    I have successfully installed the new Easyshare software, the camera CX6230 is detected by the Device Manager, I connect the camera using a usb port, I hear a sound like it connecting but it doesn't go any further. I checked the synchronize and transfer under tools in Easyshare and it says "No supported device connected" What am I missing?

    Stupid question perhaps but have you switched the camera on?

    How about uninstalling the Kodacrap software then just pluging the camera in and let windows regognize it in Explorer/My Computer

    then you could try any one of a half dozen better programs than Kodak supplies

    Thanks a bunch. I followed your suggestion, unloaded the Kodacrap software, plugged in the camera and then tried Adobe Photoshop Album Starter 3.2. It worked like a charm. Unbelievable!!

    good to hear... with most cameras you don't need to install the included software.. there is much better free software available

    have a peek at the sticky thread at the top of this forum
