Don't connect 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.

I lost the software of the sony dsc-w35 camera. so now icannot take the photos from the camera to the computer. so what should i do? can i download the software free?


sony drivers should be included in XP, Vista, and 7 operating systems.
You can download the sony software, but in my experience with Sony, the drivers should be on the computer as a standard feature.

Try to connect the camera to the computer and see if it downloads the pictures without installing additional software.

Good luck on this.

We just got a pentax camera through a points program. It is a Pentax Optio E90 Red. The serial number is 1188104. THe software included does not have a program to load the disk onto our computer so we can...


Pros never use the camera for downloading. They always use a separate card reader....then you don't need a software disc. This one is only $13 at Walmart. b0d8508.jpg

I have a windows vista laptop and have lost my software cd for my camera - ...pentax optio s5i... . Where can i download the software, for vista online?


You don't need any software.

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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

You do not need drivers or software. Vista will load in driver. If your pictures are not sharp try another lens, this may solve the problem. You can aklso go to Pentax website to download all software and firmware updates.
