Ummmm... Are you trying to make it work under Windoze or Linux?

For Linux, here are some programs that may help:

http://www.gphoto.net/ (experimental support)
http://digikam.sourceforge.net/ (a grahical user interface for gPhoto)

For Windoze: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/servi...Software.jhtml

Have you installed gphoto2 from the website or have you installed the version that came with your distro?

I'd advise installing gphoto2 as it supports more cameras. Also, I think you need to update your libusb file to get the usb working correctly - there's a link on the website to get the rpm.

BTW, I've no experience with the digikam program but I installed GTKam from my distro discs as the GUI and I haven't had any problems.....

Try reading the docs for gPhoto2... Don't expect gPhoto2 to jump out and bite you in the face as soon you plug in the camera... This ain't Windoze, and the support for your model is experimental, so you can expect it to end up as a puke in your face. You probably need to tell gPhoto that your camera is plugged in and ready to go... Give it a slight nudge...

Good luck!
