What Operating System Do You Have
 
This poll question may seem like the one on the hardware section, but this is slightly different. Even if you have a regular PC, you may be running Linux, BSD or just Dos on it. So this question pertains to operating environment.

Windows XP
 
Dear Jose:

Please help!!! I just purchased a Viper that runs on Windows XP. Unfortunately, I found out that before you purchase software, they have to be XP compatible.

I have a digital camera that was given to me as a gift way before I purchased this computer. It is a Kodak DC220 digital that came with its own photo program by Kodak. The Kodak program for the camera does not comply with Windows XP commands...in other words, I believe it is not compatible. I would like to download/upload the pictures that I have on the compact flash cards to my hard drive using my Kodak camera and its program. Is there any way that I can go around the Windows XP and start using my Kodak digital camera with it's program again? Thanx for your help!

Hola, Ana,

I'm not quite sure what you mean when you write: "The Kodak program for the camera does not comply with Windows XP commands..."

Try this and let me know how it works:

While on East Harlem.com on

either the "post reply," or "Post new thread" page - two boxes, or sections from where you will type your comments, find the "Attached File:" area . . .click on "browse," find the "Desktop"
title. . . once there locate Kodak program files . . .

If you have not saved your pictures onto your computer's hard drive or floppy disk, you must have your camera connected with the computer in order to access your photos. You may want to create a "New Folder" on your desktop and for instance - name it "Kodak pictures," and save your selections of photographs in this folder.
Let me know . . .

Kodak photo program
 
Hello Jose and thanks for your prompt response. What I meant was that the program that the camera came with, called Picture Easy Transfer program, my new computer won't "take", or, my new computer that runs on Windows XP, won't interact with the PICTURE EASY KODAK PROGRAM. But, I'll try what you suggestion. Should I continue to have problems, I'll keep in touch. Thanks again.

Hi Ana,
Windows XP comes with a program which is "suppose" to be able to grab photos off the camera. Under "Accessories" there is a Scanner and Camera wizard. Click on that and see if XP will at least see your camera. If it can, then it will grab the photo's off of your camera and probably put them in the My Pictures folder. If that is all you wish to do, then you are done (don't forget to delete the pictures from your camera to free up disk space on it).

If you wished to do more with the program that came with the camera, then you may wish to try installing the software (I know you probably did this already) then run the Program Compatability Wizard (its under Start/Help and Support. Look for the Wizard and then go through it. You can also right click on the icon for your program, goto Properties and then the compatibility tab. Choose from there. Let me know if it works. It doesn't always work. For instance, my Corel Draw Version 7, just does not work with XP. So I purchase Adobe PhotoShop Elements 2.0. I still miss Corel.

Software for XP
 
Hi Jose:

Thanks a bunch for the information. I will certainly try that! I'll keep you posted. Again, thanx.

Windows XP
 
Hey Jose!

Part One of your instructions WORKED!! Thanx a bunch! I still haven't tried the other half of your instructions but the most important instructions did work. I had completely forgotten that you have to prepare the computer and tell it what you are installing for it to operate. Again, thanks so much.

Ana.

I am glad to hear it. Snap away with that camera. In fact today will be a good day to take pictures. Snow makes for such lovely pictures.

Jose 03-05-2003 03:48 PM

Anyone else have pics of East Harlem during a snowstorm?

Hi Neo,
Thanks for registering. I have played with Mandrake and like it. But have concentrated on Redhat for server experiments. Right now I am running Fedora. And a friend of mine suggested Debian, but I need to buy a Debian book to read as I go along.

Besides that I have a Win95, Win98, WinMe, WinXP Home and one WinXP Pro. I have one Linux box, but hope to have a second one within the month. I guess you have built you own machine. Me too, which is why I hope to build another one within 30 days and make my current XP Home box a linux one (thereby getting my second linux box). Hey, it gives me something to do.

Am currently reading up on backing up with linux. If you do backups, please tell me what you use.

Jose 01-09-2004 10:34 PM

Oh, I forgot to ask, do you work in computing in East Harlem?

neo 01-11-2004 02:04 PM

well I don't do much back-up my only on my cdr for my own personal stuff,

I work in queens where I have a p2p network nothing big with about 60-70 computers some running xp pro. 2000 and 98 and some novell client version to log into the main sites internet at our corporate headquarters.

I am still trying to learn Linux I d/l many of the O/S but just run out of time to play with them.
