Question about Pentax Optio SV Digital Camera

1 Answer

Software Installation I recently went out and bought a Pentax Optio SV. It has 5.0 megapixels, and 4.0x zoom. Camera works fine, all that jazz, BUT its the connectivity issue. Pentax has a software that comes along with it that is obviously outdated by a longshot, and when i go to install this ACDSee for Pentax, I try to install but it just says I need Windows Media Player 7.1 or higher to continue, but i have windows media 10.0. Then, I thought i might be tricky and just insert the SD card into my SD slot that i have built into my computer, but no, the computer wont even recognize it, oh and thats a scandisk 512 mb.

Re: Software Installation

Pentax camera creates an own folder at each inserted SD card. So, try to find your image and video files in the folder named 100PENTX. For example, my camera saves the shot images into folder: SD card:\DCIM\100PENTX.

I have a Pentax Optio 7.1 megapixel w/ 3x optical zoom and have lost the instruction manual - Is there a way to send the manual electronically so I can save it or printit out? thanks, susan


Since you declined to give us the model number of your Pentax Optio camera, the best I can do is to direct you to the manufacturer's web site at
http://www.pentaximaging.com/support/manuals-and-literature

Under "Type of Product" select "Cameras". Under "Type of Camera" select "Compact". Then under "Model Name" select the appropriate one.

Haven’t been able to find any software, but you can try the following workaround:
1. Plug in the camera to the PC and ensure it is detected by the PC.
2. Right click START button and select Explore.
3. From the left panel, scroll to the drive corresponding to your camera. (It will usually be located after the last DVD/CD ROM Drive letter.
4. Click on that drive to expand the folders in the right pane.
5. Search for the relevant pictures from a folder within that drive.
6. Copy the required pics (Hold CTRL and click on pics in case you want to select more than one pic). Then rightt click and select "COPY"
7. Once you copied all the needed pics, select a folder on your computer (or create a new one) and paste the pics into this folder.
8. You're done :)

An external memory card reader is an easy alternative way to copy files from your
camera's memory card to your computer.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camara


Are you just plugging the camera straight into the computer? Does it come with software to install? Try plugging the camera in while the computer is off and then turn the computer on with the camera plugged in. Otherwise get a SD memory card reader that the SD card can plug directly  into and this connects straight to the computer.
