Question about Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera
EVERY TIME I TRY TO LOAD A PICTURE TO MY COMPUTER IT WORKS FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN MY CAMERA SPAZZES OUT ON ME AND WONT LET ME DOWNLOAD THE PICTURES...HOW COULD IT CHANGE FROM ONE WEEK TO THE NEXT???
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.

Windows XP uses its own built-in drivers for digital cameras like your Optio 50. There is not driver for you to download.
With XP you should be able to simply open up the "My Computer" icon on your desktop.
Under "My Computer" you should see a "Removable Disk".
Double Click on it, and then your should see "DCIM", double click on that and then you will see "100PENTX".
Double click on "100PENTX" and you will see all your pictures.
You can then copy those pictures to anywhere on your computer.
If this does not work for you, you can always use a card reader to download your pictures. Many later model computers have built-in SD card readers. If your computer does not have a slot for an SD card you can purchase a card reader, usually for under $20, at most major computer/electronics equipment retailers.
