The other camera could be recording pictures with a smaller size and/or higher data compression.

You're getting 250 pictures on a 1GB card. That's about 4MB per picture, which is a bit on the large side but not completely out of line.

Try another card in your camera but check the inside the card holder that you have not got a damaged connector in there. and format the card with the camera and not on pc. Hope that help you.

SOURCE: Largest capacity SD card for Pentax Optio S5N

The maximum supported size is most likely 2GB SD Card. Cards with 4GB and more are following a new (incompatible) standard called SDHC (SD High Capacity), SDHC cards work only in devices specifically supporting SDHC. The Optio S5N uses the old SD standard where 2GB are the maximum size.

I know that usually, you should format the card for the camera that your going to use. Try formating it in the camera and see if that works. Let me know if I can do anything else for you,

Need disc for pentax optio 6mp camera


You don't need any software.


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, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

What is max size of sd card?


SD cards top out at 2GB. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work.

I have to say that you are probably using the wrong SD card. Or the memory card is to big and the camera cant handle all that memory space. I recomend that you try a 512mb San Disk SD Card. Dont mistake this for any card. Dont use a San Disk SDHC card. Do this and make sure your batteries are charged and you should of solved your problem. Good-Luck.

After i turn on my Optio E10, it shuts off right away even after i put in new batteries.


Sounds like a memory card problem. Try using A 512mb San Disk SD Card. Not a San Disk SDHC card. see if that doesn;t help you out. Good-Luck

I have a pentax Optio E10 camera and put a 4gb sdhc memory card in but it doesnt respond when I switch it on - does this mean it is not compatible or is there a way of sorting the problem


The manual specifies SD cards up to 1GB. Cards bigger than 2GB are actually SDHC (SD High Capacity) cards and will not work in SD devices. 2GB cards may work; try at your risk.
