    Hi,
    I bought a DX4530 on a good offer, its maybe not ideal, but the price was
    right. I have the Camera connection software unstalled under Win98. Problem
    is that the drive (G: in this case) does not show up in Explorer
    automatically. If I enter G: in Explorer, then I can see the Camera and get
    the pictures from it.
    Just wondering why the drive does not appear of its own accord under Windows?

    Cheers Brian

    Aw,
    caught out. I do in fact have Win98SE. And all other USB devices seem to
    work OK. They are connected to a NEC USB2.0 PCI Controller which has its own
    extra drivers.
    Cheers Brian

    I have a Kodak DX4330 and originally could transfer photos via the Kodak
    Easyshare software on my old Compaq machine, using Windows 98 1st edition,
    although the camera didn't show as a separate drive in Explorer. When I
    bought my present computer, running Windows 98SE, the camera still didn't
    show as a separate drive in Explorer, although I could see it in Device
    Manager. I also could no longer transfer images directly from the camera
    using the USB connection, even after upgrading to the latest version of
    Easyshare software. After many complaints and discussions with Kodak, they
    eventually sent me a free SD card reader and a 64MB memory card. Using this
    reader, I've had no further problems. I really believe that a problem
    exists with Easyshare and Windows 98.

    Terry,
    at first I thought it wasn't recognised as an external drive, but then
    looking at that tiny window that appears bottom right when the Camera is
    turned on, that always showed a drive letter.
    I guess you must be in the US if you got something for free from Kodak,
    European consumers generally aren't treated that well (by any firms).

    BTW I very quickly trashed the rest of the Kodak Software.

    Cheers Brian
