Question about Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera
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 any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

No the Pentax Optio S5i does not support an 8gb memory card.
8gb would be an SDHD card, the S5i came out before SDHD so it does not support them.
Standard Secure Digital Cards come up to 4GB in size so you could use one of these. The highest standard card I have is 2gb and that is fine in mine.
My S5i locks up if you put an SDHD card in.
The only firmware update that Pentax supply does not effect this, SDHD needs different hardware.
