Question about Pentax Optio S4i Digital Camera
I'm trying to reinstall pentax optio s4i but I get a message saying an installation is already in progress, it isn't. This has been going on for months! I can't use the camera and download pictures. If it does install then when I go to my computer and removable disk to check like the manual says it is't there. There is an icon on the taks bar but no menu and going into ACDsee there is no removable disk folder showing Pentax.
When I try to repair I get the same message that another installation is in prgress. I have also gotten an error message "failed reg opening error code 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 ACDSee or any other photo cataloging program.

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:

If you're using an sd card or most other standard memory cards you can buy a card reader very cheaply and plug it into the usb of your computer, your computer may even have a reader built in
