    Plug it into your pc, copy the folder your pics are in and put it wherever you want on your pc.

    end of line...

    Drop box is good. The amazon free app for today, 8/12, allows you to access your phone through your computer without plugging it in as well.

    You have to be careful with those wifi sharing apps. A lot of times security can be an issue. If you have it running someone who knows what they are doing can use it to access your phone. I like drop box and its still free for 2gb.

    Dude use isyncr with the wifi add on. This app is amazing it can transfer your itunes library and respect checked songs so you sync only what you want. It can also upload your Amazon mp3 purchases you made from your phone to your pc and best of all you can upload your pics and videos. Then when you resync it'll only upload the new pics and vids so you wont double copy everything. Also if space on your sd card is a concern you can have it delete your originals on your phone after they've been uploaded to your pc. You can sync it all manually or schedule automatic syncing. Its bad ass and only a couple of bucks plus its on the Amazon Appstore which I like shopping at better because my wife and I can share one account and purchase the app once and download to both our phones. PARTY ON!

    When I plug in I get a list of options that disappears before I can interpret them. I thought "disk drive" would be correct but it is not.
    Your second step, "copy the folder......" does not happen. Where is the folder? What is its name?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    By default the camera stores them on the sd card in a folder called dcim. After locating the dcim folder it's as easy as copy and paste on to your other storage location.

    If you have wireless internet at home I suggest an app called software data cable. It allows you to transfer files back and forth to any computer on the network wirelessly.

    Thanks for the replies. I seem to have a problem communicating the problem. I tried to make sure before buying the Thunderbolt that photos to PC was a simple one step process. I was assured that it appears as a drive upon plug-in. I find the on-line manual to be incorrect. If I plug in the phone and select the DISK DRIVE option I do not see my photos. I get a folder called VERIZON MOBILE. In that folder are 2 others, DRV and IMG. Neither contains the photos nor the DCIM folder where they are stored. I have to use the option called MEDEA SYNC. This opens a pop up window with 3 options: Open device to view files using Windows Explorer, Sync Digital Medea Files to this Device Using Medea Player, Take no action. I select the first option, Open Device...... This opens an instance of Windows Explorer and the correct folder External Storage Device. If I open another instance of explorer it shows the parent folder My HTC Phone. This seems a convoluted process as well as not conforming to the instruction manual that specifies the DISK DRIVE option after plug in.

    There is another sign that something is wrong. I use Paint Shop Pro to mess with my photos. But PSP does not "see" the MY HTC PHONE folder. Neither does IRFANVIEW.

    Larry's reply is at the heart of the problem..... locating the DCIM. Why do I have to use the SYNC option? recDNA may have the best answer but it is just a patch for something that should be built into the TB.

    Using Windows XP with all updates.

    PS: Also cannot view the files in thumbnail mode. Is there an app/patch for that?

    thanks,

    Rich

    I think I may have had a similar problem. From home screen, press menu >> settings >> Connect to PC. I had the default connection type to be disk drive. That caused problems with Verizon wanting to install their management software which makes easy tasks complicated. I set the default connection type to charge only and checked the box to ask me every time I connect to a PC. When I connect it and asks, I select disk drive, ignore any verizon prompts to install software, and open the SD card from "My Computer." After that, it's as easy as navigating to the folder noted above then drag and drop the pics onto your PC. Hope that helps.

    My default is charge only and ask me. When I connect I get the menu but no prompts to install any software. If I select disk drive, I can find a folder in "My computer" called Verizon Mobile as described in my earlier post. I guess I'll have to get some Verizon store to
    plug my phone into one of their computers and see what happens. I have tried using 3 different XP computers with the same results.

    Another problem is that once disk drive is selected, ther eis no way to go back to make another selection except to unplug and start over.
    Very poor software.

    Question: Can you see the Verizon folder in any other applications? I can't, as noted above and suspect that is another symptom of the problem.
