Having problems with your Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera ?

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!!!!


Answers :

There's quite a simple fix to this.

Disconnect the camera and turn it on. Press Menu and move to the the little 'tool icon' tab. Under 'USB connection', change the setting from PC to Pictbridge. Press OK. Connect your Optio to your PC and that should work.
