Downloading files from K30 to computer

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to download pictures from my K30 to my computer unfortunately some of them download and some don't. The ones that don't show up on the computer as blank grey. The do however show up in the camera. Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

what program are you using?

RAW or JPEG?

SD card reader or USB direct to camera?

Mac/PC/Linux? OS Version?

I just asked the guys at my local camera shop and they are pretty sure it is because I took the shots in RAW. I am using USB direct to camera and a PC. Is there any programs that I can use? Thank you.

yes, just copy the files. Any program that implements the copy command will do.

To 'see' the files... there are many... from acdsee to irfanview... from lightroom to dxo pro...

It sounds like a memory card problem, what you see in camera is a jpg thumbnail. Did you format your card in camera? I forgot to do that with a new card once and got similar results, a hard lesson on important photos.

Have you installed the SilkyPix software that comes on the CD boxed with Pentax cameras?
It should be able to open RAW files that the camera produces.

Could it be possible that your shooting in Raw+? If so then when you download and look at them via the computers picture viewer or a photo viewer that doesn't read the dng raw format then the Jpegs will show but the raw photos will be greyed out. If it is windows viewer then you can get an add-on for it to recognize dng photos for other software it has to be compatible with your K30 dng's.

If RAW PEF Windows won't show thumbnails until you install the RAW codec:
