Trouble importing camera photos using Kodak Easyshare

April 29, 2013 at 10:01:22
Specs: Windows 7
I'm not quite sure why but I am no longer able to import photos from my Kodak camera using Kodak Easyshare. I'm using the doc as usual and do seem to import. When I get the point where I am asked for tag name, I click to import and get this error message "The following error occurred while importing 100.2682.JPG The system cannot find the file specified. What do you want to do. Try again, Skip the File, Skip all Files with errors"
I have tried to skip the file but each one seems to be a problem...Help !!!

The memory card containing the photos could be corrupted and in need of replacement, or there could be a communication problem between the camera and your computer.

You might have better luck if you bought a card reader instead of using proprietary software to transfer your pics. With a card reader you don't need to connect your camera to the computer at all, so that eliminates any communication problems between the two.

You just connect the card reader to your computer, remove memory card from camera and insert it in to the correct slot on the card reader.

If still you get an error, the pics are most likely corrupted, which is caused by the memory card becoming faulty and no longer usable. They don't last indefinitely & can fail without any warning, but of course I hope that isn't the case and that using a card reader is successful.

Does the camera icon appear as a drive in "Computer"?

If so, can you find the photos in a folder (usually named DCIM). They can usually just be copy pasted into your "Pictures" folder - I rarely bother with provided software.

If you can copy them over then it proves it is a problem with the camera software.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I'm going with the corrupted file idea. I would probably try recovering the files off the camera using a program like Recuva(free). Scan for photos and point it to scan the camera card, it should be shown in "Computer" as mentioned. If you can get the pictures back (may/may not be viewable) you'll have to try them. Then reformat the card. If you have issues formatting the card as well, it may be time to replace the card.
