    I had used my K DC 4800 and just acquired a new Dell which has Xp (and Media
    center s/ware )whereas before I used one with W98.I can't get the PC to
    recognize the camera.I boot the PC and am asked for a disk and use the one
    that came with the camera but it stops with a message stating that this
    program may not be Xp compatible and to see the mnfactr for a
    solution.Kodak's site filled with frighteningly happy (overmedicated?)
    people and directs me to a program called Easyshare which is a photo
    viewer/sorter.When I connect the USB cable to the PC and turn the camera
    on,the camera shows activity as if it is d/ling the pix but since their is
    no folder I'm not sure what is going on.When I go to easyshare and "open" I
    see many drives (this PC has about 5 extra external slots as well as 6 USB
    slots) but it does NOT recognize a camera.When I go to device mnger it show
    a DC4800 wth a yellow question mark over it suggesting a conflict.
    I have extra batteries (Kodak KLC-3000 Li-ion,chargers and case as well
    as a 64MB flash card.The camera is beginning to produce blurry pics unless I
    use flash setting and then they are crystal clear.
    I see my choices as
    1)Kodak might give me supprt as their site promises
    2)new camera-can I use this flash card/batteries and fast charger in another
    3)some type of flash card reader which will plug into USB or many extyrenal
    drive ports

    If you are using WinXP then you should not need a "driver" for the
    camera-computer connexion.

    If you are using the Kodak "Easy Share" docking hardware, I know not what
    that is like.

    All I know is if I connect a camera (I've tried this with a number including
    a Kodak) to my WinXP computer via the USB cable it recognises it as a
    "removable disk" and I just drag the files from the camera to the computer.

    As for the Kodak Easy Share software, it is almost as insidious as Norton's
    Internet Security.
