    This is what the adapter looks like.

    And again with the micro SD partially inserted.

    You don't need the reader though since your computer can read your SD card in your phone (you don't have to remove the card) by plugging in the micro usb cable included with your phone.

    Thank you for the explanation. I may have wasted .89... dang, could have bought a McDouble with that for 11 more cents. :angry:

    Oh well... Its only a buck.
    Did you buy the card or is it one that came with the phone?I'm guessing you don't have a sleeve for it. You should have the data cable, right ?

    The card I believe came with the LG Ally I had before the Droid 3... so no sleeve. The data cable is the cable that connects phone to computer and also charges it via USB, right? Yes I have like 3 of those (if that is what you are referring too).

    That's the one. Plug your phone into the computer and you should see a window pop up. Click on the open files option and you can browse all your files. Copy/paste/move... Do whatever. Do the same with the DNA. Then its just drag and drop as you would anything else when moving things around on your computer.

    You might also check out AirDroid! Great app, allows you to connect your Android phone to your PC wirelessly, as long as they're both connected to the same WiFi network.

    I used AirDroid just last night to tranfer photos from my Asus Transformer Prime to my DNA, and it went very smoothly and quickly! Easier then plugging cables in, to connect to your PC.

    I have to do it this way because something is messed up in the old phone and I can't get it to sync via USB.

    So what I did. I downloaded AirDroid on my old phone..... downloaded the photos to the computer, they are in a zip folder.

    How do I get them on the new DNA Phone? (I downloaded AirDroid on the new phone also)

    When you pluged your D3 into your pc, did anything pop up on your pc screen?
    You might have needed to set the D3 to mass storage.

    Where would I do that?

    When I plugged it in ... thing on bottom right said can't connect to USB... it seemed maybe like a setting. Unable to connect to USB. it would charge it just not open it up like the folders.

    Go into settings/storage and see if their is a choice for usb mass storage or charge only. (its been a long time since I was on gingerbread)
