No More Uploads

I spent about two hours online and on the telephone with Kodak tech support yesterday. Because of a change with either Microsoft updates or Kodak Easyshare software, I never could decipher which and I don’t think they wanted me to, I can no longer upload pictures from my camera. I get a “USB not recognized” error message. I am not very happy about it either. I’ve had this camera less than a year.

Tech Support was very nice and we tried several different options. I uninstalled and reinstalled the software, then tried a couple of other things. But none worked. So they decided that maybe it’s my cable. I really don’t think so. I just uploaded pictures last week with no problem.

So now I have a camera but cannot upload my pictures. I’ll have to go to one of the Wal’s (Walmart or Walgreens) and get photos and a cd from them every time I need a picture. So no quick shots and uploads. Not much use in having a digital camera if you can’t upload them. And the funds aren’t available right now for a new one so I’ll just have to make do.

So if anyone is in the market for a camera I do not recommend a Kodak. I’ve never been satisfied with it, it eats batteries like crazy, but now this latest malfunction has turned me against the big K for good. My little Sony Sureshot was a good camera. If my daughter hadn’t dropped it I’d still be using that one.

I am in the market to buy a new one. I want a really good one. BUT I am torn & don't want to spend a FORTUNE but I don't want to be cheap either. I have a Kodak & it just isnt getting it anymore!

THese are my *wants* heh

Canon Rebel (any of them)
Nikon D90
and I am still looking at other SLRs I want a high megapixel & am really interested in these new SLRs, BIG TIME! But, they are HIGH!

Big wishes but hubby agrees we need a great new camera. AND just use the Kodak for "everyday" type use.

my laptop came with HP photosmart essential. I know that at work I use something by Adobe. My camera isn't a Kodak, but I didn't load the disks that came with the camera on either computer. Maybe there is something out there that will just get your pictures onto the computer into "Pictures" folder.
