    My Kodak DC-280 with its software worked ok in USB mode in Windows ME. But
    when I upgraded to XP the DC-280 does not show as a drive in My Computer.
    It does show in Device Manager and it makes a beep when connecting and
    disconnecting. I have installed the recommended Kodak EasyShare software
    because the old software does not work with XP. How can I get the computer
    to recognize the DC-280 as a drive?

    Greetings Harvey,

    To use your camera with WINDOWS XP Operating System, do not install the
    software that was shipped with your, camera. Actually, WINDOWS XP Operating
    System comes with drivers that will allow you to connect to your KODAK
    Camera and take advantage of the EASYSHARE System. Since you have already
    loaded EasyShare software, you are all set.

    When you connect your camera to your computer, you will be prompted to
    select which application to launch, select KODAK EASYSHARE Software. Also
    check the box that allows EASYSHARE Software to always be the application
    that launches when you connect your camera.

    As an alternative to using the KODAK Camera Connection Software, the
    MICROSOFT WIA drivers can be used in conjunction with KODAK EasyShare
    Software. This is also used for non-EasyShare cameras who's original
    drivers are not supported on WINDOWS XP.

    Give this a try, Harvey, and if you have questions, let me know.

    Talk to you soon,

    Ron when I connect the camera, and turn the dial on the camera to "CONNECT",
    all I get is a beep. Nothing launches like it used to with the original
    DC-280 software and Windows ME. When I disconnect the cable, or turn the
    camera off, or change the dial on the camera from connect to another mode, I
    get another beep.

    I do not know if this is related, but when I try to open my scanner in
    Picture It!, I get a "Something went wrong opening up WIA" error message.
    If I click through it then Picture It! will work for that one scan.

    So the DC-280 does not show as a drive, does not show in My Computer and is
    unable to launch a program. Yet is shows in Device Manager and is
    recognized partially because the computer beeps. The camera is working fine
    and the Compact Flash images can be transferred by means of a card reader
    but that is not want I am wanting to do.
