If your batteries are new, within their first two charges, do not put to much stock in the performance you are getting. When I got my *ist D the first set of batteries I used was an old set of 2000mah Digipowers, and I was shocked. I got nearly 400 photos, lots of them with flash, and lots and lots of review on the LCD. I recently purchased some Kodak 2100mah batteries and for the first two charges could not get more than 30 pictures in either the camera or flash. They are now on the third charge and seem to be lasting much longer. I have read it takes about 5 charges for them to reach their peak performance. Also, if your batteries have been discharged by sitting in the cupboard, I understand they have to go through this conditioning again. If your batteries are older and have been continually used I might worry.

You should be able to get the software from the manufacturers website. Most manufacturers keep the software up there for free all you have to do is download. Otherwise I personally prefer to use a USB card reader. All you have to do is unplug the memory card from the camera and insert it into the reader. The computer then sees the card as a jump drive. The card reader is much easier in my mind because you don't have to learn the less than fabulous software most manufacturers use for their cameras.

There's quite a simple fix to this.
Disconnect the camera and turn it on. Press Menu and move to the the little 'tool icon' tab. Under 'USB connection', change the setting from PC to Pictbridge. Press OK. Connect your Optio to your PC and that should work.
