    I took a video and saved it (Moto Droid 2.1) and when I went to send it, it was over my email limit in size. I tried to tether to my computer but it only moved it over as a "picture", not a video. What am I doing wrong??

    thanks

    Connect your phone via usb
    Pull down your status bar and press usb connected
    and turn on usb storage
    your computer should prompt a window which will allow you to select open folder to view files if not just hit start click computer and select removable disk
    once inside this browse to the file and drag and drop it to your desktop or some where on your computer and that's it

    video download

    Thanks- thought that's what I did but couldn't find the "video", just pictures. I'll give it another shot to see if I might have just missed it.

    Also, just downloaded "Dropbox" so might give that a try as well.

    THANKS

    Videos seem to be in \DCIM\Camera on my SD card. Just not that they're in there along with the photos so be sure you're copying the correct file(s).

    How did you determine it was "moved over as a picture"? AFAIK, this isn't possible. The file is whatever it is and copying doesn't change the file. Keep in mind that videos are in 3GP format (IIRC) and your PC may not be able to decode them.

    YEP- that was it; I thought that DCIM\ sounded familiar.....I was looking in the wrong directory.

    Thanks!!
