    I looked through the first 5 pages and didnt see this thread. I want to move the pictures from my X to my pc. When I connect it, I cant find the pictures in any of the folders.
    Am I just looking in the wrong place. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Camera photos are in the DCIM/Camera Directory. Put the phone in USB Mass Storage mode, navigate to it via My Computer.

    When you connect the X you have to make sure you mount it "mass media" or "sd card" I am not exactly sure what it is called on the DX but there are two different storage sections on the X

    Thanks, I was in the wrong mode.
    Is there anyway to move these to the SD card to save room or is that where they are?

    Difference between PC Mode & USB Mass Storage Mode?

    Juicemane, can you tell me the difference between PC Mode & USB Mass Storage Mode? My manual (Droid 2) does not even mention PC Mode. In practical terms, when do you use each one? My google search unproductive; any web references welcome.

    In PC mode you are able to read and interact with the SD card on both the PC and the X. In USB Mass Storage Mode your Droid X cannot see the SD card and it can only be seen by your PC.

    USB Mass storage is for moving media such as music, pictures, ringtones, zips and files to your phone from the PC or from PC to your phone.

    Interesting.
    In PC Mode, my Windows (7) Explorer did NOT show all the files on the SD card, while it did in USB Mass Storage mode. In practical terms, what would PC mode generally be used for?

    Thanks.
