Battery Problem I was given an SD9 last month and so far like it except for some battery issues. Using fresh AA's it will often give me the 'low battery' warning as soon as they are loaded. I bought the CRV3's thinking that would solve it, it did initially, but after about 40 shots I took them out, tried some new AA's and again the low battery warning... replaced them with the CRV3's again, low battery (surely they were not run out after 40 shots?!) Everything is fine using power cable... but

I have a Kodak Easyshare M1063 that I've had for almost 1.5 years, so it's no longer under warranty. I recently had to replace the battery, and since then, I've been having problems with it. Not all the pictures transfer via the Easyshare software. I've found a workaround for that by inserting the SD card into my laptop and transferring them that way (bypassing the proprietary Kodak software). The last time I did that, however, when I reinserted the SD card and powered on the camera, the shu

Sloooooowww speed I LOVED my 20D the first two years I had it. Then last spring it started slowing down - I was no longer able to fire off shots like before in multi-shot mode. Then one day it wouldn't stop clicking off shots. I turned it off, took the battery out and let it sit for a bit. Then it stopped working altogether and I got an error 99. It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it
