Just did a search and found the threads from last year which refers to a firmware upgrade for the kodak. Must have been posted during my 'gap year' from the forum. I've been having problems with the batteries. i.e. difficult to switch on, have to remove batteries and have found that running my tongue across the contacts (assuming better connection) seems to help (hope it doesn't give me a terminal illness). Can then take a couple of snaps before it shuts down by itself. repeat procedure etc. So it doesn't appear that the batteries are dead flat, but maybe not enough charge to keep it's pecker up. It's always on the docking station so should be getting charged. Does this sound like the symptoms that the firmware upgrade will fix? Has anyone else had similar problems?

I am at present in 'heated' discussions with Kodak/Link Network, regarding the same camera.There as been a revised Firmware and software programme issued to this camera, since the Internet fiasco. I complained about battery weakness, downloading from the docking station, and general dissatisfaction of the cameras functioning. Kodak have supplied me with three sets of refurbished batteries. They have had the camera at their Belgium repair centre, but problems are still evident. The camera had the latest Firmware installed by Kodak, then I found that the software would not function correctly.I have recently spent about 50 minutes with their technical department, doing various checks and tests.After that,via Kodak technical I have spent 3x1 hour downloading new software on dial-up, which have all resulted in error problems. Still trying to obtain total satisfaction from Kodak/Link Network.

Spuds..
This doesn't sound encouraging.
I downloaded DX3700FW.EXE which is only 280kb.
What did you downloaded that took 3 hours?
I haven't had any problems with the docking station or picture transfer.
I downloaded CCS14.EXE on 16.02.02 and EASYSHARE V2.01 on 24.01.03.
i have wondered whether its the batteries that are at fault or the battery connection, thinking in terms of hardware rather than software.
I think if I had gone through what you have gone through I may have binned it by now.

although i did stop using the kodak supplied batteries basically because they were useless.
i purchased high quality rechargeables and never looked back.

the camera and kit is the best £100 i think i've ever spent on a gadget, definitely encourages me to buy kodak in the future.
