Having problems with your Pentax Optio M40 Digital Camera ?

Pentax Optio M40 is not recognized by PC

\015 Normally, when I connect my Pentax Optio M40 to my pc (via usb) the "Windows Fax / Camera" wizard would appear and I could copy my photos to the file I wanted.\015\012\015\012Last week I installed a new printer while traveling and, I'm assuming, the printer's software configured a default for acquiring the photos when the camera is connected to my PC.\015\012\015\012I have now removed the printer (because I will not be using anymore) and my PC will not recognize my Optio M40. What do I need to do?\015

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.

Windows Vista!!! When I plug in my cord from the camera (Pentax Optio S5i) to my new laptop with Windows Vista I get a message saying it can't locate Pentax driver and this isn't supported by Pentax??? or something like that.  My camera is not that old.  Is there any way I can get my camera to work with Vista?  I can't even get it to recognize the camera when plugging it into the USB port so it's not a software issue.  HELP I do not want to have to buy a new camera!!!!
