Pentax Digital Utility 5 - very slow

    I upgraded from 4 to 5 with the K3, and find the new software very slow. I am using a Corei5 with 8GB RAM, so plenty of power!

    Any ideas?

    Mmm, no idea, sorry. Sometimes driver updates can save the day but other than that I'm stumped.

    There was some sort of update for Pentax Utility 5. Maybe that might be the reason … scroll down to the second section of updates :)

    The Pentax Utility software supplied with the camera has always been hopelessly slow. I don't know anyone who actually uses it.
