    Not to be rude but can you either post some feedback or rate my answer As I gave an accurate answer to my knowledge as you have the link to downloading the software and if that is not enough then it will be down to the manufacturer ( pentax ) to post you / send you a new disc that contains the installation software / drivers etc

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

You don't need any software.

Can a pentax optio S5i support a 8GB memory card? Do I need to download a driver to support an 8GB memory card/


No the Pentax Optio S5i does not support an 8gb memory card.

8gb would be an SDHD card, the S5i came out before SDHD so it does not support them.

Standard Secure Digital Cards come up to 4GB in size so you could use one of these. The highest standard card I have is 2gb and that is fine in mine.

My S5i locks up if you put an SDHD card in.

The only firmware update that Pentax supply does not effect this, SDHD needs different hardware.

Transfering photos from pentax optio s5i camera to p.c.


You should be able to get the software from the manufacturers website. Most manufacturers keep the software up there for free all you have to do is download. Otherwise I personally prefer to use a USB card reader. All you have to do is unplug the memory card from the camera and insert it into the reader. The computer then sees the card as a jump drive. The card reader is much easier in my mind because you don't have to learn the less than fabulous software most manufacturers use for their cameras.
