Photo recovery 12/9

It sounds like the memory card got corrupted. If the memory card shows no files, there are no files. I'm sorry, but they're gone. Are you SURE the pictures aren't on your computer? Most cameras delete the pictures AFTER it copies them to your computer.

No. The S6 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work with devices not designed to use them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Can i put date on pictures

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

My laptop does not recognizes my camera and have no CD to the cam

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.

I have a Pentax OPTIO

Does a different card work in the camera?
Can you read the card on your computer with a card reader?

and...check the little slider thingy on the side of the SD card, flick it up, try it, flick it down...try again.
check the SD slot on the camera, anything stuck in there? lint? dust? sand?
Blow it out with canned air.

Eliminate the card as a problem...hope it's the card then worry about the camera.

Good luck

I can't get the photos

If the settings on the camera are correct, try installing the driver from Pentax (fill out the form here: http://www.pentaximaging.com/support/manuals-and-literature/) your computer should recognize it then.

If all else fails, you can always use an SD card reader to download the pictures directly from the card
