Computer cuts out when i connect my pentax optio e80

Take care you are to using a USB cable, with a shortage, or a defective connector on the Pentax or in the computer. Be aware if a shortage occurs on an USB port, the voltage dip, caused by the shortage can cause the computer to shut down.
Till you found what is causing the problem, I would not connect the HP, with the same cable to the same USB port.

Hi, my problem of my pentax optio e80 is that, when i'm going to have a picture the lens show CARD IS LOCKED how can i solve this problem. thank you!

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I'm looking for the pentax optio S5i usb driver for windows 7

Sorry, you won't find one for Windows 7 as the camera is discontinued and no longer supported with software updates by Pentax.

But you may be able to use the Compatibility Wizard built into Windows 7 to run the XP version of the software. If this fails then your only remaining option is to use an external memory card reader to upload images. I'd recommend that you do so anyway as it's usually much faster and gives you a genuine choice between Windows own image handling and editing package (pretty good) or genuinely superior alternative software which is often free. Picasa is one of many popular alternatives.

I hope that my reply has answered your question; if so then please take a moment to rate my answer or add a comment if you need further assistance with this problem and I'll respond when I'm next online.

Have windows vista on new computer, no longer have CD ROm for camera. I am unable to access the software when I connect it through USB port???

The camera should be detected as a drive when the camera is connected via USB. Does it? You should be able to connect and copy your photos straight out like a USB drive.

Uploading pictures from Optio S50 to computer

You should probably copy them from the card to your computer before opening them. That might help.
