    Pentax Optio S40 -- downloaded pix perfectly via USB "plug and play" running XP. Installed XP SP2. Will not recognize camera or download pix. Cannot find patch. Installed software bundled with cam -- something like "ACDSEE". Loads and runs but still will not download pics from cam. Still works perfectly on my other machine with XP SP1. Help plz! My wife wants her film camera back!

    Thank you. That page does not list this particular model S40, but it appears that I may be able to download a newer version of the software on the CD that came with the camera; I'll check it out. -cb.

    If you do not find the right USB driver on the original CD, on that page there is an option under current software to select Optio S4i. When you click there it will say for Optio S41 which may be close enough to your camera to work. I hope this helps.

    With the camera plugged in and turned on, is there another drive letter in Windows Explorer for “Removable drive” or “Camera”. If there is you can download directly from that rather than through software.

    You could go to Control Panel>Add/remove programs and uninstall SP2. I did it once when I didn’t have time to mess with some of the new features that were causing problems and it worked fine. I later reinstalled it when I had more time.
