HDR on K-30

I recently purchased a K30 after using a K2000 for some time. On the K2000, I can set the setting for HDR and the camera will take 3 shots that I can then put into the computer and using an hdr program manipulate the shots. However, in using the K30, the camera does hdr processing internally, which I do not want. Do I have a setting wrong or is this option just not available on the camera?

Thanks for any help that you can and will give.

If you don't want to have the camera process the file on its own, use auto bracketing mode instead of the in-camera HDR.

Also, when using the HDR feature on the K-30, you will have a short window of opportunity to tell the camera to save the separate RAW images in addition to the single jpeg image.
