Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Where does the process break down? is there any error message accompanying the failure to transfer photos?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No but Microsoft have recently loaded windows 10 onto my computer and I have been having all sorts of problems
Expert:  Russell H. replied 11 months ago.

OK, I see. The introduction of Windows 10 may have changed matters for your system.

Have you loaded the Pandigital camera utility *after* Windows 10 was loaded on your computer?

If not, I would advise that you

1. uninstall the old installed instance of Pandigital camera utility

2. restart the computer

3. reinstall the Pandigital camera utility.

4. connect the camera, *after* it is done installing, and see if the Pandigital utility can use the camera properly.

even if the sd card is plugged into the computer
Expert:  Russell H. replied 11 months ago.

Is there any error message, or does the camera connection just seem 'dead' ?

Try looking in the


display, for a camera object or 'drive' that might appear, if the camera is being recognized by the computer.

What is the maker and model of your camera?

Pentax K-x
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Russell, can you email any things to try my wife needs me to take her to the doctors. Thanks Allan
Expert:  Russell H. replied 11 months ago.

It seems the camera is not recognized by your Windows 10 (upgraded) PC, but it should be.

I cannot find anything like Windows 10 drivers for your Pentax K-x model, though there should be something of the sort.

With apologies I have Opted Out... with a parting suggestion, that you may need to try a different USB cable, or several different USB ports on the computer, just in case one has gone dead.
