Question about Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Retrieving photos on PC

Every time I try to open the drive to view photos via computer I get the message "go to control panel and install and configure system components". I have installed from CD. Could this be that my Quick Time is a 5.0 and not a 6.0?

I don't think so.
Are you opening the drive that says digital camera or are you opening the drive that shows a little icon above it - meaning it has content? If you are using the digital camera drive , open it up and see how it is configured. Is your camera chosen? Are the other options correct? Mine does not have the option for any of my cameras, and my photos download to my F drive. If your problem is not solved here, try this:

I would try going to pentax and looking for an updated driver for your camera and op system and doing a clean download(nothing running-not even virus control)and install.

First however, you will need to uninstall and go to tools>internet options>delete cookies

when you have finished a clean download and install, restart your computer and try to download photos. Also try a different USB socket.

Good luck to you.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Downloading photos message says format this memory card. Will that erase the photos on the card?


Hi,

Yes, If you are getting the message then it will erase everything you have stored/saved on the memory card.

There are few possible reasons for this message.
1. Your memory card is full and does not has enough space to store new photos.
2. Your memory card is not fully detected or recognized hence it is asking you to format the card before downloading

There is simple solution to diagnose and find out the problem for both the reasons.

Click Start
Click on My Computer ( or Computer )
You should be able to find the Memory card drive and you should be able to open it
If you are not able to open and view the contents then your PC has not completely recognised the card.
If you are able to view the contents, your memory card is full and does not has space for more photos to store.

Hope this is helpful

I have flash drive intergral 4Gb usb 2.0 i can't retreive photos


Try to scan the flash drive with an anti-virus software and see if it will open. I will recommend you use Avira anti virus. But if it does not open on your computer system, maybe you should try it on two or more other computers using a different operating system from yours.

If it does not work, then the pictures are either infected or the flash drive needs to be reformatted as it may be infected as well.

Computer won't read camera or card


Do you have a suitable photographic program to view your photos installed such as Photoshop,Picture viewer or something? Have you installed any software onto your pc which was supplied with the camera? There is probablyl a compatible program supplied in this. Do not reformat unless you are prepared to lose your photos! Get a spare memory card to experiment with-one with no important photos on it! Make sure you install any camera software onto your pc.

I have the following message and I understand the problem may be with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 The appplication has failed to start because connAPI.DLL was not found. Re-install may fix the problem


Hi there.

Do one of the following solutions: Solution 1: Remove the NOKIAManager.mox file.

  1. Exit Photoshop Elements.
  2. Open the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\moxplugins folder.
  3. Move the NOKIAManager.mox file to the Recycle Bin, or another location such as your desktop.
  4. Restart your computer.
Note: The NOKIAManager.mox plug-in file is required for Adobe Photo Downloader to download photos from a Nokia mobile phone. If you use a Nokia mobile phone, use Solution 2. If you later decide to use a Nokia mobile phone, either move the NOKIAManager.mox file back to the original location or reinstall Photoshop Elements.
Solution 2: Install or reinstall the Nokia PC Suite software.

Note: Only use this solution if you connect a Nokia mobile phone to your computer.

In order to communicate with a Nokia mobile phone, your computer must have the Nokia PC Suite software installed. Install the software to allow Adobe Photo Downloader to communicate with the phone and download photos from it. If you have previously installed Nokia PC Suite but are still getting this error message, uninstall and reinstall the software or upgrade to a newer version. For more information about Nokia PC Suite, contact Nokia or visit the Nokia web site.

Solution 3: Disable Adobe Photo Downloader.

  1. Open the Organizer in Photoshop Elements.
  2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Camera or Card Reader.
  3. Disable the Auto Launch Adobe Photo Downloader On Device Connect option.
  4. Click OK.
Note: This solution will prevent Adobe Photo Downloader from starting when Windows starts, and it will not appear automatically when you plug in a camera, card reader, flash memory drive, or other memory device. When you plug in one of these devices, and in order to download photos into the Organizer, you will need to start Photoshop Elements and choose File > Get Photos or Videos > From Camera or Card Reader.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Do you have a photo program installed? You should be able to see you photos just by clicking on the drive that the camera is connected to. You can change what you see under the view menu in the toolbar. You did install the camera software, correct?

Transfer photos to laptop


You need to install itunes on your laptop so your iphone can sync with itunes and your computer.. this is used to tranfer music to your iphone, transfer photo's and video etc and also to check for new firmware versions/back up your phone.

You can however take photo's from your iphone without itunes if you connect your phone via usb and choose open folder to view files when the dialog pops up after you plug it in.. this has very limited use however you really need to install itunes. Itunes is a free download
