Compatibity issues with Pentax KS-1 and Flucard Pro

I recently was bought as a Christmas Present,a Pentax KS-1 which also came with aFlucard Pro memory chip.I am deeply disappointed with what I am expecting from this combination.I cannot tether my camera to my Laptop so I cannot use the camera remotely.I also cannot find the browser to support the Flucard Pro (supposed to be Google Chrome).Please can anyone help.....Bootsie

I also don't have any experience with this, but perhaps this will help?

If you had been bought the Pentax version of the Flucard, Bootsiegator, it does the remote capture you're after - I use it myself. Chrome works fine with it.

But you have received the card manufacturer's version. It transfers files.

You need the O-FC1 Flucard to tether. Other flucard/trek products can only be used for transferring files, I'm afraid.
