Mac OS X Lion and remote assistant

Hi all,

Remote Assistant worked fine on my Macbook Pro with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

But on 10.7 Lion it will not see the K10D. The camera does appear as a drive and I can load images from it into Aperture, but remote assistant no longer detects it.

The K10D has the latest firmware and Remote Assistant is 3.51.

Any ideas?

Set up a second hard drive or partition with 10.6 and boot from that when you need remote assistant?

You're not going to get an update from Pentax. All we can hope for is that when Ricoh takes over they change their position on tethering and assist Apple et al in bringing tethering support to Aperture etc.

Or at least publish their tethering specification so decent programmers can write the software themselves. (No, I'm not a programmer now, just an advanced user who knows good programming when he sees it.)
