CD that came with the K-5

Can anyone tell me if there was anything on the CD that came with my K-5 other than the Digital Camera Utility? My disc (S-SW110) got shredded (or close enough) after it got knocked on the floor and run over with a wheely chair
I've since downloaded the latest version of DCU from the Pentax web site, so if that's all I've lost I can relax and smile at the the destruction.
Thanks,
Marc

Thanks Andrew. I suspect that if there is anything else I'll be able to do download it too. But at this stage I have no idea what that might be! Despite having bought my camera this year it still had Firmware 1.01 so I doubt the CD had the latest version of anything.

It also seems that most folks don't use the DCU that Pentax provides and they process their files in other programs. Still shooting mostly JPG, so I already have a few tools, and I spotted a number of other suggestions for processing images in one of the other forums.

DCU4 is all that is on the disk. There is not even an help or readme file.

Only thing is you need the CD to install the newest version (it checks for the CD), although I would imagine there are ways around that.

That can't be right. My CD came with version 4.31. After the destruction, I downloaded version 4.34 from the web site and installed okay - possibly because I already had a version installed I suppose. If I get a chance I'll try on another computer.

Ok.. I got lucky that I had installed on the other computer before losing the disk, as I can't do a clean install on a new computer.
