SD/SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

You don't need any special software.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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Hi, Did it just start doing that? As well are there any other buttons not workings?

Pentax Optio E30... • Answered on Aug 01, 2011


My Optio E30 was not zooming because the small ribbon cable from the button strip was dirty/oxidized. All of the back panel buttons are on the same button strip. I needed to open the camera and remove the ribbon from the connector and gently clean the ribbon cable contacts with 600 grit sand paper. It now zooms perfectly.

The instructions are in the "Copying images and Sound Files" section of the manual (page 109 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one at

If it's like mine just was, it's probably stuck in green mode. If that's the case, just hold the delete button for a bit and it should go away and allow menus again.
