Hi all...I have recently purchased a used Pentax 1st DL body, but unfortunately the seller did not have the CD/software that came with the camera originally ((i.e....Software CD-ROM S-SW34))....Anyone suggest where I might obtain this??

Regards, Bill D

Anyone else suggest where I might pick one up ???

I don't think you really need any software, not on XP anyway. It will identify it as another hard drive.

Echoing T-Bd
Strictly speaking no digi cam needs software to upload images -ME/2000/XP/Vista simply reads cameras as another drive.
The perceived wisdom with such discs is to leave it in the box.
Some folk state a preference for a particular software - Olympus for example.
But a straightforward image editor will do all that's required and more for free image editors The Gimp/Googles Picassa and Serif -offer free version of older stuff[but be prepared for the e-mail nag to buy the update.]

OK....thanks all...Possibly I felt deprived at not obtaining a CD-ROM in the transaction with the seller...I've ordered the appropriate USB cable to transfer images to Paint Shop Pro on the PC
