Your Pentax K7 lacks firewire (1394) connectivity, so a connection to a fireware jack will not be possible without purchasing an inexpensive Firewire to USB adapter . From the manual:
USB 2.0 hi-speed, AV out, HDMI out, DC in, cable switch, 3.5mm stereo microphone.
Video out: HD (1080i30, 720p30, 480p30), NTSC, PAL
Printer interfaces: n/a
The I/O (input /output) panel on a Pentax K7 camera.
You can connect a USB cable from the "PC/AV" on the camera to your computer's USB port with an appropriate cable to transfer image files for editing, etc. Additionally, you can send video directly to a TV with an appropriate cable via the camera's HDMI jack.
make sure camera is in the play mode and powered on. If this does not work, sub out the cable to make sure it is not the cable. The last thing is to reinstall the usb ports - this is almost never necessary - but to do this start/control panel/system/device mgr, find usb root hub and right click uninstall to each. reboot and they will reinstall automatically.

Your camera takes an SD card so all you need is a SD card reader. You take the SD card out of the camera and stick it into the card reader and that goes into your USB on your computer.
I believe ritz camera sells them for around 15 dollars. You can get them at ANY place that sells electronics. Such as Best buy, Ritz camera, penn camera, staples, walmart, target, etc.
You really dont need the USB cable considering SLR have no built in memory.
A card reader would serve you better.
******* As far as your camera not working when hooked up to your USB, some cameras require you to install there software. This means its not a "Mass Storage" device. Think of it like an Ipod, it hooks into the USB, but you need itunes to see it.
or you can try this website for software http://www.pentax.jp/english/support/digital/photo3_win.html This is for the PENTAX PHOTO Browser 3 and PENTAX PHOTO Laboratory 3
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
My Optio 33LF gave the same "card not formatted" message and then shut down completely at a family party. I took it to the Pentax Canada depot which is nearby and the technician said the main circuit board was gone. A C$130 part + labour estimate = time for a new camera !
