Help in getting Photos not formatted Kodak imaging
I have been trying to get about 80 fotos I misplaced and found in Kodak Imaging on C Drive; My documents.
They are there with the little title I gave them but when I click to retrieve them it comes up with "The document format is invalid or not supported." Any way to get these pictures back? Please help. Very important to me.

Re: Help in getting Photos not formatted Kodak imaging
As Cursor mentioned, your use of the term 'retrieve' is confusing. I'm assuming that you want to view these pictures, and that the error you are getting is because you no longer have the program you created the images with installed on the computer. Many imaging programs save their created files in some kind of format (extension) other than .jpg or .gif or .bmp type. The extensions I just mentioned are ones that Windows recognizes and associates a viewer for them. If your Kodak imaging program actually saved them in another type of extension, you should try reinstalling that Kodak program so that its viewer will make the association again....then as you can open each image, click File, Save AS from Kodak's toolbar, and save the image as one of the three file types I've mentioned from the dropdown arrow box (FILETYPE box). This means that you will now have two copies of that image.....one in the extension Kodak used, and one in the extension that Windows can also view for you.
Then if you don't want the Kodak Imaging program installed anymore, after you have saved all of your images in a Windows type of extension, you can uninstall the program and you will still have a copy of the image that Windows will be able to view for you.
I hope I have understood your problem and my suggestion helps you get the images working again.

As long as they are in mounts that are 2 inches square, they will work. Given the age of the slides, chances are that they are not perfectly flat any more - - so I would choose a Kodak 80 Slide Tray (as opposed to their 140 Slide Tray. The individual slide compartments in a 80 Slide Tray are wider and will be more forgiving if your slides are slightly warped. If you need to buy a slide tray, contact Vine Valley Imaging (www.vinevalleyimaging.com). Good Luck! Jim
1. You might be able to download foto's from the camera, when you do it manually from within the installed Olympus program. Windows XP has problems with auto downloading foto's from ib. 2. Otherwise, check if the computer is recognizing the camera (see LCD) and with the Explorer if a removeable memory device is available from the camera. 3. Try putting the camera into another USB port, or try the camera on another computer. 4. As an alternative, you might want to install a better and also free Olympus program: http://support.olympus-imaging.com/ov2download/index/?Lang=ENU
Some of the reasons why you are not able to view some of you fotos quickly as others may be because:
> Some foto qualities are higher than others and require a few minutes to adjust to this setting.
> Some fones automatically go back into normal mode after use and adjusting zoom/camera functions requires foto to adjust to new mode and screen size.
>Some fones change foto format to suit foto quality etc.
This is generally an issue with the imaging chip. I've seen this on other cameras and it's typically been a blown CCD chip (which "captures" the image....) If it's a new or under warranty camera, send it to the manufacturer, if it's out of warranty, it's cheaper to simply replace the camera.
When you fist connect the camera, the computer performs an initial scan of all the images on the card. This can take a while with slower cards and if there is a lot of images, slower again. Sometimes an error on the card may even slow things down as well. If you manage to get your pictures off the card, try formatting it using the format option in the cameras menu and see if that improves perfomance. Otherwise a better card may be in order.
First, if you want those photos, dont do anything else to the card yet. Use a utilty like RECUVA (you'll find it at http://www.filehippo.com/download_recuva/) it is good at retrieving images from cards in these situations. and better yet its free.
When you are satisfied that all is lost or found...you'll again need to format the card with the camera not the computer. I would also check with the cameras manufacturer website. look for a Firmware update. if one is posted get that and apply it. Some Flash memery cards have advanded features that cameras need updating to handle.
Finally if this keep happending try a new memory card, flash can have defects.
images obtained from the Fuji FinePix Pro S1 digital camera that are saved as TIFF-YC (also called Tagged Image File Format YCbCr or Yb). TIFF files cannot be opened with any of the programs that are native to WinXP, other Microsoft imaging programs, or most third-party software. The TIFF-YC format is antiquated and you should avoid it. Instead, save images as JPEGs (Joint Photographic Experts Group) or some other format.
