download k-x raw software?

I have a pentax k-x that came with silky-pix raw converter. I would like to download it to my new windows 8 tablet that does not have a dvd reader. Is there a pentax software download site? Any suggestions for how to copy the dvd to my new laptop?

I don't believe that you can download it. However, you should be able to mount an ISO or just copy the installation files to your tablet.

First, download the latest Pentax Digital Camera Utility Update from here:

Software Downloads : Support & Service | PENTAX RICOH IMAGING

The latest version for the K-x is 4.40.

Then have a look at this thread:

The last two or three posts in that thread about using a SD card or a flash drive may be the most useful to you, if you lack access to a USB DVD player for your tablet.

Thanks. Downloading and then renaming the SD card reader to "S-SW90" did the trick; which I guess is getting around Pentax's protection scheme, but otherwise I would have needed to purchase a usb DVD reader. And I do have the original disk, so thanks!
