Have you put the camera in the mdoe where it "listens" to the remote (access it from the Fn menu)? Are you pinting the remote at the sensor on the front of the camera?

Now I'm the one confused. "Pentax Remote Control F" is the name of the infrared remote control that works with your K100D. I was not aware there was a wired remote by such a similar name.

Don't feel stupid - I might well have made exactly the same mistake because of the similarity in names!
