Pentax Optio 33L on Vista

Hi, could anybody help me please?

I've got an Optio 33L which I cannot get my new computer to find - the setup CD does not work and it will not recognise it as a removable drive like my old computer would. I don't know if this is a Vista problem?

Thanks in advance

    Same problem here and no apparent solution. It downloads the supposed new driver but then isn't clear what to instal and then gets confused with the epson scanner software.

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!

Sounds like you may need to go online to Pentax site and see if they have drivers for Vista.

I NEED TO DOWNLOAD DRIVERS FOR A PENTAX OPTIO 33L SO IT WILL WORK WITH WINDOWS 7 ON MY NEW COMPUTER. I CAN NOT LOCATE A FREE DOWNLOAD. THIS IS A GOOD CAMERA BUT IT IS NOT COMPATABLE WITH WINDOWS 7.


Consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Windows vista not compatible with pentax optio 33l


If you're using an sd card or most other standard memory cards you can buy a card reader very cheaply and plug it into the usb of your computer, your computer may even have a reader built in

I have lost my cd for my optio s5i pentax camera and have a new laptop how can I get another cd or download software so I can transfer photos onto my laptop

Lost Cd


Actually, if you're using XP you should not need the disc at all to shoot & download images. If you're looking for software so you can crop & that sort of thing, I recommend googles Picasa program, its free. To download images without the disc simply connect the camera like you have in the past and XP will find the device & walk you thru downloading images, usually. If not, click on "my computer" and you should find your camera/device listed there. Personally, I use a card reader and take my memory card out and download the images using the reader.
