Can anybody help? Just got Pentax Optio digital camera and having problems with usb connection. Drivers loaded ok and pc recognises camera on connection no problem. The problem starts when I try to download the images from the camera. The pc usually locks up or crashes to a blue screen and can only be recovered by rebooting. I'm running win98se and have loaded latest usb updates from microsoft. I have tried disconnecting and uninstalling all other usb devices to no avail.
How are you getting the photo's of the camera? this is how I do it. Create a Folder on the C:\ drive and put a name to it, you camera will show in Explorer as ether a camera icon or as a removable drive, ether way double click the icon so you see all the pics select all then right click and drag to new folder leave the camera until the light stops flashing, you should then be able to do what you want with the pics
Thanks for your response guys (or girls?). I have just checked write back caching to find it is already disabled. Yes my camera is listed as a removable drive. Sometimes as soon as i click on this drive to open the folder my pc hangs, sometimes it will let me open the folder but when i start to drag the images it then locks. Occasionally it will actually let me move the images without problems??????? Any suggestions are gratefully received.
