It should be added that if you actually have the CD, you can install right from there too But the above method will work without a CD.

I think the OP meant ricoh-imgaging.co.jp, I always just type in pentax.jp which will redirect you.

Nice. I wondered if the work around applied to the Mac. This message should be linked/merged/copied into this thread:

Except Macs haven't had an included media drive for years...So to use the CD you have to buy a CD/DVD drive...
