Q: Solved: how do I transfer pictures/video from cell phone to computer

I don't know if this is the right forum but I thought I'd start here.

I have a Motorola Entice W766.

I currently have pictures and video I took with the phone located in the phone's internal memory.

When I click on the mobile phone icon in vista, the device is listed as "V CAST Moblile Phone-Internal Memory". I can see the music files I uploaded from my computer to my phone via usb cable using vcast/rhapsody. But there are no picture or video files listed even though I know they are there because I can view them on my phone.

I did set all files and folders to not hidden using vista.

So, how in the heck do I find the files? And then, how do I transfer them to my pc?

Any help appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I wanted to transfer my pics/videos from my Motorola phone (Verizon carrier) to my PC. It was suggested on this site that I buy Motorola Phone Tools, that this software would do the job. I also talked with Verizon to make sure it would do the trick. But when I got the software I was unable to transfer any pic/video. So I called Motorola for help. I found out Verizon prohibits Motorola from configuing their phone software to transfer pics/videos.

I surmized the reason Verizon prohibits this particular function is they want to make people pay messaging charges to get pics/videos from phone to pc. Because everytime you send a pic/video from your phone it is considered a message. The Motorola tech said almost all carriers they provide phones to prevent pic/video transfers using MPT. So be sure to ask your carrier first if they allow the phone you buy (not just Motorola) to work with its respective phone software. Then call the phone manufacturer to make sure you were given the correct info.

By the way you can transfer pics using Verizon two ways.

One-send pic/video as "message" to your email-then transfer from email to pc.

Two-send pic/video to your Verizon account that offers a pic/video gallery to accept your "messages". It offers some options such as word bubbles and picture altering. To get to your pc you just copy/paste to you pc.

So a warning to all those who might be considering purchasing MPT to work with Verizon and most other carriers. If you... Read more

A:Pictures from cell phone to computer and then email out

If you can open them in a viewer like the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer you should be able to “Save as” a JPG. If it doesn’t work there try Irfanview: www.irfanview.com

I have recently taken about thirty pictures on my Samsung mobile of a building project being worked on and would like to transfer them to my PC. I read somewhere that I should attach my phone to my PC by using a USB cable, which I did, but all that happened was (under "My Computer") a message showing a new "Removable Disk". When I clicked on that it asked me to "insert a removable disk in that drive" which of course is no use to me! Do I need some sort of new software to do this, or what other options are there? Thanks.

My Motorola V360 will play video but I can't figure out how to transcode downloaded videos so they work on the phone. It doesn't help that I don't know much about video codecs. The V360 uses mpeg4/h.263 (I don't know what the h.263 means), the screen size is 176x220- do I need to resize the video or something? Any way of doing this, for free, preferably.

If your cellphone has a memory card with the pictures on it, remove the card and put it in a card-reader (your Dell 1501 should have a card reader built-in).

Most cellphones use a microSD memory card. If that's what your's is you'll need to buy a microSD adapter so you can put it in the full-size SD card reader slot on your Dell.

Hi all.. I am hoping someone can help me. I am trying to put a program with some JAR and TAR files on my phone. I have connected my phone which is an LG env3 to my laptop (with windows 7) via bluetooth.. It connects fine and I can even send pictures files from my laptop to my phone... but when I try to transfer a JAR file I am getting different error messages.. First I click on send to phone from my laptop, then I attach the file and click on the LG phone and it says copying but then says "request could not be honored." So then I clicked on the phone and then choose a folder like music or pictures and I got the message "incorrect permission" Can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix this? are some phones just not compatible with the JAR files? Do I need to change the JAR files to a different type of file? It is a java enabled phone so I dont see why it wont work... Anyway I appreciate any advice if any of you have any. Thanks!!

Recently my Brother tried sending 8 pictures to me and my other two Brothers, yes there are four of us.

Brother sending pic's is using; A 4S iphone w/ ATT but says, "that's never mattered before".

My wife and I have Verizon and I never received the text message to my LG_VN150 phone I can receive and send, but it costs me.

He then sent the text to my wife's' cell phone a Galaxy S3 and she never received them. And, finally to our gmail account, four of the pic's for a total of 443KB made it, the other four were replaced with:

The total of all eight (about 1MB) should not have exceeded attachment limits for our email. I have asked him to download the pic's to his desk or laptop and send them to see if we can isolate the problem to his 4S.

Of the other two Brothers one did not receive any, I'm not sure of his equipment or plan; and one had no problem and received all eight, I believe he also has ATT.
I'm thinking some protocol with the Brothers 4S ATT text messaging is overriding the pic's but I haven't found anything on it yet and would like to know if any other members have any thoughts on this matter?

You can do direct cable transfer as long as you have the right cables to connect the PC to the phone.

Depending on the Operating System and Make & Model of phone, you may or may not require additional software to make the transfer.

The easiest way by far is if you phone has a removable memory card.

I have a Nokia 6555 cell phone. I have also downloaded the Nokia PC suite to my computer and connect to my phone using a USB cable. I have downloaded photos to my phone with no issues. However, when I download a video to the phone it will not play. The Nokia PC suite has a video converter which converts the video to .3gp format which is supported by my phone. However, when I attempt to play the video, the player opens and it does not play. I have taken video with the phone itself and the videos are stored in .3gp format and they play fine. But any video I convert to .3gp on my computer and download to my phone will not play???

At first, I thought it was a coincidence. "There's no way a computer and a cell phone interact with each other" is what I thought. But now I'm sure, after numerous incidents, that my phone is causing my computer to crash. It will suddenly freeze and blur the screen when my cell phone rings. Now, it doesn't happen all the time; most of the time my cell phone will ring and nothing will happen. But occasionally, my cell phone ringing will coincide with my computer crashing (it just happened again as I'm typing this; obviously I'm on a different computer).

There have been times, however, that the computer has crashed without the phone ringing. But in these cases, my speakers, which buzz every time the phone rings, will still buzz. It seems bizarre to me that a cell phone ring will cause a computer to fail like that. In cases where it didn't ring, my speakers still buzz as if it had rang. Perhaps the problem lies beyond just a cell phone, towards something the cell phone creates and another thing may reproduce, to cause the speakers to still buzz?

Another odd thing is that this seems to happen in phases. I had this problem several months ago and I had thought it was a power issue. I reorganized the cables and it seemed to work fine until a couple days ago, when the problem started acting up again.

Thanks in advance for any answers you can give.

What phone do you have?
Usually when you get the USB adapter, it will come with software that will transfer images if it doesn't show up as a removeable drive.
The images need to be within a certain pixel range, but you can just edit them with paint.
No, the phone doesn't need to be a picture phone, it just needs the capability of transfering data from your PC/MAC.

Try searching google for something like: 'kyocera phantom photo transfer' or '(insert brand name and model here) ring tones and downloads'.

As noted in the subject line I dropped my cell phone in a pool of water today (the case slipped off my belt while I was playing with the dog) and it was a while before I noticed it sitting in the pool. I immediately removed the battery and the phone is now drying out.

First question: how long should I wait before trying to power it again?

Second question: if it will not power up either on battery or plug is it worth trying to get it repaired? I hate the idea of paying someone to look at it if its not likely to be repairable but I also hate the idea of simply junking it.

I want a phone that does these 2 things extremely well. High quality audio and texting technology.

1. Superior high quality audio. That includes a microphone, and a dynamic audio range speaker. As well as the means to transfer the voice data effectively.
2. Advanced texting program. I want the software to make sense, user tested. I don't want any delays, I want the backspace button to work immediately, I don't want my messages accidentally sending either. I don't want a full qwerty keyboard either. I can text just as fast with the numeral keyboard, with the auto-fill key strokes as well as saving the word to the phones dictionary.

Other important basics: Long battery life, which should be easily attainable with the stripped basic/advanced features. (some say bluetooth and camera are now basic features). Phone should be durable, buttons not easily broken, screen not easily scratched, easy to remove battery and sim card.
That's it! I don't want internet, bluetooth, camera, voice record or commands, usb port, flashlight, etc - IF: it interferes with the first 2 things I want.

I think a key problem with this is that it is 'few and far in-between' with people who would want this. Maybe demand isn't high enough.

And you can do a clean install using the CD media that your Operating system comes on. It's not necessary to boot from a floppy first, as the Cds should be bootable.
