    I just bought a used Pentax *ist DL (Very good price) for my teen aged
    daughter as her first DSLR and need the PENTAX PHOTO Browser and PENTAX
    PHOTO Laboratory software disk. Can anyone help? The upgrades on require insertion of the original disk to verify. Thanks,

    I don't know anything about Pentax (used to have a film Pentax way back
    somewhere in late 60's or so?), but in general you don't need any software
    comes with camera to enjoy photography. Matter fact, I have so many cameras
    (started with P&S then 4 DSLRs) and never installed any software came with
    any camera.

    Thanks guys, I have irfan and use it fairly well. Also have P&S fuji, canon
    and a Pentax OPTO software on my other computer. I guess I will set her up
    with the Irfan view and all the plug ins. Just wanted to make it special for
    her Christmas if I could find the software, just D/L the manual (200+
    pages). I have to do the camera's firmware upgrade, as it has a 2GB card and
    the camera only thinks its a 1GB. Trying to work any bugs out before I give
    it to her.
    I may be back with Q's, it's been 25 years since I had my SLR's & TLR. I
    hope she enjoys it as much as I did when I was her age.

    I've copied the disk to an ISO file; it's 164MB. I can FTP it to
    somewhere if you have a destination...

    Or other suggestions for the transfer? Comcast limits things to
    8MB/file for "my web" or whatever.

    (You can use an ISO burner to re-create the original disk. Like
