Having problems with your Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera ?

When i plug my M20 into my laptop nothing happens and i wanna put my pics on. my computer says its there but not letting me click on it :(


Answers :

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My son cleared the sd card for my dimage e323 using my laptop after down loading the pics. When I re-inserted the card in the camera it now says it needs to be formated. I have clicked "yes" and also gone to the menu and formated it, neither way will work and let me take pictures. I even tried reformating the sd card on my laptop, and reloaded all the pics back on, but nothing works. What can I do to correct this problem?

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pic


The first thing that may be complicating things is, can your laptop read SDHC cards, or just SD cards? If the laptop is asking you to format it, then probably it's working, but be really sure, before you continue.Check the co ... Digital Cameras
