    Hi,

    I've searched the archives of this group for an answer to my question,
    but haven't found anything directly on point (yet). So, I thought I'd
    take a shot and ask.

    I recently switched my digital camera from a Panasonic to the Kodak
    EasyShare. The former's software was no problem. Like others, I'm
    having difficulty with the EasyShare software, namely it
    freezes/crashes my computer and other programs.

    I don't really care for the Kodak software anyway. Is there a way to
    bypass it altogether and just install something that would enable me
    to transfer the photos from the camera to my computer?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    TIA,
    Maddie

    I didn't install the software. Just plug the USB cord into the camera and
    if you have XP the camera appears as a removable drive. Drag and drop your
    heart out. If you have an older operating system, you will need a driver.

    Thank you so much! I hate when things linger after uninstalling, and
    yours is excellent advice.

    You can only install the CSS (camera support) part of the package. This
    will support loading the data from the camera using your file manager.
    I also find the Kodak software less than appealing, although it runs
    fine on my machines.

    Why can't the cops get the images off the card? Is there something
    about the Kodak cameras that require the dock? The card can't be read
    in a card reader?

    I have a dock, and find it charges the batteries well. Of course it
    isn't currently attached to the USB interface as I much prefer reading
    the cards with a card reader. I also don't use the Kodak software. It
    may be fine for non-technical users, but just doesn't operate the way I
    want it to, so I don't use it. I see no problem with this.

    As for your USB cable problem, just order a new one from Kodak.

    Why NOT?
    Is there something about the card's format that won't let the image
    files be downloaded without the dock?

    Tghat's what I waqs wondering about.
    It was said that a friend's camera was stolen, the thiefs had taken
    pics of themselves (obviously, they could be seen in the camera's
    LCD), and the hope was expressed that he cops would be able to get the
    pics ("So now she's hoping the cops can get the images off the SD
    card.") I was wondering why someone couldn't just put the card into a
    reader and get them.

    If they can't, then they need to hire smarter cops!

    Maybe it is because most of the people they deal with aren't either...
    We need a new kind of cop to deal with computer related crimes.
