unless Kodak came out with a Win 7 driver for that device, I don't have any other ideas. Maybe a Vista driver would work, if available. Have you tried to contact Kodak customer support directly? I mean, even if this thing is out-of-warranty, they might be able to help you with this problem. Sometimes drivers for devices in the same "family" work, even if not designed for that specific device.
already tried that kodak website. no help. apparently they stopped supporting a perfectly good camera so i would have to go out and buy another one. i will try and call them and ask about your "family" idea, but i have a feeling it will be an exercise in patience at best. the only other thing i can think of is to use a win xp VM, but that seems like a bigger pain in the ass then it should be.
