I've just bought 2 new P880s last week. A 2 GB memory card and additional batteries. And This week a big case and flash. Think I've spent enough quids on my photography for one week.

The photos were good, but I can always have a trip back up there and shoot them again.

I'm only trying to help. :-)

I didn't know how important the images were to you, and wanted to make sure you were aware of available options.

I don't know why the camera wouldn't show up as a removable drive. Most cameras do. It could be the Kocak software interfering (or another USB Attached device like a printer). Sometimes, firewall software can interfere, too.

Or, it could be XP itself. Some users had problems with XP recognizing USB Attached Cameras after installing Service Pack 2. The solution for them was to remove all USB Related Devices and Drivers (Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager). Then, reboot Windows and let it reinstall everything.

Personally, I use a card reader. I can't remember the last time I attached a camera directly to a computer. A Card Reader is faster, and you don't have to worry about running down the camera's battery while transferring images.

OK -- I did a bit of digging, and I am seeing other reports that your camera will not normally show up as a removable drive.

I did find someone that said they found a solution. But, the solution was for Win 2000.

You may want to give it a shot and see if the same thing works under XP.

Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services

See if you see a Service in the list called something like "Kodak Camera Connection Software". Double click on it and press the START button you'll see in the screen that comes up.

After the service is started, plug in your camera and check and see if you've got a drive letter for it under "My Computer" then. If so, try the free Digital Image Recovery program using the drive letter you see for the camera under My Computer.
