Question

Kodak Z915 digital camera - software for Windows 7?

by tenaciousrecruiter / March 15, 2013 7:20 AM PDT

I bought the Kodak Z915 a few years ago and it suits my needs. However, my older computer crashed and I now have a Lenovo laptop with Windows 7. I tried my Z915 software but it says needs to be updated, but Kodak website says they've stopped making it available as of Sept. 2012.

I have all the notes on using a memory card, but I'd prefer to get a copy of the actual software. Does anyone have a copy of Z915 software that will work with Windows 7 that they can make a copy of and send my way? Or make any other suggestions?

Thanks,
JoAnne

Since Kodak is bankrupt and have no plans to update their software, it is time to move on to something that is supported.

Plan on loading your photos to your computer with a card reader on your computer.
You can buy card readers for about $10.

If your main interest is to organize your pictures, look at the free program (Picasa) from Google.

If your main interest is to edit your pictures, look at the free program Irfanview.

If you don't mind spending a few dollars (about $70). look at Adobe Photoshop Elements.
It is a very powerful program that
can be used to organize and edit your pictures.

Hi JoAnne,
I googled "Kodak Z915 Win7 Driver" and got quite a few links. Most, sadly, lead to the "No longer available" page. However, I did come across this one

http://www.orgsoftcom.org/fileeasyshare-z915.htm

which seems to have links to drivers for various versions of the Z915. You might want to follow them up, some state compatibility with Win7, some not. Hopefully your version will have a driver. By way of experiment, I did download the first in the list and it seemed to come down OK.

There are other links from the Google search but you'll have to follow them up yourself.

Good luck!

But I own a z990 and never used the software on the CD. What I did was get the card out when I needed to transfer.

What good is this CD?
