Hey, everyone. My name is Ryan and I'm technologically challenged. (Group responds) "Hi, Ryan."
I'm trying to get some new pics to transfer from my phone to my pc and the process is filling me with a sensation that must be a first cousin to road rage. I mean, for real? Is it supposed to be this hard? Or, am I just that stoopid? Or, am I missing something really simple. Well, I hope to find out while I'm here. (Group responds) "Keep coming back!"
First, welcome to the forums!
now onto your question.... are you connecting your phone to your PC with the usb cable or over wi-fi?
if you're using the usb cable, you need to enable usb mass storage mode on your device. (when you connect your phone via usb there will be a notification in the notification bar.... select that and then enable mass storage)
if you're using wi-fi you'll need a file explorer that can connect to shared folders... ie Estrongs File Explorer or Astro File Manager.
Welcome! Follow Martin's instructions (USB) and the transfer is a very simple process.

Welcome to the forum:welcome:
when i conect via usb, I have four options
2. HTC Sync
3. Disk drive (which is what I've chosen)
4. Mobile broadband connect
I don't see anything that asks me to enable usb mass storage
(still with the festering, road rage-like frustration)
is your computer recognizing a removable storage device when you connect with usb?
When you connect there should be a notification in your notification bar. Scroll the bar done and tap USB Connected. A new window will open and tap Turn on USB
when I connect, the PC recognizes my phone (Ryan Droid H:) and the sd card (removeable disk G:) seperately. Who knew? Thanks to you both for walking me through this, that numbing rage feeling is gone. Thanks.
Glad you got it figured out!
