I have a Kodak EasyShare v1003 camera and need to know how

Customer Question

I have a Kodak EasyShare v1003 camera and need to know how to download my photos into my computer. At the moment, I cannot find my instruction booklet. I have a USB cable labeled "camera" hooked up to my PC, but cannot find where I plug it into the camera.
Also, a couple of years ago, I accidentally deleted ALL the photos on my camera. Is there any way possible to retrieve them? Some were valued vacation shots of people who have since passed away and it grieves me to think that with one stroke of trying to delete ONE shot, I hit the wrong selection and they ALL went away with no way to stop them from being deleted. At the time this happened, I tried to find out if they could be retrieved and noticed that there were numerous inquiries about this same problem with this camera.
Thank you for any help you could provide. The first question is the most urgent right now as we are trying to make a wedding book of everyone's pictures for my grandson.
Thank you! - Ann Arnhart - Fort Worth, TX

In the toip right you lift up the flap and there you can connect the cable to it.
You see this here on this overview

Window should then detect it and you can view the photos.
Photos from a few years ago would be very hard to recover but we can see
Just tell me how you go with connecting it please

I have found where to connect the USB cable to the camera. Now, how do I transfer the pics to my computer?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
You will then connect the camera to the computer and then windows will ask you to view the folder.
you say yes and you then copy the photos by right clicking then and pasting these on your computers C drive eg: Documents.
Just like copying any files from your computer.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

When I plugged the USB cable to the camera, I assume it is connected to the PC. Where will Windows contact me to ask me to "view the folder"?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, you say you assume its connected to the PC....
You need to actually connect the other end to the PC's USB port

Okay, it took some doing to go through the maze of wires and pull the tower out where I could check it, but the USB IS connected to the back of the tower.
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Good
Click start, computer
Then look for the Removable drive on the left under C drive and this is the camera listed there.
Then click on it and you see the photos to copy over.
Make sure the camera is ON when doing this.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I haven't found the pics yet. I've had some difficulty w/PC in that the cursor froze up and I've had to reboot. Then visitors at the door!!! I've got camera plugged in to USB, turned on, etc. Still can't find all the pictures on the camera imported into PC.
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
where did you choose to import them to?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I didn't make a choice. I didn't see anywhere it asked me to do so. I just assumed they would go to Windows Live Photo Gallery where all my other pictures are. I don't know that I've had to make a choice before in importing from my cell phone or an incoming email from friends.

no..
You need to do the instructions I have been giving you

Well, I followed your instructions explicitly and when I clicked on the camera icon, it showed 11 pictures that are already in my computer. There are a total of 28 that I am trying to import.When you say to make sure that the camera is ON when doing this, do you mean with the telescoping lens protruding out? I have it hooked up to the USB cable and have the charging cord hooked into the electrical outlet.When I click on the camera icon, two things appear: Fixed storage and removable storage. But the only pics that come up are the ones already downloaded into my computer.
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
If you say photos on the camera then its on correctly.
If it is only showing 11 photos on it, and you are clicking on the removable storage, then these are the only photos on the camera to copy.
It will list all the photos there when you click on it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
In reference to the last paragraph of my previous message, I also have the camera turned on with the lens protruding out.
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
If you see the photos and the camera list on the computer then its on correctly.
When you click on it, all the photos that can be copied off it will be listed, its showing everything that is stored on the camera.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
On the back of the camera, the last button at the bottom is "share"--should I click this button on each of the recent pics that did not show they could be transmitted to my PC? Why would these pics be viewable if they are not "stored" and eligible to be transmitted to my PC?Do you know how I could get a replacement instruction book for the Kodak v1003?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
When you click share, check which options it gives you.
