Question about Pentax Optio W30 Digital Camera

1 Answer

After scrubbing my hard drive, and re-imaging my computer, I can't find the folders, or pics on my sd card from my optio W30. I can put the sd card back into the camera and veiw pictures, but for some reason I can't access them from my computer, I've tried the sd reader on my laptop, and an external card reader. All my drivers are up to date... is there more software that I need??

The computer has lost track of the format of the card. The easiest thing would be to download the photos to another device and see whether the computer will format and see the card afterwards. Then reload the photos back to the camera or e-mail to your computer.

SOURCE: Bug in the Optio S40?

I've never had my S40 "wipe" any of my SD cards, but I have had it not recognize the card as readable when I first insert it. Every time that has happened, reinserting the card once or twice has solved the problem.

SOURCE: SD memory prohibits functioning of Pentax E30

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,

SOURCE: I deleted a folder on the memory card Optio S50

The only thing I can think of is that the new memory card is locked. On the side of the SD card is a write protect switch that when engaged will prevent you from writing to the card. On the side of the SD card is a little tab that can slide up or down. Change positions and try again.

SOURCE: Pentax Optio MX4 won't read my new SDHC 4gb

Does the camera work with any other card? Was the card formatted in the camera? Some cards from some manufacturers just don't work in some cameras.

Copy your photos to the SD card in the camera. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/OptioS5z_web.pdf p. 136
Transfer all photos to your computer from your SD card, and then put the card back into your camera. Try looking through your manual to see if there are any other settings that are required in order to save photos to the memory card.

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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

This should do it for you: Insert the SD card into your laptop or computer. In the SD card go to "New Folder" name that folder "DCIM" in the "DCIM" folder create a new folder. This one you will name "101KC190" (I'm pretty sure you have the Kodak Easyshare 190, correct?) Now, transfer all of your pictures into "101KC190." Insert the SD into your camera and it should work. email me if you need to kylejwoody@hotmail.com

Pretty cool that the newer computers are coming with an SD card slot. However the computer looks at this as an external hard drive and I don't think the pictures are just going to automatically pop up on the screen. You will need to go find the "drive" click on the folder and open, once you have the pictures open you can select all copy and then create a folder on your computer hard drive and paste the pictures in that. Once the pictures have transferred do a safe eject of the SD "drive" and remove the SD card. Don't forget to do a format to the card once back into the camera.

Unable to upload the pics. while trying to copy, the message says, all the pics are stored in hidden files. what to do?


Hi, you unhide the hidden files in the Computer. Please open the folder containing images of the Digital Camera and click on Tools>Folder Options> View tab> Show Hidden files, folders and Drives option. This will show the hidden files in the Memory Card of the Digital Camera.

There should be an internal transfer from memory to SD card on most camera but not all look under the main menu for the memory card where it tells you to format card and create folders it there should be a COPY option.

How do I transfer pictures from my camera to the computer?


images are stored on standard Type I CompactFlash cards. Consider the included 8 MB card a starter capacity, since its 12-picture limit means you'll need to return to your computer often to transfer images and free up the card for more pictures. A 128 MB card is a great size for this camera, storing around 200 images. To transfer images to your computer, simply attach the included USB cable between your PC and your camera. Your computer should automatically recognize your camera and let you move the pictures to your hard drive. Simply click on my computer click on new drive shown in this folder, select all the pictures, copy them and past to your desired location,
you can also copy picture by using card reader, put the SD card in card reader and follow the same procedure
Good luck, do rate the solution if helped

Software Installation


Pentax camera creates an own folder at each inserted SD card. So, try to find your image and video files in the folder named 100PENTX. For example, my camera saves the shot images into folder: SD card:\DCIM\100PENTX.
