k 1 100 Software

Hi, I have just bought a K 1 and it came with a CD which I assume had Software and drivers for downloading, my laptop does not have CD reader, does anyone know if I can download the required material anywhere?

Cheers Doc

Nothing required on the CD as far as I know. I've never taken mine out of the box. I assume it would have a copy of the Pentax DCU software which is OK if you have nothing else but almost anything else would be better.

Anyway here is the download page for both firmware and software: Software Downloads : Support & Service | RICOH IMAGING

No drivers are needed. The only software on the CD really is Digital Camera Utility 5. If you have a photo editor that can handle Raw files you don't really need it except for Pixel Shift resolution. Even that can be handled in other programs like Rawtherapee.

However you can download the update files from Ricoh Imaging's support site and install it to your laptop (jump to the last few pages on the PC version for current instructions):

You can download the DCU update from Ricoh and install it without the CD.
