You can get the manual for your cameras at the website I posted below. It is the same as the original that came with your camera, it's free of charge and you can print or save it, it will answer your questions. Good luck.

I have a pentax optio s10,lost ma ual but can,t figure out how to transfer pics from camera memory to sd card in camera, HELP!!!


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). 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 management program such as Picasa.
Organize edit and share your photos

You may view the manual at
Pentax Optio Optio S10 Operating Manual

"Copying files" begins on page 164.

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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

My Pentax Optio S5z does not store images to SD


Copy your photos to the SD card in the camera. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/OptioS5z_web.pdf p. 136
Transfer all photos to your computer from your SD card, and then put the card back into your camera. Try looking through your manual to see if there are any other settings that are required in order to save photos to the memory card.

I am the owner of a Pentax Optio and have just purchased a computer with Vista package. I can't transfer my 'photos onto the computer. Can you help?


The Best thing you could do is buy an SD Card reader, the SD card plugs into the card and the card (via USB) plugs directly into the computer.

The photos then come up as a USB drive.

Here is a link on Ebay to an SD Card reader http://cgi.ebay.com.au/USB-2-0-CARD-READER-WRITER-USB2-0-HUB-COMBO-SD-CF_W0QQitemZ320297230536QQihZ011QQcategoryZ43450QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

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.
