Having problems with your Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera ?

Hi, I have a Pentax Optio WPI and using ACDC viewer. After upgrading on my computer at home it now says that the memory disk is not formatted and I cannot view pictures on my computer. I try to format the disk and it tries and then says it cannot. I put the card in a reader and it will not work either. The camera, disk and reader all work on my computer at work. I contacted Pentax and they said it was not a problem with the camera. Any thoughts on how to fix this on my home computer? Please hel


Answers :

It is quite possible that your home system does have a virus in the system causing a registry issue. If possible use a good anti virus as the one at your work place and doa scan to trace out any malwares in the PC. You can also down load a registry cleaner like "log on to www.advancedsystemcare.com" and install the software to do a full registry cleaning. I am sure after this your PC must accept the memory or else ther could be an issue with the memory card drive/interface. Open system- device manager- try to reinstall the drivers for this port.
\015\012If this wont help try the system to an earlier restore point. Open control panel-backup/restore- set to earlier date.
\015\012Uninstall the camera software and reinstall, then connect and see if it detects. The memory can be formated on your work PC and then tried once again.
\015\012I hope this must solve the issue.Please give me a feedback. Good day

I have a Polaroid i533, when I plug the USB cord into my computer, connect it to the camera, turn the camera on, no mass storage device is showing. Windows XP supposed to be plug and play. I bought a card reader, and when I plug that into my USB port, and insert the 2.0 GB SD card, it shows drive F on MY COMPUTER, but says there is nothing on it, insert a disk into drive F. What the heck? How do I get this card reader to work? Thanks!

Canon A50 I am needing the software/drivers for my SanDisk reader that reads pictures from my camera disk (actually a Canon A50 digital). My original disk is for Win98 only and my Win2000XP was working with this SanDisk somehow before I had to clean my computer out. Now I'm needing the software and when I put my disk in it says that this disk won't work with my OS. Any suggestions? Kelly Hayden

I cannot upload pictures from the camera to the computer. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software (Digital camera solution disk Ver.30.2) and have tried a different USB cable but I'm getting an error message that indicates the connection to the camera is not good.

(Cannot get the device information) Took it out and put it back in serveal times. Same thing. Sent letter to Kodak. Got back sorry we no longer support Windows 98 and the web page they sent me was no help at all. I'm kind of upset. Been using it for a year on Windows 98 S.E. And now they say tough.

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera. When I put the cf card in my card reader and plug it into my computer, nothing happens. The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture
