Step-by-Step Needed re Download Kodak Easyshare Drivers Only HELP
 
I keep reading that I may do a "custom download" of EasyShare and get the drivers only. Will someone please provide step-by-step (DL for Dummies) instruction for me?

Also, what is it about my Kodak photos in my computer that prevents me from saving them to a CD? Is there a way to fix this? I want to manipulate the photos in PhotoShop. When I downloaded EasyShare (3.2) I was able to transfer the photos but they seem to be somehow formatted or configured in a way that is incompatible with my CD drive.

What Operating System (OS) are you using?

How do you normally transfer your photos from the camera to the computer?

Hi Ross,

I am using Windows 98. I recently purchased my camera (Kodak DX 6490) and transferred the photos using the dock hooked to my USB Port. The problem is that the Easyshare software kidnapped my internet connection and made itself the owner/administrator of my photos. All I want to do is the the photos into my computer and save them as JPEGS and be able to do whatever I have normally done with photos in the past (upload them to e-mails, e-bay, down load to CDs, edit in PhotoShop).

I cannot do any of this ... the software doesn't work at all. Ever since I downloaded this software I have had nothing but trouble and have no clue what other things have been affected (I am not that much of a computer person, but can follow directions pretty good!) So I have (hopefully) gotten rid of all remnants of Kodak EasyShare.

I have gotten another piece of advice which is to purchase a card reader. I don't know what the heck a card reader is ... yikes.

Thanks for any help you can give!
Sadie

Greetings Sadie,

Sorry to hear about your dilemma.

Truth is, Sadie, that EasyShare does not take over your system nor does it
keep you from using any of the programs on your system. Rather, I suspect
that your reference is to the program that is associated with viewing and
editing your pictures. This is an option on installation. If you want to
change the program that is designated to open a file type (image file in
this case) by your operating system, you need to associate the file type
with the program you want to use. In the future, any file you want to open
of this kind will use the program you have chosen. For example, if you want
all JPG files to be opened by Photoshop, even when reviewing on the web,
this is the program that will open that file type (JPG) and be used by your
operating system.

For most Windows programs, you can change which program starts when you open
a file by:

Clicking on My Computer or opening Windows Explorer

Choose the Folder Option from the View menu.

Click the File Types tab

In the list of file types, click the one you want to change, i.e. JPG

Click Edit.

In the Actions, click Open.

Click Edit.

In Application Used to Perform Action, enter the program you want to use to
open files that have this extension, or browse your hard drive to find the
Photoshop program, then click OK.

Note: The settings for selected file types are shown in File Type Details.

Since you have had trouble you may want to make sure you have removed all of
the installation files used by EasyShare. You can do this by first going to
the Add/Remove programs option found in the Control Panel

Click on Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove then scroll down the list to see
if there is anything related to Kodak EasyShare Software. If you find
something highlight it and choose remove. If you do not or after that
content is gone go to the following site and read the directions on how to
'clear' your system of the program. Once it is gone you can return to the
Kodak website where they have the EasyShare software download links. Choose
'Download' and when the download option appears, click Open. This will
begin the installation - do not click quickly but read each screen after
choosing it. The next screen should ask what kind of installation do want.
Choose Custom. In the Custom application you can choose only the Camera
Connection Software option. Only that portion of the software will be
installed so you can retrieve images from the camera.

Once this is complete, you can get your pictures from the camera while
reviewing and editing is done in Photoshop. Give it a try, Sadie, and let
me know if you have questions.

Talk to you soon,

Ron Baird
Eastman Kodak Company
