I've got a sprocket rocket, but haven't used it for a while. But I do have a user manual somewhere, maybe that would be helpful?

Basically, when you load film in the camera, do you advance to the numbers or the number than the dot between for each exposure? 1 . 3 . 5 . 7

Example:

Advance to 1 3 5 7 ... Fourth exposure would be 7

Or advance to 1 . 3 . 5 . 7 ... Fourth exposure would be the dot between 3 and 5.

And, what is the second hole on the left of the exposure counter for?

I think the second hole is the indicator for advancing the film. Basically, wind until the white dot appears in that second window, and you've advanced to the next frame:

Thanks. I saw that and that is why I think my camera is going back. No white dot.

Interesting, wondering how it would go missing. Does it not appear as you manually spin the little cog with the back open?

It doesn't appear. Sent it back to Amazon and have a replacement on the way.

I like what I saw with the sprockets and the wide angle view samples.

The second one arrived and advanced the film fine but there must be some uneven glass in it, but what do you expect from a plastic camera--lens is most likely plastic.

Kodak Portra 160
