Question about Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Transferring photos I have had the camera for three months with no problem.  I have been trying now to download some short movies and they come up blank in quick time. I had no problem doing this with with my first camera.   Now I can't transfer regular still photos from the camera to my mac.  I don't think I have changed any settings, either on the camera or the mac and am quite frustrated. The operating manual has been no help.   Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.

Re: Transferring photos

I think this has to do with the video format and/or version of Quicktime being used in the camera vs the PC.
I have no clue on a mac but I experienced similar on certain Win-dohs OS's some time ago.
I'm not sure it's a defect so much as a compatibility issue...
Try playing the videos on a Win-dohs machine with late OS.

From your description, it seems something wrong with the connection between your card and camera.
As a suggest that, you can use a memory card reader to reduce the consumption of your camera accessories. If there is something wrong with your memory card, you can replace it easily and with low cost, but if there is something wrong with camera accessories, that's more trouble.

Close the camera using the 'Off' button. Dissconnect it from the computer. When the camera is turned off, connect it back to the computer, wait for the computer to respond and then you'll have the pictures available. Remember - the camera should be turned off.
