Re: computer use
You can show off your camera pictures by using the LCD monitor or by connecting your camera to a television. There are also many photo processing centers that can make traditional photo prints directly from your camera’s media card. However, to realize the full capabilities of your digital camera, a computer is recommended.

It is not only the card and computer or camera and computer that is needed. To interface anything to a computer you need a program. Most of the time called a driver. When you put a card reader to the computer, or when there is a card reader in the computer you need a driver that came with the card reader or the computer. To read from a camera, you need a driver that came with the camera. More and more, the interfacing of cameras becomes standard, so if you ever installed a camera driver it could be other cameras can communicate with your computer. But no guaranty it always work.
With the correct driver, your camera acts like an external memory to the computer and the computer can read the pictures on the memory card in the camera.
So if you use a card reader or a camera on the computer always meme sure you have installed the correct software that came with the apparatus.
see the steps : God bless you If the camera won't connect with your computer, make sure you have the
latest version of the needed software drivers (in your digital camera
package or online from the manufacturer). Check your computer for
conflicts (two devices trying to use the same port); you may need
technical assistance for this one. In some cases you can get things
working again by connecting the digital camera, then turning off the
computer and turning it back on.
How do I transfer pictures on my digital camera
to my computer?
AFTER INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE FIRST, WITHOUT THE CAMERA
BEING CONNECTED TO THE COMPUTER, DOTHE FOLLOWING: 1.
Turn on the Camera, and change it o "Playback" mode.
2. Connect the camera with computer using USB port.
3. The LCD display of the camera turns off automatically,
and the computer said " that a new hardware attached
would be detected". 4. Go to "My Computer", and you
can find a new drive saying "Removable disk". Double
click it and you can find your pictures and videos inside
the folder. Just copy them to your computer's hard disk.
This procedure is slightly different for each digital
camera model. You will need to refer to your instruction
manual (Included on the CD-Rom that came with your camera)
for exact instructions on how to properly install your
camera and download your pictures. The main thing is
to first install all of the software on the included
CD-Rom disc to your computer BEFORE CONNECTING THE DIGITAL
CAMERA TO THE COMPUTER. If you do not do this, Windows
will put in its own driver and it is virtually impossible
on some computers to get this driver out of Windows
and install the proper one. However, if you do find
yourself in this position. You can TRY the following.
First unhook the camera from the computer, go to: Start
/ Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs. Next, look for
all of the DIGITAL CAMERA software listed under the
"Installed Software List" and uninstall that software.
This is the same software you HAD installed after hooking
up the camera to the computer. Once you have uninstalled
ALL OF THE CAMERA software, reboot the computer, then
re-install the software WITHOUT the camera connected
to the computer. If this works, great! if not it is
because Windows refuses to accept the new digital camera
driver or Mass Media Driver needed and short of reinstalling
the Windows software there is very little you can to
do to make it work other than by purchasing a different
model digital camera and installing the software FIRST
before attaching the camera to the computer. If you
think this is just a Cobra Digital problem, do a search
on the internet. It occurs with almost all brands of
digital cameras on the market, usually the ones that
use proprietary drivers instead of mass media drivers.
go to the link below for the driver, you dont need software as you can explore the camera in my computer and copy then paste the photos, but windows may come up with picture viewer when you connect the cam up to the pc
With some specific exceptions, PENTAX digital camera products are compatible with Windows 98 or later and MacOS 8.6 or later.
If you use an operating system that is incompatible with your PENTAX digital camera, you may still be able to download your pictures. Since most of our digital products use a memory card such as Compactflash™, Secure Digital™, etc., you can obtain a reader (sold separately) for your memory card. Then, instead of connecting the camera to the computer, you can eject your memory card from the camera an insert it directly into your card reader. You simply will need to shop around for a card reader that is compatible with the operating system you use.
Some computers have the capability of automatically recognizing PENTAX digital cameras, and some do not. Depending on what type of computer you have and the OS you work with, you may need to download the appropriate driver from the CD-ROM that accompanied your camera or download from the PENTAX web site. Driver firmware updates, and other information can be downloaded in our technical updates section.
