  1. I've got a kodak dx6440 digital camera. I just want to aquire the pictures
    using twain in my normal paint package but the camera is not listed. Have
    they really dropped twain support?

  3. Hi Ron,

    Thanks for the reply. The problem is that I am writing my own software for use in dental surgeries. They will only use the camera
    with my software or if they use another package they will go through my software to do it. I want it to be as simple as possible for
    them to use, basically they push the button on the dock and my software comes up with the pictures. I have already done this in
    winXP using Windows Image Aquisition but without twain I can't do on older OSs, not even win2k. I have searched the kodak site for
    developer info but they only seam to have info for the professional cameras. Is there any way I can do this?

    Thanks

    Hi Mike,

    I can appreciate your need and though I wish I could offer some code or
    particulars, I do not have them.

    Also, due to a business decision within the KODAK DC Camera
    development/marketing team, technical support for all DC Camera developer
    tools were discontinued June 30, 2001.

    All SDK tools for the existing Kodak Cameras of the day were affected, along
    with all future consumer digital camera models. If you are working on a
    development project that requires these tools or support, you may wish to
    consider other alternatives. The closing of the DRG is a result of a
    business decision. Support for other Kodak developer tools (Kodak
    Professional cameras, scanners, and printers; inkjet media; Picture CD,
    Picture Metadata Toolkit, etc.) will continue as usual. We are sorry we
    cannot help any longer and I know the Kodak Developer Relations Group
    apologizes for any inconvenience this may create.

    I wish I could be of more help, Mike, and will if I can find any other
    advice. We did change the way we access our more current cameras and using
    TWAIN is not included.

    Talk to you soon,

  5. Hi Ron,
    At least I know these tools don't exist so I can stop looking for them :) It's very hard to find something doesn't exist.
    This is a pity, twain is a good standard and I think it is being replaced only because microsoft didn't invent it.

    Thanks for all your help, although I didn't get the answer I wanted I still got an answer so can start to look for a different
    solution for OSs before winXP.
