Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera

You will need to archive or save your images either directly on your computer or to another form of removable storage media. The nice part about this is that you have many options to choose from - some relatively inexpensive. You can transfer your images to your computer's hard drive, but we don't recommend this as the best long term solution. (Pictures can quickly accumulate and take up a lot of storage space which can slow down the speed and operation of your computer. Also, if your computer crashes, and you do not have a backup disk, you could loose your pictures.) A better solution is to archive and index your images through one of the following removable storage options: * CD-R / CD-RW Drives (CD-RW drives allow you to write new data to this type of disk by overwriting old data.). This is the most common type of long-term storage, since recordable CD drives are common and the disks are inexpensive. Each disk also holds up to 650-700MB worth of pictures and other files. * External hard drive * Zip or Jaz Drives * DVD recorders Some internet photo web sites will allow you to download and store your images with them. The idea is that you will order prints from them when you decide you are ready for them. Prices and fees may apply depending on the site. There is no single storage medium that suits every need and budget. The key is to select the one that works best for you.
