Question about Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera
When I connect my camera to my MacBook it doesn't find sync. I am unable to download pics from my camera.
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Have you tried using an external card reader?
They look similar to this at Wal-Mart:
I own a mac and always use an external usb card reader to download my pics and it works great. Also, I know that you need to get your pics off first, but you may need to reformat you card at some point so that it will read faster and work quicker in your camera.
For your software issue, have you tried download the software from kodak's website? The program shouldn't cause your apple to crash. I would try re-installing it from there website.

How are you uploading your images. If you are using a USB cable to your camera try going to memory card and a card reader. A memory card and card reader are seen by your computer the same as a hard drive.

SOURCE: After upgrading to MAC OS
Problem is a well known issue between Snow Leopard and several cameras. You will need to play with installed software and setting. Here different work around.
Temprarily turn Bluetooth off. See here.
Try installing the following: Adobe - Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter
If that does not work, try setting the Mac with camera mass storage in USB mode, I quote a testimonial from this forum:
"I found a workaround/solution for my issue. My camera has two USB modes: "Mass Storage (USB DIRECT-PRINT)" and "PTP (PictBridge)". I've always used PTP with my mac and everything has been fine. But apparently iPhoto on OSX 10.6 no longer likes PTP (keep in mind that Image Capture handles the camera fine in PTP mode). When I switched it to Mass Storage mode, it works fine now in iPhoto."
If still no luck, change preference to image capture, I quote:
"1) ejecting the "camera name" from the desktop. I had to do this step because I had tried to connect to iPhoto and it didn't work.
2) Going to iPhoto prefs and selecting Connecting camera opens "Image Capture" - not iPhoto.
3) Connecting the camera again. Image Capture opens.
4) In image capture selecting from the bottom left hand corner Connecting camera opens "iPhoto"
5) iPhoto magically opened and I could import and delete."
If still no luck, do a new upgrade using a combo installer, see here.
If all that does not work, contact Apple, camera is supported by Snow Leopard and they must find a solution. See: Apple - How to Contact Us.
Ensure that you try all workaround, there is no "one for all Macs" solution for this problem.
If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.

Use a cardreader instead of the camera and upload to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can import to iPhoto.
