Question about Kodak EasyShare DX4900 Zoom Digital Camera

3 Answers

Connection Problem I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I recently bought a Kodak DX4900 & installed the software onto my computer. After taking some photos, I tried transferring the photos to my computer, but it appears that my computer just isn't seeing the camera. I've uninstalled the software & re-installed it, defragged my computer & run a scandisk & the problem still hasn't been fixed. I'm not particularly computer literate at the best of times, and am stuck. I have a new camera that I can't use. Not sure if this helps, but I'm running Windows Millennium Edition. Has anybody else had this problem, if so, how was it fixed?

I had the same problem with my DX4900. After reinstalling software, etc it finally turned out that the cable that connects the camera to the computer was bad. Kodak has specs for the DX4900 on the kodak website or if you have a different model you can match up your camera with your kodak usb cable.

Another possibility, which I experienced with my Kodak DC-4800 camera, was that it worked with Windows 98 but not Windows XP. Like you, my camera was simply not even recognized by the computer. It turned out to be a firmware issue. There is a way to update your firmware via the Kodak Site and downloading the updated version. I happened to have a warranty issue at the time so they updated the firmware at the same time as they repaired the camera, and I cannot be specific how to do it at home. However, I would call their 800 number and see what help they can offer. I hope this helps.

I have a Kodak DX4330 and to my knowledge, do you remember if your dock or usb that you plug the camera into was plugged in when you installed the software? I think that if you have it plugged in and install the software and then try and transfer the images, it doesn't work. You can try to re-install the software and make sure the camera dock/cable isn't plugged in and if that doesn't work, make sure the little kodak symbol on the start taskbar is visible when you press the share button. i hope that this helps you.
