newbie

Hello: My very first post and my very first Pentax. I just purchased the X70 yesterday. I'm having just one BIG problem. I can't seem to transfer my pics from the camera to the computer. I downloaded the ACDsee software. For some reason the computer isn't recognizing the camera. Sometimes I get a message"USB malfunctioned" and "windows does not recognize it". I'm not sure if I just have a faulty new usb cable or if it could be something deeper than that. My memory card is minimal (my daughter has my good one). Could this have something to do with it? Has anyone else out there encountered problems when first setting up. I am excited to begin using my camera!! I would appreciate any advice whatsoever!!

Welcome to the forum! You might try it with a card reader. It won't cost you a lot and I find easier then connecting my camera to the computer.

Thank you for the quick reply. I am going to go buy a card reader tomorrow and see if that solves the problem. I will let you know.
