Frustration: Transfer of pics

Have searched exhaustively (re: my limited ability!) to transfer pics from my LG800g to my PC. I am able to move mp3 files between PC and phone, via a data cable to the optional Micro-SD card I've installed on the phone but, have had "no-joy" when trying to do so with pics!

Hi. When you hookup your phone to your PC via a data cable, the PC only sees what's on the microsd card. You can move pics back and forth from your LG 800g and your PC once you've changed the storage setting for the camera to external storage.

Start up the camera, touch the screen and select the settings icon. You will see page 1 of 3 of the setting. Select the down arrow to see the second page of the settings. There, you'll see the storage setting. If it shows the phone icon, that means it's set to store in the internal memory. Touch that storage icon to toggle it so that it shows the memory card as the setting. Select OK to save the setting. Now when you take photos, they will be stored on the card, and you'll be able to transfer them via data cable.

For the photos already in the internal memory, I don't know how to move them to the SD card, but you can transfer them at full resolution via Bluetooth to a Bluetooth equipped PC.

Hope this helps.

So far so good! I'll let you know how it does transfer pics from the LG800g to my PC when that time comes. At least I won't be jamming the 800g's internal memory with them, now! ~ rpablito
