Question about Pentax Optio S50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Uploading pictures from Optio S50 to computer

When my computer reads the card, the thumbnails show up.  However, when I try to double click on an image, I get the message "Drawing Failed".  When I try to open it in a Photo shop, I also get an error, saying file truncated.  Why is this, and is there any way to salvage what I have already taken?

You should probably copy them from the card to your computer before opening them. That might help.

As I connect the camera to the computer, the recent pictures I to


From the question, I'm going to assume we're dealing with some kind of digital camera despite the fact that you posted the question in a film camera thread.

It seems as if the computer operating system or whatever program you're using is displaying cached thumbnails. For example, if you have a file named DSC_0003.JPG, the computer is showing you the thumbnail from the last file named DSC_0003.JPG it's seen. If there's a "Refresh" item in the menu (possibly in the View menu), try it and see if everything refreshes.

If that's not the problem, could you specify the make and model camera, whether you're connecting the camera to the computer or putting the card into a card reader, the computer operating system and version, and what program you're using to view your pictures.

Where can i download a driver for optio s50 please


You don't need a driver.


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.

That sounds like your computer is running out of system memory. Instead of crashing, today's computers simply use the hard disk drive (HDD) as memory, when memory runs low, which often will cause the computer to seem very slow and when trying to run a huge memory 'hog' like Photoshop CS2 may eventually cause the computer to lock up (crash). Try increasing your RAM by purchasing more. If money is an issue (these days isn't it an issue for everyone?) you may find a bargain shopping on e-Bay or other re-seller. I bought the extra memory in my computer at about 25% of what it would have cost me in the store. I have 6GB of memory, and can have as many applications open as I like, with no resulting lag. It's great.

Need a driver for my pentax optio s45


Windows XP uses its own built-in drivers for digital cameras like your Optio 50. There is not driver for you to download.

With XP you should be able to simply open up the "My Computer" icon on your desktop.
Under "My Computer" you should see a "Removable Disk".
Double Click on it, and then your should see "DCIM", double click on that and then you will see "100PENTX".
Double click on "100PENTX" and you will see all your pictures.
You can then copy those pictures to anywhere on your computer.

If this does not work for you, you can always use a card reader to download your pictures. Many later model computers have built-in SD card readers. If your computer does not have a slot for an SD card you can purchase a card reader, usually for under $20, at most major computer/electronics equipment retailers.
