How do I connect my K7 to a 1394 socket


Your Pentax K7 lacks firewire (1394) connectivity, so a connection to a fireware jack will not be possible without purchasing an inexpensive Firewire to USB adapter . From the manual:

Available Ports:

  • USB 2.0 hi-speed, AV out, HDMI out, DC in, cable switch, 3.5mm stereo microphone.
  • Video out: HD (1080i30, 720p30, 480p30), NTSC, PAL
  • Printer interfaces: n/a

The I/O (input /output) panel on a Pentax K7 camera.

You can connect a USB cable from the "PC/AV" on the camera to your computer's USB port with an appropriate cable to transfer image files for editing, etc. Additionally, you can send video directly to a TV with an appropriate cable via the camera's HDMI jack.

I hope this helps!

When the Pentax USB cable is connected to the computer USB outlet pictures do not appear on computer

make sure camera is in the play mode and powered on. If this does not work, sub out the cable to make sure it is not the cable. The last thing is to reinstall the usb ports - this is almost never necessary - but to do this start/control panel/system/device mgr, find usb root hub and right click uninstall to each. reboot and they will reinstall automatically.

good luck

Bad USB conection?

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.

My computer doesn't recognize my new cord for my camera

Try to check if the camera software and driver is properly installed in your computer.

Make sure that your camera is compatible with your computer operating system.

Are you sure you purchased a genuine Samsung USB cord? Because it would be much advisable to use Samsung USB cable.

Try to go to and you may purchase the cable there.

USB connection problem?

The Best solution is to get an SD card reader. Then you take the SD memory card out of the camer, put the Sd card into the reader and plug directy into a USB port.  They are very cheap to buy and quite handy.

Fine pix s6500 fd camera

first thing i would do would be to make sure you plug the cable first into the usb port with the camera off then turn on the camera, see if it is recognized by the computer. If not the next step is to check your usb driver to make sure it is working. Try some other usb device. If it is recognized then i would make sure you have seated the memory card properly in the camera as well as the cable. I know that sounds dumb but that little usb cable to the camera has to be well seated. You may have to update your driver for the usb port.

New computer does not recognize pentax 33l

Optio 33L and Vista

Plug camera into USB port using the cable supplied, and switch the camera on. Computer will display the "found new hardware" sign, and ask you to insert the disk that came with the 33L into the disk drive. That done, the drivers will be installed in the usual manner. AT LEAST, THAT'S HOW I DID IT - AND IT WORKS!

USB cable

My Optio uses a standard mini USB connector - you can buy them for a tenth of the price for example, here in Aussie I bought one for $2 at a local computer mart

Broken connector cable for Pentax Optio 450

Yes. The cables are sold too. I got a deal by buying a dock from and it was cheaper than just the cable. So, go shopping.
