You need to unlock the card before you can take or erase images. Most camera's, by default save images to the card only and have very limited 'on board' memory. Try using the new card (be sure to format it if the camera prompts you to) and see what happens.

Why can't I download pictures to computer?


You can do that by two methods.

1. Memory Media
The E40 accepts SD and SDHC memory cards and has approximately 10MB of internal storage.

Insert the memory into your laptop SD card slot.
You may not need a SD Card carrier as the SD type for both Camera and laptop is same.

2. Connectivity
There is a USB/AV connector on the side of the camera as well as a dock connector on the bottom of the camera.

It sounds like the memory card got corrupted. If the memory card shows no files, there are no files. I'm sorry, but they're gone. Are you SURE the pictures aren't on your computer? Most cameras delete the pictures AFTER it copies them to your computer.

I have a pentax optio E40 camera. The screen reads card locked and I cant get it open


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.
If this doesn't do it, try a different card.

Lost installation cd


You can easily download pics using a separate card reader. You don't need the camera or the missing cd. 69ce415.jpg

Camera will not connect


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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.

GET OUT OFF GREEN MODE


geeze! after reading all the little advice i could find.... i came across a picture of my camera - what it looked like brand new. and i realized that all the time i had been confused about the constant advice: "press the green button to get out of green mode". confused because my camera had no "green button"..... i didn't realize until i saw the picture of what my camera looked like new, that infact my camera did have a freakin green button! it had just been worn off over time!! and infact the button that is the "trash/delete" button..... was actually colored GREEN when i first got it!! good lord!! i hope there's someone out there that has had their pentax so long that the color-coded colored buttons have worn off..........  i feel kinda dumb, seeing as how the "green button was right in front of me the WHOLE time!!

My Pentax Optio E40 Camera


The built-in memory only has about 8 pictures or so. You have to buy a memory card to insert in the same section where the batteries are inserted.
