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.

Try 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.

Hi Brian,
Try this, it may work.It will tell you whether or not it is the Camera or the Software.
Your camera, as far as the computer itself and Windows XP is concerned is a 'DRIVE'.
Try the following steps:
0 Go to the desktop of the computer and in a blank spot right click the mouse and using the
menu CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON THE DESKTOP. LABEL IT "EMERSON PHOTO TEST"
1 Unplug the camera from the computer
2 Un-install the software.
3 If there are no pictures in the camera. Shoot some.
4 Turn the camera OFF.
5 While the camera is OFF, connect the it to the computer using it's cable.
6 Turn the camera ON (you should hear two musical notes telling you that it is connected.
7 Set the camera to the view mode as though your were looking at pictures on the screen on the camera back
8 There should appear a box on the screen. The first item in the box should be highlighted.
It will say "Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard" Click on that.
9 Follow each step of the wizard and deposit all of the pictures into the folder " Emerson Photo Test" Don't Erase the photos from the camera if it asks you.
10 Shut off the camera and disconnect it
11 Open up the folder on the desktop. At the top of the folder on the right select files view to Thumbnails.
If your cable and camera are OK, the photos will be there.
12 To Test PhotoImpressions5, to see if it will view the photos without crashing your computer.
Reinstall it and open the folder on the desktop.
One additional thing. If your Windows XP is not fully up to date, you should download The Service Packs and install them until you get to Service Pack 3.
To check which service pack you have now, if any, go to My Computer" and view "System Information" it will tell you which Service Pack you have.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

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.

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?
