Battery shows empty with new batteries
Take a look in your camera's menus. There should be a place where you can select rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries. That setting enables or disables the battery charging circuit. If you are using rechargeable batteries, the camera must be set accordingly so that the battery charger will turn on. If you are using
Alkaline batteries such as Duracell or other types of non-rechargeable batteries the charger must be disabled. If you do not set that parameter correctly, you will get the symptoms you describe.

My pentax optio m20 wont
Take out the batteries and clean contacts with alcohol and a Q-tip the long ones like a doctor uses are better. If the batteries are more
than two years old I would replace them. I take it that this camera
probably uses AA. Reg. Alkaline batteries would be alright just to
try it with if you get it working then I would put a set of lithium batteries in it as these last far longer.You can also buy rechargeable AA batteries. If it has a lithium L-Ion rechargeable battery pack and it
is several years old you may want to buy a new one for it. There is
several reasonable sellers on Ebay with the proper battery for your camera. If this don't solve your problem I would say the camera is done. In my experience these new cameras just don't last as long as the old manual film cameras.

Water in camera
Remove the batteries and let it dry for good. To be sure all the damp on electronics evaporated. Put the camera on warm place (not to hot). You need to open all doors (SD card, battery etc..) even back cover to let the damp go out. Blowing dry air may accelerate the drying process. Install batteries when you sure all the water trapped inside has evaporated completely.
How to i get pictures from my camera to my 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
