Having problems with your Pentax Optio S4i Digital Camera ?

Windows xp does not recognize optio s 4i

\015 I'm trying to reinstall pentax optio s4i but I get a message saying an installation is already in progress, it isn't. This has been going on for months! I can't use the camera and download pictures. If it does install then when I go to my computer and removable disk to check like the manual says it is't there. There is an icon on the taks bar but no menu and going into ACDsee there is no removable disk folder showing Pentax.\015\012\015\012When I try to repair I get the same message that another installation is in prgress. I have also gotten an error message "failed reg opening error code 3"\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 ACDSee or any other photo cataloging program.

Software Installation I recently went out and bought a Pentax Optio SV. It has 5.0 megapixels, and 4.0x zoom. Camera works fine, all that jazz, BUT its the connectivity issue. Pentax has a software that comes along with it that is obviously outdated by a longshot, and when i go to install this ACDSee for Pentax, I try to install but it just says I need Windows Media Player 7.1 or higher to continue, but i have windows media 10.0.
