Question about Aqua Pentax Optio S12 Digital Camera

1 Answer

ACDsee software Hi, Your advice on upgrading Windows doesn't actually help me - i need help installing the camera software! I've just purchased a Pentax Optio S12 as a second camera (my first camera is a Pentax Optio S40). I'm trying to install the ACDsee software that came with the camera. I am familiar with this software as the 1st camera uses it (I already have a version on my computer) When I try to install it, I get an error message saying "Epson Scan cannot be started - do you want to open the troubleshooting assistant" If I say yes, the troubleshooting assistant opens (but there doesn't seem to be anything helpful there) along with the Copy Utility window. This Copy Utility only seems to allow you to print from my Epson printer/scanner. I've tried it and it works fine - but that's all it does, I can't get past this to actually INSTALL the camera software. With the old camera, all I had to do was install the software, and then plug the camera in via the camera/USB AV cable- and the photos would upload automatically. The new camera isn't doing anything when I plug it in. (PS I even though the old ACDsee software on my computer might be somehow causing problems - so I tried renaming the Epson folder containing the software to something else so the computer couldn't see it - didn't help either.) I am actually very computer literate and this is driving me crazy. it shouldn't be this difficult! Can you please help me get past this annoying Copy Utility program (which doesn't seem to do anything other than print from my scanner), I just need to install the ACDsee software! thankyou Diane

    Hi; my advice wasn't to upgrade windows. My advice was to download the latest ACDsee software. My question about which operating system you had was to see if you were using Vista or not which could have been a culprit but since you are not, that rules that out. However, some windows updates may interfere with some software. That's why I suggested going to ACDsee's website and see if there is a known issue with up to date windows XP or not by downloading either a patch or the latest version of ACDsee.

    Also, when you plug in your new camera, you said it isn't doing anything....does it appear in my computer as a removable drive where you could manually go in and look at your pictures?

I want to install microsoft word program

In order to install the Microsoft Word program, you will have needed to purchase the Microsoft Office Suite. The Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Upgrade is just the operating system's upgrade. The Microsoft Office Suite contains Word, Outlook, Excel, Onenote, Powerpoint and a few other database softwares. You can purchase Microsoft Office from Amazon (the cheapest price I've found) for $119. The URL is:

Optio W10 usb cable does nothing

The first rule with any new didital camers is as far as I am concerned is -Leave The Disk in The Box Windos is quite capable of reading removeable meadi with out extra layers of programs. So Remove the software [Start/Comtrol Panel/Add Remove software, etc., Reboot the computer. Plug in the camera Make sure it is set to the upload function[see manual] Windows Camera/scanner wizard will come up select what you want to do[coy to folder] click OK. Do all this first If still in trouble check the cable with another, and if you can remove media card and try through yours PC or another via a card reader. You have to eliminate which is dud Camera[switchng] cable. When you have make the decision and concluded it is the camera/cable, pack it all up and take it back from the place it came from.
