Having problems with your Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera ?
PC won't pick up camera connection
\015 I am trying to get my pictures from my camera onto the computer via a USB cable. Last few times I did this I just unplugged the USB cable after uploading without disconnecting it first via "safely remove hardware" before physically unpluggin it. Now when I plug the camera in, it doesn't pick up that there is a PC attached.... what do I do??\015
You need to reinstall the driver that will make your computer to see your camera. The driver for the hardware must have been corrupted, re-installing this driver will solve the problem. if you have a cd application that came along with your camera, it will be better if you use that to repair the damage driver by installing the software unto your system. Thanks

I have a GE 8.0 megapixel camera E840s. Have always been able to download pictures onto computer with no problems. Now after connecting to computer, my camera says "connecting" but doesn't do anything. Then I get a message about options and if I pick "import photos" it will then begin to import ALL photos which are already on the computer rather than the most current. We deleted many photos to make room, thinking this would help. What's my problem? Thanks.

I dropped the camera this morning & now it wont turn on at all. I am just sick. Help! It fell on the top edge by the zoom button. When I picked it up, the side door (usb input etc.) was open. I tried to charge up the battery & that didnt work either. I called Lumix/Panasonic & they are helpless. They told me that I can send the camera in to be replaced for 175.00. I may as well just get a new camera.
