pbnik welcome to the forums.

Not sure what to tell you, but it should just be a matter of connecting the camera to the computer and Windows detecting it. I have two older Kodak cameras (a CX4230 and a DX6340) that are quite a bit older than yours and both of the work just fine with Windows 7 x64 RC1. All I did was plug them in and Windows detected and installed its native drivers for them.

So when you plug in your camera to your PC, nothing happens,? is that correct.

kodak

already tried the drivers from kodak and contacted them and they have no drivers for win 7 available yet for any of the kodak products they said. the new software for vista with the updated drivers is what i have installed. still no luck.. just keeps telling me driver failed contact manufacturer of product. thanks for the idea though.

No problem, you're welcome.

Maybe if you install in compatibility mode for Vista, it will not say that the driver is incompatible. Like how we used to have to do to get GTA IV to install.

That could be the problem right there. You shouldn't need the Kodak bloatware for any of their cameras to work with any version of Windows (well maybe Win 98), it should just be a matter of plugging it in and Windows detecting and installing a generic driver to read the camera. This is from the CX4230 I mentioned previously,



and that is on Win 7 x64.

Did you try just plugging the camera in before installing the Kodak software?
