Question about Pentax Optio S4i Digital Camera
I installed ACDC for Pentax to my wife's PC; when I turn on the camera, I don't get the dialog box with "copy images to hard drive & launch ACDC" message.
When I manually open ACDC I don't see any way to communicate with the camera!
My wife's PC runs under Windows 98; when I put the CD in the d drive, the system seemed to go through the setup process OK.
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your wife's computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to a 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.

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:

The camera should be detected as a drive when the camera is connected via USB. Does it? You should be able to connect and copy your photos straight out like a USB drive.
