Having problems with your Pentax Optio A30 Digital Camera ?

Problems uploading video on Pentax Optio A30.

\015 I have a Pentax Optio A30, and i was wondering if anyone could help me. Whenever i try to run a video on my computer it's only a white screen, and if i try to save it, it comes back with a 'file is a broken or not in a usable format'. If anyone could help me i'd really appreciate it! Thanks.\015

Answers :

Go to divx.com and download the free divx codec. I have the Optio A30 and it is a very good camera, with surprisingly good video. Get the codec and you should then be able to both view it on your PC and edit it. Good luck!
If you dont have a codex on your computer (if you're using windows media player) you wont be able to play your videos because this is a requirement for most of the newer pentax.

I have a pentax optio A30 with 2.0 gb card. I took pictures last night of my grandsons birthday and was viewing them in the camera as I took them. Tonight I went to put them on my computer and i get a message on my camera that says " card not formatted" and I cannot find my pictures in the camera, and I cannot upload them at all - I was just looking at them last night. I have not done anything with my camera. HELP!!! How could I have lost my grandson's pictures when they were all there last nig


I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machine ... Pentax Digital Cameras
