Jennie, with your camera came a CD. On that CD is the software you need to install on the computer, before you can connect the camera to the computer. On the CD are also drivers, for every type of computer. If you don't have the CD, sometimes after registering the camera online you can download the software. If nothing works, you always can use an external card reader end put the memory card in that. For a card reader you (most of the time) don't need any software, because most operating systems have drivers for the card readers.
Ejecting a CD is easy as soon as you power on your laptop and get a beep sound just push the eject button on the CD ROM. In case even after that the CD is not ejecting then kindly take a paper pin and look for a very small hole next to eject button and push with the help of the paper pin inside as you might push a small button on television with a paper pin. CD will be ejected. It seems that you were earlier using win XP and due to some reason your hdd has corrupted. You have chosen the best option by installing win7 as this is the only available software which does not require a format, hence, all your data either in C drive or anywhere is safe. If you require any further assistance kindly comment.
Skip the installing of any software, unless you like the Canon editing or viewing software, if that is on the cd. Get a card reader for this machine, and skip any drivers whatsoever. By using a card reader/writer it is not necessary to get any software or drivers on your machine from Canon. The card reader will read as another drive.
you had better remove it from inside the drive first I think. these small CDs do infact run in what appears to be a big CD drive. they need to be positioned in the exact center of the moulded guide that takes the Normal CD/DVD. As for downloading the software, it is probable that it can be but as the brand was not included in the description i can only suggest you search for it via google.
This type of camera is mostly designed and made in China, and is usually unsupported in vista. For XP you can try installing the driver came in a CD along with your device. You can also try for alternate way. If the camera uses a memory card, you can buy a card reader. Then you do not have to install any of the software that came with the camera. Any store that sells digital cameras will sell memory card readers. Prices run from $10 to $20. You can attach the card reader to your computer USB port and Vista will recognize the reader as being a new hard disk. Vista will load the correct drivers. After that is done, install the memory card (full of photos) into the card reader. Then you can use Windows Explorer or My Computer to find the new hard disk (which will be the memory card). Use drag and drop to move the photos to your computer.
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.
Ok, so you commited the sacriledge of installing Windows on a Mac. Enough complaining... The Mac hardware is really tight to the Mac software. Some features of the Mac aren't understood by Vista (and XP for the matter). I ask myself if the F12 (eject cd) is working under Vista?
Ok I just magically fixed my d-card reader, maybe this will work for everyone else as well: It seems really simple, but I unplugged the d-card reader from the USB port, and plugged it back in. A window popped up saying "New hardware found" and asked if I wanted to install the new hardware. With the install disc in the drive, I clicked ok for it to install and it just did it and it works now. I didn't open the install program on the cd (at which point before it told me I didn't have the right customizing software and it couldn't be installed), I just did it this way instead. It was quick and easy... give it a try and good luck!
