Question about Pentax Optio T10 Digital Camera

USB cable problem when transferring

Have an Optio T10 and lately when I plug it into USB ports of multiple laptops it seems to not only not identify the camera but also "takes out" the laptop's USB ports. Why is it disabling laptop USB, thus rendering the ability to transfer pics by USB cable useless?

Could be a bent pin maybe?
I would just go out and buy a card reader so that you can read the memory card without the cord. and then you wont have to worry about it.
the card reader cost about 20 a new cord would be more.
Hope that helps,
Caleb

Pentax optio w80 driver


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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Device detector screen doesn't come om when I hook up camera to PC - camera settings are correct


This can be the camera, the cable or the port (PC). Try it in another port and then if nothing a different computer. If you leave the cable plugged in then sometimes the port doesn't wake up and show a device detected or the cable gets yanked stepped on etc and is damaged. The camera itself can have its port fail.

The majority of the time just changing the port "fixes" this. The next usual suspect is the cable. The data cable is fairly cheap and available at most stores think walmart for cheap and camera store for expensive replacements. If the camera is the problem, and you will only know for sure after trying the ports and possibly a new cable you have a couple of options. It isn't that common but does happen.One is getting the camera replaced or repaired (check for any warranty) or just remove the memory card and use a card reader on your desktop or laptop to transfer. This is actually quite a bit faster than the cable anyway.

The ports on the pc can go out but that can be a driver needing to be re-installed or an actual hardware issue. If the port works with other usb devices such as a printer etc then it isn't the port. You can buy a usb port card for under $20 if it is.

My cam can not be recognized by my laptop... its the first time this happens... i can not transfer my pics to my laptop


Hi,
Try camera in another USB port of laptop and also check it with another USB cable, if still problem not solved then plug camera in any other computer to make sure that it is problem of camera.
If camera still wont work in other computer then its USB port got defective, please use memory card reader to transfer pictures in computer, take out memory card from camera, put it in memory card reader and plug it in USB port of computer.
Thanks.

USB Device Not Recognized


Hi!

Try to plug it into other USB ports. If it still does not get detected, try to get a spare USB cable. Most of the time, its the bad cable which is causing such error.

No source identified, no transfer


First. reboot the computer. If you leave your computer on all the time, an occasional reboot will often clear up an unresponsive program and "sharpen the teeth" so-to-speak. If you've done this, try going directly from USB cable to the camera. If it is still unresponsive, try plugging into a DIFFERENT USB port on the computer. If you've done all of this with the same cable, try using that cable and camera on a different computer. If it is unresponsive there, you may suspect the cable as being bad. Try a different cable. If you're still having issues, suspect that the USB port in the camera has gone bad and have a reputable repair shop take a look at it.

Pentax Optio T10 turning off immediately


My optio t10 did basically the same thing...turned on, lens goes out, then automatically shut off. I took the advice of a solution listed here for another problem...hit the camera. For whatever reason it worked.

USB Connection problem Optio S4


have you turned the camera ON after connecting the cables? Next, does this USB port on the computer work with other USB devices such as memory sticks? My O555 has a USB socket that feels really "fragile" and I fear I will damage the socket with improper insertion (alignment seems touchy). I bought an external USB card reader and am really happy with that. You don't use up battery power transferring your files. Much better solution, IMO.

No usb port found


If you can't find such on your machine, then it's either disabled, the BIOS is out of date, the OS doesn't support your USB (Examples abound!) or other. I cut my time loss by adding an USB PCI card.
