    I have a Kodak EasyShare C360 camera. When I first started using this camera, all I had to do was plug it into the computer, the Camera Wizard would start up and if I cancelled out of it, the opsys assigned a drive letter and I could interact with the camera as though it were a hard drive.

    That no longer happens. The device appears in the list of devices but it no longer has a drive letter. I can work with it as a device, but would prefer the drive letter method.

    How can I get back to the drive letter approach?

    Try looking in Disk Management to see if the camera appears there. If it does, maybe you can assign a letter to it. I have done this in the past when I had about six or drives (including card readers) attached and XP quit assigning letters for some reason.

    Pertinent info
    1. Log on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
    2. Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
    3. In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears.


    Left click on the "Disk Management" line on the tree in the left panel and devices appear in the right.

    Right clicking on a device gives you option to change letter.

    Thanks for the reply. The issue is the connection between the camera and the computer, not the photo software.

    I have tried lots of photo management tools including EasyShare. It is easy to use, but does not do very much and has very limited functionality. I tried Picasa but was not impressed. At present, I am using Adobe LightRoom. It is pretty expensive ($300) but has some very nice features.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I use Disk Management quite a lot (have lots of partitions on my main computer's RAID array and do a lot of cross network stuff so many letters are actually drives on other computers or servers) and that was the first place I tried. The camera appears in the device list of file manager programs (like Windows Explorer), but does not appear in any of the device management tools within the Computer Management cascade of tools.

    Actually, my thought was that Easy share was the cause of the connection problem.
    I've uninstalled this program many times for similar problems.

    I use Photoshop for editing and Picasa for organizing, and I'm not sure what advantage Light Room has as I've never used it.

    I wouldn't be too sure, Kodak EasyShare software is responsible for most problems
