Please read your post.

I'm guessing you mean that noise the mic picks up when the cameras focus or zoom.

The fix is very well known and here it is -> Use an external mic.

It's the same fix we've used for a very very long time.

"external mic"

I'm a nOOb to this camera, I bought it on 5/23/11 I always google before I ask a Q.... I am guessing that this MIC plugs into the power or the usb port (DC IN)?

Did a search on Ebay also, nothing come up.

Answer
Focus Noise (video)

Probably not.
If it were possible, Kodak would have removed it.

Almost all digital cameras have problems with audio noise from the focus motor and/or zoom motor.

Some camera makers lower the sensitivity of the microphone(s) during focus and zoom, others turn off the microphone during those times.
That leads to more problems and complaints.

Microphone

Your camera (Kodak V530) does not have a connection for an external microphone.
Very few digital cameras have that ability.

There is nothing you can do to correct the problem you are experiencing.
