Can you confirm that you have installed the Kodak Easyshare software on your computer?

According to the specs for your camera, if I am reading them correctly, it uses a SD card for image storage.

 

The simplest way to get images from the card into the computer is to remove the card from the camera and plug it into the computer, either directly using the SD card slot fitted on a lot of laptops and some desktops, or by means of a USB connected card reader into which you plug the card.

 

I am getting into slightly murky waters here, because I have never used Vista. I know XP did not natively support SD cards over, I think, 4Gb capacity but there was an add-on from MS. And I know that Win 7 fully supports SD cards, so I suspect that Vista does as well.

 

Once you have placed your SD card in the computer slot, or in the card reader and connected the USB cable, the only software you need is Windows Explorer. Card readers, if you need one, are cheap and readily available. The image below is of the one I use regularly, bought from my local supermarket for £UK 6 ($US 10 ?). The computer merely sees it as just another drive, exactly the same way it treats a memory stick.

 

We have here three different Canons and a Nikon DSLR, and the software for all of them is . . . not very good (politeness is encouraged on BC !)

This camera came with a CD to install the firmware.

 

If you no longer have the CD, you can download the firmware at Kodak.

 

Once you have the software installed you can transfer the pictures with the use of a USB data cable.

 

You can find the instruction here.

My vista system is supposed to recognize my camera plugged into USB port as an external drive,but dosen't. So I plug the SD card into one of my many printer ports & use the printer/fax/copier/photo printer's software to manage pictures.

Where are you looking for the camera, in Computer?

 

Do you have the Kodak Easy Share firmware installed?
