    I have a bunch of old pics saved in a new folder on my computer, anyway to send them all at once to the droid in an easy way.

    kpoker have you tried just mounting your droid to your computer and copying the folder into the DCIM folder of your sdcard?

    No, I havent. How would I do that? And if I cant, how can I email my phone the pics as attachments?

    Still trying to do this. Want to send individual pics and videos from my computer to my new phone, they were originally on my old phone.

    This is what I always do:

    -connect your phone to computer via usb cable and mount.
    -open the phone's drive, you should see all the diferent folders.
    -create a new folder called old pics or something.
    -copy/paste or drag/drop the folder from your computer to the one on the e phone.
    -close/eject (windows/mac) window.
    -unplug phone.
    -go to gallery on phone and should see an album with the old pics in it.

    Once you have the phone's drive open in the computer, take advantage and create different folder for different pictures like trips, pets, cars, wallpapers,etc... they'll show up as albums in your phone's gallery.

    Look at your power cord. It's a usb cable with an attachment at the end to plug into the wall.

    Once you have it plugged into the computer, you need to swipe down the notification bar, click on the USB Connected thing, and choose "mount" to mount the sd card so your computer will see it. It will then show up as a drive letter on your computer.
