Hello there, My NEW desktop PC works with Vista Ultimate. I also have a Pentax Optio A10 and the problem is that when I connect the Pentax with the PC, to save my photos, nothing happens. When I used my previous PC with Windows XP Pro, while I was connecting the Pentax, in a second I had my photos ahead. Now, the problem is a driver maybe? I tried to find a driver but I didn't make it. Thank you very much in advance, Xanthos.

The A10 accepts SD cards, which max out at 2Gb. The 4Gb card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card, not an SD card, and thus will not work in devices designed for SD cards. Compatibility goes only one way--SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.
I took advice in PC World. The camera isn't configured for Vista but a way around the problem is as follows:
Download photos directly from camera to printer then take them off using a memory stick. Then transfer them on to the computer.
Thanks for your interest
It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly. If it is sticking, it will buzz. If it fails to open all the way, it will turn itself back off. This is what it sounds like you are saying. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona. I don't know what they charge for a lens assembly, but the minimum charge for this camera seems to be about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

do you have the ability to attempt transfering the pictures onto another computer
maybe its just that computer
what type of card reader are you using
is it factory installed or aftermarket
try installing a different card and see it you can transfer pictures from your camera to the computer then
maybe its a file type(format)problem
theres what i have good luck

You need a new LCD display. I can replace the screen for $40, or you can buy the parts on eBay for about $25 and do it yourself if you are very handy, and very skilled with small delicate parts.You could send it to Pentax in Arizona, but they charge about $90 for an LCD replacement.If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.
