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.

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!!!!
