Kodak DC120 (old), XP and CompactFlash Questions

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Fred Finisterre, Sep 9, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    A friend has an old (6 years or so) DC120. I know it won't work with XP, so
    I was gonna get him a compact Flash card and a USB or PCMCIA adapter/reader.

    Anyone know if the camera can handle a 64MB Compact Flash or is this too
    big? The manual says you can add an extra 2MB Kodak Picture card (I think
    they mean Compact Flash) but I don't know if it can handle memory cards this
    big.

    I was thinking of getting this combo http://tinyurl.com/mpiv

    Cheers,

    Jason.

    I have a 120 that is like new and works great. I don't know what you mean
    by "won't work with XP'. I several 64 meg cards and unless I am missing
    something I don't see why they or larger cards would not work.

    mean
    The Kodak site says the software doesn't work with XP. Are you saying
    different? Or do you use a USB/CF adapter?

    I was worried the camera may not be able to address a 64MB card since it
    was so old, but if you say it can - cool.

    Cheers.

    Doesn't work or "don't suport"? When they "don't support" something
    it means:

    1) We haven't tested it to see if it works or not;
    2) We don't provide any help (support) if you use this software on
    that OS.

    Try it and see if it works! Often the software still works in the
    newer OS.

    Software works fine on my XP Pro system. I place the 64Megs cards in my
    printer to read from windows but I have used other readers. All work fine.

    Greetings Fred,

    Was away on vacation last week and am now getting caught up on my messaging.

    The DC120 camera is great and still should work fine in terms of image
    capture etc. It uses the KDC format. So, since the software is not
    compatible with XP (supported), I would suggest the use of another program
    such as Irfanview. It will read a KDC file from your card and reader and
    convert it to a JPG as an output option. Irfanview is freeware.

    Also, the camera will accept any certified CFC card (has a black diamond on
    it) I believe the cards are quite large in capacity at this point, 1 gig,
    but considering the fact that the image sizes are not that large, you could
    likely get away with something much smaller.

    Talk to you soon,

    I also use the DC120 software on a number of XP Pro systems with no
    problems. 64 M CF cards work fine too. The big benefit of going to
    cards rather than direct connect is it's much faster, as the transfer
    directly from the camera is painfully slow.

    Many programs will convert the KDC format pictures to JPEG or others,
    if you want to bypass the Kodak software altogether. I use Paint Shop
    Pro and ACDSee.
