Question about Pentax Optio 30 Digital Camera
I've been to other forums and found a similar problem where a bubble pops up saying the device is not recognized; the solution was to unplug the computer for 20 mins. I tried this for my problem and it didn't solve it. Basically, I plug in my camera via USB 2.0 cord and turn it on but there's no sign my computer has any idea it's there - no *belunk* noise, no "Removable Drive F:" in My Computer, NOTHING. *sigh* I've reinstalled the software and drivers from the CD, installed latest driver from Nikon's website, confirmed on the camera that it's got the latest driver, I tried Adding New Hardware.. NOTHING. In Device Manager, under "Other Devices" is a "RAID Controller" located in PCI slot 9, with no drivers installed. This may just be there because of my attempts to install new hardware, though. The only thing I've done recently is kill a nasty virus using other programs and some regediting. I'm pretty sure I didn't delete any registry files that would cause something like this but I'm no expert either. Please help me if you can. Thank you. -Perry U.
I'm definately no guru, but I have been having these same problems with my Panasonic and my MP3 player. I know what the problem is, but am still working on solving it. I downloaded the newest version of Windows Media Player 11 and that is when all of it occurred. They have sent out new updates to correct the problem, but it was too late. I have corrected the problem with my MP3, but still trying to uninstall the driver to my camera, so I can reinstall it.

I've just went thru the same situation. I've contacted canon, and if you plug the camera into another machine and get the same issue it's the camera. Contact tech support, and they will issue a repair for the camera. If you have WinXP as your OS, it should recongnize the camera without drivers. Give that a try.

Hi well nice going till now no, i dont think when killing a virus effects a registery file but it depends on wht program was it and if you let it kill it with somewhat file/s i belive your BIOS option of "PLUG & PLAY" is off/disabeld restart press DELETE when the memory counts up look for "PLUG & PLAY" and enable it save settings! good luck

SOURCE: USB transfer problem--*IST D
I solved that problem with a strange method. I have a zip drive and an external hard drive which I only turn on once or twice a month. I found that if I boot-up with these two devices turned on, the camera is recognized as another drive when I turn it on, and I can upload the photos. If I boot-up with these two devices not turned on, no drive letter is assigned to the camera, and I can't upload my photos.

SOURCE: Connecting OPtio S4i to PC
After formatting my PC to upgrade it I've been unable to install the USB driver software to save pictures from my Tentax OPtio S4i to my PC.
My computer isn't recognising my camera when I plug it into the USB port.
When I've tried to install the Driver using the disk I got with my camera, at the stage where it asks me to MODIFY REPAIR or REMOVE, the software I get the following showing up on display boxes:

Forget all that. If all you want to do is download your pics from your camera, use a card reader to download to a folder you create on your desktop.
