I have a Pentax Optio I-10 camera. I never had the need to use the cables that was in the box. There are two extenders (1Yellow and 1 White) the USB end goes where and what does this cable do? Obviously I am not up on what things do and where they are put.

That is the USB AV cable for viewing pictures and videos on a TV. The yellow goes into the yellow Composite video input and the white goes to composite audio in.

Most probably it is an AV cable. It is for connecting the camera to your television then you can view your photos and videos on the TV screen.

You will find similarly coloured sockets on your TV where these can be plugged in. Usually they are at the back or side of the TV but sometimes they are at the front behind a little door.

On some TVs you may need to use the TVs remote control to get to see the picture while on other TVs as soon as you switch on the camera the image will appear.
