Question Digital camera problems

Recently bought a Kodak cx4230 digital camera but there is one problem. When I try to transfer the photos from the camera to the computer the computer tells me that it cannot detect the camera. The camera is connected through the USB port. The USB port works becasue i run a steering wheel off it and it works fine. Tried all the lastest software (from the Kodak site etc) but that doesnt make a difference.

Any ideas?

Getting annoying this is.

The camera works at the shop no problem.

I have the cx4300 with the docking station and it works sweet. Maybe you could lash out the extra $100 for the docking station and solve all the probs !

Also, have you installed the correct software for the camera.
If the firmware has been upgraded or changed at all, the camera might not be working with the computer properly.
I upgraded the firmware on my Kodak DC4800, and had to then download the new software!!

Hey, I just gone through this with my Pentax 330GS & got it working last weekend.
My Windows ME home PC seems to take a long time to identify camera but try these steps they eventually worked for me:
* with the camera connected to the PC via the USB port/cable, turn the camera ON,
* if Windows fails to recognise the camera, go to start, settings, control panel & add/remove hardware,
* follow the prompts to automatically detect hardware, if this fails Windows should ask you to specify a hardware type, have the system treat the camera as a removable storage device (this appears to be the main trick!)
* hardware settings should update & an extra disk drive added to your system
NB. I think its a good idea to have the optional AC power option for you camera, as your camera may not be powered via the USB cable (mine isn't) & you can flatten the camera batteries.
Perhaps the Kodak 'Docking' option works differently?

USB is hot-pluggable(?), try removing and installing the usb plug at the computer with the camera on and connected. Should get some sort of message.

I take it the camera switch/knob is set to download?

You haven't said what version of Windows you are using.

My daughter has the same camera as you BA GT - HO, all she did was load the software. Then when you want to download the photos from the camera plus the USB cable into the back of the computer and into the camera, then turn the camera on. She had to unplug the cord from the computer once and restart it and then plug it back in.

mine is a cx4200.

It wont recognise the camera if i plug it in when the camera is turned on.

What i do,

Start software,
make sure camera is off and plug in,
turn on,
wait for software to pick it up
