Question about Pentax Optio W10 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Optio W10 usb cable does nothing

I have the usb set to PC I have installed ACDSee v6 which came with the camera. Camera is new. I plug the USB lead in. My computer does not detect anything. ACDSee does not detect anything. ACDSee icon in the task bar should be green when there is a camera detetected but it's green all the time whether the camera is plugged in or not. If I choose tools ACDSee Device Detector then only a baloon pops up saying click here to learn how to use this, and if I click on it it opens my browser then fails to load anything. Using Windows XP Pro. Tried the usb connection on another pc but nothing. Looks like the usb just doesn't work.

    I believe that I have the same problem. My USB cable used to work but I have not used it in a while. The one thing that is puzzling to me is that the camera will not power on when I have the cable attached. The camera powers of as soon as the battery/USB connection compartment is opened. I have tried connecting to a pictbridge compatible printer (Dell AIO 942) and get the same result. The camera will take pictures as I am able to remove the SD card and transfer those to the computer by inserting the card into the memory card reader on the dell printer. Is the supplied cable the only one that will work?

The first rule with any new didital camers is as far as I am concerned is -Leave The Disk in The Box Windos is quite capable of reading removeable meadi with out extra layers of programs. So Remove the software [Start/Comtrol Panel/Add Remove software, etc., Reboot the computer. Plug in the camera Make sure it is set to the upload function[see manual] Windows Camera/scanner wizard will come up select what you want to do[coy to folder] click OK. Do all this first If still in trouble check the cable with another, and if you can remove media card and try through yours PC or another via a card reader. You have to eliminate which is dud Camera[switchng] cable. When you have make the decision and concluded it is the camera/cable, pack it all up and take it back from the place it came from.

My computer does not detect my Pentax Optio w20 digital camera


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 ACDsee or any other photo cataloging program.

Plugging in usb lead to computer.. XP computer doesnt see camera??


Some cameras need a driver to be detected, but some need the installation CD to detect the camera. You can use a card reader to have the computer detect the pictures, and drag and drop them from the card to the computer. The card reader will be detected in My Computer as another drive, i.e. f:, g:, etc.
Good luck and hope this helps.

I cant get my pc to see my sony when I plug it in to usb what am I doing wrong???


If your computer is not recognizing this camera, then you may need some drivers to install on your computer. If any CD came with the camera, put that in your computer. If not, then go to this website and look for the drivers that match your operating system.

My computer won't recognize my camera when I try to load photos


Two Possibilities:

1) There's no driver installed, or the installation failed. ( A notification will say so when you plug it in ). Be shure the driver is setup properly.

2) The setting on the camera is set to "WebCam" and not "USB Disk"

In the settings menu, (Not the photo menu) on the camera there will be a USB Function option; this sets the camera up to behave like a cardreader and set the plugged in camera as an aditoional disk drive.
The other setting for the USB Function is "Web Cam" or "Digital Camera"; this will set the plugged in camera to behave as a USB Web Camera accessable to tv tuners or other recording or chat software.

To test, open the "My Computer" display of available hard drives, Disc Drives, Floppy Drives, and Memory Card Drives, then plug in the camera into the USB connector. A USB signal sound will alert you and a new drive should appear on the My Computer list, that's the camera.

If you don't get a new drive, then unplug the USB connector and enter the Menu on the camera, look for a USB function menu and set it to Disk drive, or whatever is not Web Cam function.

Note: This is for PC, and not Apple type computers, but I'm shure an Apple computer would be similar.

Cheers.
Richard.

Where on my computer do I plug my camera into in order to upload my pictures?


  • Normally you would connect the camera to the pc using a USB lead. To do this your camera should have a mini USB slot somewhere and you would plug the mini USB cable plug in to this, then plug the larger USB end of the cable into one of the USB ports on your PC (USB ports are usually oblong and situated on the back of the PC) , You may need to install some software supplied with the camers to do so.
