    Just tried to download pentax raw pics (2GB) using a sony usb adapter

    Screen "froze"- turned off power and back on- removed usb adapter

    When it powered up-screen shows the DESKTOP. Have control of cursor.

    When cursor is moved to bottom left corner- screen will program icons, but programs will not open

    when cursor moves up left- screen shows applications {calendar/news/weather) but i.e. cant use calculator-

    cursor does not change from arrow to hand
