This thread was originally entitled 'Kodak DSU/DCS power nightmare', but I'll change the subject as needed, to reflect the latest development (below). For future reference, I've decided to document the entire process of configuring a fully working DCS system. The ultimate goal is to capture photos with the DCS and transfer files from the DSU to a PC. Feel free to post comments and tips as we proceed. I have a feeling I'll need all the help I can get.
It's been a couple of years since I last tried my Kodak DCS. Back then I was able to power up the Digital Storage Unit (DSU) and take a few photos. Regrettably, I was unable to connect the DSU to my computer to retrieve any files (SCSI issues, described in another thread).

The ScsiAccess.exe process is part of SCSI Access for ProShow Gold of Eastman Kodak Company. Here are further details of ScsiAccess.exe, and whether it might be a virus or spyware.

  • Vista, Kodak 8650, and 1480 slim SCSI help? May 1, 2008 Hi, I have a new laptop with Vista on it and with my old laptop (now dead) I used my Adaptec 1480 slimSCSI and printed in Raster mode.

This time, I was determined to make everything work, but I soon ran into other issues. The three batteries that came with my kit (model VB30H, 12V-2300 mAH) have seen better days. They're able to power up the DSU for a few minutes, but will not let me take any photos (the camera is powered by the DSU only). The DSU will simply display a 'LOW BATT' error. Apparently you can still get these (or similar) batteries, but I'd prefer to make everything work with what I've got.
And, lucky me, I have the original DSU power adapter. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. The two lights (BATT CHG and POWER) don't even light up, and the adapter makes a pulsating, high-pitched noise (in lack of a better description). Whatever it is, it's not working.
DevicesAnd the part that goes into the DSU isn't exactly a standard plug (at least not in my neighborhood):
So instead of messing with my SCSI setup (which I'm sure will also be a nightmare) I'm now stuck with other parts that won't cooperate. The original DCS has got to be one of the most masochistic cameras ever made. What were they thinking!?
I'll bring everything to a smarter friend which hopefully may be able to help. Meanwhile - any suggestions?
