According to Pentax's website, the PhotoBrowser is listed for use with Windows XP/ME/2000 only. You can call Pentax at (800) 877-0155 and talk to a technician. Alternatively, you could e-mail them--they have responded to my inquiries within 48 hours. Good luck!

All that you need is able to download your images from the SD Card to the PC with a suitable graphics package to enable subsequent enhancements; Photoshop v6 will function OK but lacks RAW support

If you work in RAW, then you will need a converter that is compatible with 98SE.

I tried to run Pentax Software on my laptop with Windows 98 and it would not work.

I does work quite happily on my Window ME desktop.

Thank you for the input. I will search for a raw converter that operates under Win 98.
