Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

SOURCE: can a pentax optio S5i support a 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.
