i cam across the ad here a few mins ago and was going to reply cause i was having the same issue, well i took my battery out and charged it thinking that it might have got cold. no that wasnt it so i was mad and i was thinking o what the heck its not working now so i took it and banged it in the palm of my hand on the sides of the camera and the top and bottom not the back or front. this done something to it cause it came back on and asked for date and time stamp lol i might have found a way to fix a head ache after all lol. please if you do this dont hit it to hard for it could mess the lcd screen up. just a few taps on the bottom,top and both sides. and let me know if this works for you also.

You can always search for a video converter for your camera. As far as I was aware, video files are in a AVI format which should be able to play with quicktime player, VLC media player or even windows media player as long as you have windows codec pack or vista codec pack downloaded.

Use a separate card reader instead of your camera to download to a folder you create on your desktop.

You could have a problem that requires professional repair, but a simple download MIGHT solve the problem. I suggest that you visit the Kodak download site (link below) and install the latest firmware for your camera. While you're there you might also want to download and install the latest EasyShare software.

SOURCE: Is the kodak easy share c180 digital camera webcam?

I won't say the camera is usable as a webcam because you will definitely severly shorten the life of the camera by using it as such. Firstly the camera is designed to take photos and short videos, NOT being left on continuously for use as a webcam. The heat generated by doing so could damage the delicate CCD (the part which collects light from the lens and converts it into electrical signals) Secondly most cameras are deigned to switch themselves off after a certain period of non use. Not handy for webcams.

Next there's the power issue. Unless you are using an external power supply for the camera you will be forever replacing batteries and for what an external power supply costs you could buy a proper made for the job USB powered WebCam complete with focus and sometimes zoom.

Next there's the mounting issue. Where will you mount the camera to give a well lit and steady picture of your face. Definitely not on top of the monitor due to extra heat generated by the monitor itself. Mix that with camera's heat and hello, and too soon, goodbye camera.

Webcams cost $20 if ou shop around maybe cheaper. OK your cmera will give a better picture but at the distance you're talking it won't matter. Plus you will need software to generate the webcam picture. MSN is a good webcam program. Plus depending on the output of the camera, usually only video. You may need a video capture card for your computer. The camera will give you a full screen image of what it's pointed at but you need a box to put a smaller picture in on the screen otherwise all you will see is one big face, yours.

So do you really want to wear your camera out prematurely simply because you can't afford a $20 webcam. The made for the job unit is cheap, will stay on all day and the power comes from the USB port. Everything you need and cheap. I think you know which way to go.

Good luck

Bought a new Lexar 8GB memory card and having trouble formatting it for the Kodak Easy Share V530


The V530 works with SD cards. Your new 8GB card is an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to go with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Please explain how I can download my photos from my Kodak Easy Share Z981 Camera. Having trouble


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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
