Is there a version of a usb driver for the Pentax Opito33L that is compatible with Windows Vista? I don't have the original CD that came with the camera.

Thanks.

    I don't have the disk that came with the camera. i think i'll buy a card reader and that will probably be the best solution. Thanks for your help guys.

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!

I have Windows 7 and it my daughters hello kitty photo booth (digital camera kit) said that it would only support up to VISTA which I had until I upgraded.....how can I get this to work on my Windows 7?


Have you tried installing it on Win 7? Most software made for vista will run fine on Win 7. Otherwise you can try running the program in "XP Compatability Mode". You can do this by right clicking the installation file (or if installed already, the shortcut you use to open the program) and click properties. Then click the Compatability tab and check "run this program in compatability mode for:" and choose Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
Good Luck

Are there any windows 7 compatible drivers for Pentax Optio S5i?


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

I have recently purchased a Jazz Digital Camera and I am very disappointed because I am unable to download my photos because the camera is not compatable to download with windows Vista series.. Is ther any...


I have searched all over the place for an anwer to this without much luck.

My only suggestion would be to run it in compatibility mode for Windows xp and/or run the compatability wizard.

Click start> help and support > type in compatability wizard and it will bring up a list of options.

Click on compatability wizard and it will open.

Alternatively, find the file on your computer that won't load/run properly, right click and select "properties" then "compatability" tab and you can select what operating system to run it in.

Hope that is of some help to you.

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

Digital camera not recognised by windows vista


It may be that the drivers for the Camera are not compatible with Vista. Did you update the Vista drivers.

Can you not detect via USB cable?

The Optio is compatible.Vista. Just view your Compact Flash card

file and work from there. Ed

Here is the list from Pentax as to what is compatible under vista:

The best way to use is to get a free program from Adobe website or Kodak. That can transfer your pictures from your camera to your computer.

Camera doesnt work


Sorry talhahs, creative has not written Vista compatible driver software for you're PC-Cam 350 camera. Hence you're camera will not function with any version of Vista.
There are few SD readers currently that are compatible with Vista. Click on this link to see one type.

A card reader that will help you in transferring pictures from you’re camera to you’re PC while using Vista.
Win XP, unlike Vista will still run program software even if it has not passed MS's compatability.

Good Luck!
