My Pentax Optio 450 retains only one photo on the memory card
My Pentax Optio 450 only shows the last photo taken, apparently losing the ones taken before. Says ''Camera cannot display this image.'' Naturally, it started this behavior during a wedding. Boohoo. Any thoughts? Tried turning it off and on, popping out and putting back in the memory card and the battery.
Testimonial: "Duh. Great idea! The pictures were indeed stored on the memory card. THANKS!!"

It sounds like the memory card got corrupted. If the memory card shows no files, there are no files. I'm sorry, but they're gone. Are you SURE the pictures aren't on your computer? Most cameras delete the pictures AFTER it copies them to your computer.
Copy your photos to the SD card in the camera. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/OptioS5z_web.pdf p. 136
Transfer all photos to your computer from your SD card, and then put the card back into your camera. Try looking through your manual to see if there are any other settings that are required in order to save photos to the memory card.
Try taking the card out of the camera and clicking the side of the card
- there may be a little gap on one side of the card or a small button
that you can slide up and down and then reinsert your card.
pg 17 at the bottom shows how to unlock the card, but it is simple, take out the memory card and on the side of it will be a little tab which can slide, slide it off the lock position and it should work
Usually this is not a problem and you will find a menu option to do this. But, in some cameras the solution is to download them the same way as the memory card by plugging in the camera to the computer. Remove the memory card, and then plug in the camera.
