Why can't I download pictures to computer?

You can do that by two methods.

1. Memory Media
The E40 accepts SD and SDHC memory cards and has approximately 10MB of internal storage.

Insert the memory into your laptop SD card slot.
You may not need a SD Card carrier as the SD type for both Camera and laptop is same.

2. Connectivity
There is a USB/AV connector on the side of the camera as well as a dock connector on the bottom of the camera.

SDHC 16 GB memory card compatible with Pentax Optio 450

No, you cannot use SDHC cards with the 450. You can only use MMC and SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a pentax optio E40. The screen reads card lock and i cannot get it unlocked

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
If this doesn't do it, try another card.
If that doesn't do it, append a comment to this thread and we can go on from there.

Is there a firmware upgrade available to allow SDHC cards to be used in the Optio 50?

No. There are hardware difference between the SD and SDHC specs that cannot be overcome by firmware changes. While SD cards will work in SDHC devices, there is nothing that can be done to make SDHC cards work in SD devices.

I know that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Pentax Optio 60

Largest card for the Optio 60 is 2GB. The camera is not able to take 4GB and larger SDHC type cards. If I answered the question to your satisfaction, don't forget to rate it. Thanks

Sdhc memorty card in a pentax optio e10 camera

The E10 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.
