts for the flash EVEN WITH THE BATTERIES OUT!!! God did it hurt like hell... unfortunately it is fairly easy to do and I must have accidentally done it about 4-5 times while messing with it..

1GB card for Kodak C330

The C330 uses MMC and SD cards, up to 2GB in size. You should be able to find 2GB SD cards at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. 1GB cards are a little harder to find, as they've been pretty much replaced by 2GB cards. Even if you do find a 1GB card, it's probably not going to cost any less than a 2GB card. There's no disadvantage to using 2GB cards instead of 1GB cards.

Camera is a C330. I've tried several sizes of memory cards but the same message keeps coming up saying the Memory Card is Full. I've ttried reformatting the card via the camera but I keep getting...

Hello. There is a setting on C330 which you can change in order to use only internal memory. This needs to be changed back to the default.

All you have to do is to turn on the camera then go to Menu -> Setup Menu -> Format -> Internal Memory -> Ok.

I hope this will help!

When I turn the camera on the lens will not open and extend, I have new batterys in.

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Lost my kodak c330 camera driver. How do I get it

You don't need a driver.

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.

Memory card

I experienced the same problem with my Kodak C330. I took it to Walgreens and the tech stated that the C330 was created before 2 GB memory cards were invented; therefore, the software inside it doesn't recognize a larger GB capacity. In short, the C330 has a 1GB max capacity. Considering you can take 1200 pictures with a 1GB card, a larger size really isn't necessary.
