Having problems with your Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera ?

I have windows Vista, Icannot install the pentax software. How do I down load pictures from camera


Answers :

Don't connect the camera to the 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have Canon Rebel XTI. When I connected it to a USB port, the AutoPlay in Windows Vista came up and asked what I wanted to do with the pictures. I always selected copy to a specific folder. Now, however, Vista tries to load a the drivers for the Canon and cannot find them. It does not look at the camera as a simple storage device now, but this is what I want.
