Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 Digital Camera ?

I've been trying to upload pictures but whenever i plug in my Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285, it won't synchronize and a screen comes up saying the device information can not be found.. how can i sync my pictures?


Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.\012\012\012

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
