    I'm using a Windows 8 phone and my photos automatically upload to my SkyDrive. No need for USB connection, no app manager. easy as 1 2 3.
    Open up the Desktop SkyDrive app or SkyDrive itself and all of the photos are there
    Thanks John

    Phil,

    Since you have A Galaxy you need either Samsung Kies (hardwire downloadable PC App) or Kies Air (Wi-Fi Phone App) both are free and the latter should be on your phone already look in applications. HTH

    Connecting a USB cable from phone to PC is an easy way to move photos. There is also an app called Wifi File Explorer - you can transfer files via wifi from one device to another - that might be something to consider...

    When you plug the phone to the computer via a USB cable, open up File Manager, and then see if a new folder has appeared in the list. It may be your phone. If so, then you can open that folder, find the pics, then simply drag them to another folder on the computer.

    I have a Galaxy S4 and all you have to do is plug the micro-USB cord into your phone first then plug the USB connection into your PC USB 2.0 connection. Your phone is seen as a storage device.
    Here are the instructions from the manual:
    " Connecting as a Storage Device
    You can connect your device to a PC as a removable disk and
    access the file directory. If you insert a memory card in the
    device, you can also access the files directory from the
    memory card by using the device as a memory card reader.
    Note: The file directory of the memory card displays as a
    removable disk, separate from the internal memory.
    1. Connect the USB cable to the device and connect the
    cable to the computer. After a few seconds, a pop-up
    window displays on the PC when connected.
    2. On the PC pop-up, click Open device to view files.
    3. Copy files from the PC to the memory card. "
    You do not have to have KIES to access your phone on a PC. KIES is a Samsung program that will save all the settings etc. on your phone to your PC in case you have to factory reset your phone.
    If your phone won't connect by the USB cable then you have a problem with either your phone or your PC or the cable itself. Do other USB devices connect ok to your PC?
    Hope this helps.

    Yes, use bluetooth or USB cable to connect your phone to your computer, and find the photos' folder. Copy and paste

    Use USB data cable of your phone to connect your phone with PC. You can also use Bluetooth device to connect phone with your PC and after that you can easily move your photos from phone memory to PC.

    When I purchased a USB cable for my Pantech phone, there was a choice. I could get a cable with only the power wires or one with power & signal wires. Maybe your cable is power only?

    I think phildcat left this discussion over a year ago but as to a Pantech phone that may be true, but on the Galaxy S phones there is only 1 cable with an adapter for charging and the USB plug w/o the adapter is for data.
