Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera

USB transfer problem--*IST D

I am running Windows ME on my computer. When I connected my *ist d to the computer for the first time, Windows found the camera and installed a USB mass storage device driver. Although the driver was installed I can't upload the photos. Windows System shows the driver installed, but the storage device doesn't show up as new drive when I go to "MY Computer" or in Windows explorer. I've installed and reinstalled the driver several times, but no luck. The little icon on the bottom right side of the screen shows the device installed, and when I try to shut off the cmera before stopping it, I get a nasty little message saying I shouldn't do that. So windows does recognize the camera, but doesn't let me see or upload the photos. Can some one out there help or offer a suggestion?

I solved that problem with a strange method. I have a zip drive and an external hard drive which I only turn on once or twice a month. I found that if I boot-up with these two devices turned on, the camera is recognized as another drive when I turn it on, and I can upload the photos. If I boot-up with these two devices not turned on, no drive letter is assigned to the camera, and I can't upload my photos.

Not sure if it's relevent, but every time I connect my camera to my PC (running XP Pro), the camera says "Battery Deleted" and shuts down. The drive shows for a second or two then disappears from windows. Only occurs when the battery pack is attached to the camera. Without the battery pack it's fine.

I would dig around in http://www.usbman.com to see if any patches for Win ME. Used that OS for about 6 months before dumping it. Not my favorite to say the least. Then again that was a long time ago. Would help to know who's USB chip is in your box. Actually cannot recommend any Win products but XP. Have used Win 3.1,95,98,98se,me,xp home.

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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Bad USB conection?


If your camera's driver is not installed, it will not work.
Make sure you go to the manufactures site, and download the correct driver there.
However, if your driver IS installed, then yes, your USB cord might have gotten bad.


Thank you.

Hi there,

If you want to download the pictures on your camera, try plugging it into the usb port of your computer using the usb cable. Then turn on the camera and make sure it is set to REVIEW MODE. Usually, this opens the sofware. It not, then, on your computer, click Start button >> All Programs >> Accessories and choose Scanners and Cameras. It will open up the window which will show the pictures and from there, follow the steps to download them.


Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FIxYa.

I am unable to get pictures to download to pc do I want to format the disk?


NO! Formatting the disk will remove all of the pictures from it. First make sure that you can view your pictures using the camera. If you can, then the problem lies between the camera and computer. I have found the best method of transferring is to connect to the computer with the USB lead, and drag and drop the files from the camera to a folder in the computer.

PC won't pick up camera connection


You need to reinstall the driver that will make your computer to see your camera. The driver for the hardware must have been corrupted, re-installing this driver will solve the problem. if you have a cd application that came along with your camera, it will be better if you use that to repair the damage driver by installing the software unto your system. Thanks

Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.

D40 Zoom and Camedia Software


Camedia software leaves a lot to be desired. I prefer to use a USB media reader and Google's excellent Picasa software to manage my photos.

My Fujifilm digital camera is connected to my computer, but the removable disk does not appear when I open "My Computer" in Windows. I have a FinePix camera and have installed the software.


If the removable disk does not appear when you open "My Computer" in Windows, it is possible that the USB drivers are not installed correctly. Update to the latest version of FinePix Viewer (including the USB drivers). To update FinePix Viewer, you must have the software from the CD-ROM bundled with the product (Utilities for FinePix) already installed. As an alternative method to updating the software, you can also reinstall the USB drivers. The USB drivers can be reinstalled by installing the software from the CD-ROM again. If the removable disk is still not displayed after the above measures have been taken, check the following: Windows system checks 1. You should be using Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 or Windows XP. 2. The Windows XP USB drivers are supported as standard system drivers but are only compatible with Software for FinePix versions 2.0 or later. If you are using an earlier version of the CD-ROM, an update to FinePix Viewer is required. 3. The software cannot be installed properly from "Scanners and Cameras" in the Control Panel. Digital camera checks 1. Check that the digital camera can play back images on its LCD monitor. 2. On digital cameras with the PC Camera function, select "DSC" as the USB setting. (Refer to the Owner's Manual for your camera for information on specifying the camera settings.)
