'USB Over Current Notice' unable now to download photos to computer

'USB OVER CURRENT NOTICE" Re: Pentax Optio S50 Camera: Error notice 'USB Over Current Notice' ...'The USB device is currently drawing too much power. The port it is attached to will be deactivated.' Camera had worked fine for over a year, then suddenly, apparently for no logical reason, I got this notice. Unable to download pics. Have tried moving it to other USB ports, with the same result. Also, the error notice did not come up when the camera's USB cable was attached to the computer port - it only came up when the other end was attached to the camera (which was not even turned on).

This is usually because the USB cable is shorting. Looks like an issue with the internals of the camera

Hi, I found this on the Pentax website.

Where can i download a driver for optio s50 please


You don't need a driver.


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.

Have windows vista on new computer, no longer have CD ROm for camera. I am unable to access the software when I connect it through USB port???


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.

Pentax Optio s50 screen problem


If no error code on the LCD screen, then you have either very weak batteries or a bad CCD problem/malfunction. One way to test the batteries is plug in your AC/DC source and try to turn on your camera again and try taking some pictures. Also make sure you have a memory card present in the camera. If it works, then it was the batteries. If it still doesn't work, then its the CCD. Time for repair.

ASAP HELP!!


No setting neeed. You just have to plug in the cord from camera to computer then turn the camera on and it should automatically start up transferring with ACDSee program. The camera has to be on to download photos.
Alternatively you can plug in camera, turn it on then open my computer, select drive the camera is plugged into then copy the files over to my documents.

Uploading pictures from Optio S50 to computer


You should probably copy them from the card to your computer before opening them. That might help.
