Question about Pentax K10D Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
I gave a gift to a friend who is unable to transfer the picts from the camera to the computer. The friend has many serious health issues and I'm trying to get the info in writing so that I can send clear instructions by email. If you could help I'd appreciate it or let me know where to go to get the information. Thank you!
I have working in a camera shop for a while and We are taught that there are two ways to extract informatiom from that camera, If you are going to tranfer using the USB cord, please use the software that came with the camera.
or for about $20 you can buy a card reader that you can use with out the camera and upload directly to your computer.
and a third option is to use a printing center to upload and save to a cd/ this is the best option because you can load it into you computer and still have the Disk as a back up in case of a computer crash , or load on multiple computers. and that cost about 5-10 dollars

Make sure the software that came with the camera is NOT installed. Assuming it is with a Windows computer with ME/2000/XP. Plug the camera in, ensure it is on and set to upload and Windows will take it from there. Windows Scanner/Camera wizard will come up and ask what you want to do with the images- simply select to download to folder- from there it can be allowed to simply follow its head and make its own folder usually taking the date as a title - -or make a dedicated folder or subjects names the whole operation is controllable by the user providing that take their time. It is essential the Software disk is left in the box - it only confuses things - computer and user.
