    How do you download pictures from the Droid to you computer using the USB Cable ??

    When I plug in my Droid, the Icon in my bottom tray only say's it's safe to remove my phone.

    I know this has been answered before and I've done it, but I forgot how to do it and I can't find the thread. :icon_eek:

    Thanks, Tommyd1

    You need to mount it. In the pull down announcement screen there is a dialogue that will ask you if you want to mount it. Say yes. There you go...:)

    What the Droid should have done was make the pictures a shared folder on the home wi-fi network. Then any PC in the house could grab them at will without messing around with the whole mount/unmount thing or a cable.

    So is mounting the only way to go? You can't use Wifi or Bluetooth?

    Thanks.

    You can also just open your gallery, choose the picture, long press on it and a "share" icon will come up, press that and send it to your home computer through gmail.

    I took a picture of a purse while christmas shopping (in case his gf didn't like the one he got her, he could show her the pic of the other one he could exchange it for), send it to his phone, and sent it to his email account.

    He was pretty impressed about that. He was very impressed about how the picture looked on my phone. He was NOT impressed about how it looked on HIS phone, however.

    heh. Sorry. Had to throw that in.

    And if Mount is not an option on the Notifications list, then what?

    I've downloaded pictures before, but there is no mount option now. The pc shows that the motorola is connected (system tray and USB devices), but no drive letter has been added, probably because there is no mount option on the droid.

    Thx

    Thanks

    My DROID has a pop up screen that asks me if I want to mount it.
