If I have too many (I am not sure what the max is), then the system quits reading the camera, and the camera displays says, "Disconnected."

I just got a second hand bought Kodak EasyShare C913 camera. After I got it I took only 7 pictures, after that it wouldn't let me take any others because it would say 'internal memory is full.'

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and 'Nikon transfer' package from the disk that came with the box. I am using windows xp. Why does my computer not read the camera? When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!
