    I've never attempted to do what you describe so I can't claim any expertise here--I am pretty familiar with Macs in general but not with the phone part. But I'll try to help you figure it out, if I can.

    Let's start here: What kind of phone do you have (manufacturer & model)?

    (I assume you're using 10.4.x since your problem is posted here...)

When you connect your phone to the mac via the USB does the phone appear on your desktop?

If the phone does mount on the desktop the easiest way to get them on and manage them is with iphoto (or ilife if installed) use the app to import the files. When importing find the phone and look for the images folder.

The manual way.
The mac should pick up most phones and see them as a hard drive. If it does mount on the desk top you can then open the drive and find the images. They are usually in the picture or image folder.

If you cannot see the drive on your desktop and you have bluetooth on your mac. you could transfer the images via bluetooth. Slower but they will get there. You'll just have to pair the devices.

As 'git1' said. If all that fails you'll need to let us know what make the phone is.

How do I transfer pictures from my Samsung phone to my computer?


Which model samsung ? Im assuming its an Android handset.

Plug in the usb cable to your PC/Laptop and also the phone, your phone should beep. Now drag down the top bar and select the usb connected notification, and turn it on.

Wait a few moments and it should popup on your screen, select view files and folders.

Now just drag the pictures over to a folder on your desktop.

--------------------------------------------------

Option 2 (lazy way)

Download the photobucket app from the Market, create and account and login. Upload the pics, when its finished visit www.photobucket.com on your computer and login with the same details and the photos will be there.

First, syncing is the transfer of data between computer software's that are designed to acquire and share with another entity. The sync function usually is embedded in the computer program. Once the computer recognizes compatible software that has several capabilities including transferring data, a USB connection capacity should be achievable. Usually devices that are designed for data transferability should be capable of acquiring a USB connection either as physical cables or wireless Bluetooth technology. The power to sync is contained in the software program. Once software that has sync capabilities is installed on the computer, any USB cable that is attached to an empty port would display a user message asking for further procedures. For example, USB connections on the computer that has media software's would display device recognizes link requiring data transfer. The solution lies in the software that is relied on for sync capabilities. Acquire Windows Media player, Real One player, or ITunes player as downloadable onto the computer to achieve compatibility.


Important Notes

USB ports are available on all computers as versatile connection links to devices that would require communications. The computers original systems are expected to recognize USB cable connection as manufacturers default. Usually, the computer is likely capable of upgrading several software programs that would least communicate with the USB. For example, the program suit installed has compatibility requirements to perform on the computer as an entity. Also, the program suit requires compatibility with USB connection for another device that would be connected to the computer. Attempt to install media transfer programs that are designed with sync features.

Sir i want to transfer my mobile of samsung c3303 photos into pc


Friend,

1. From the Menu go to Settings->Phone->USB Settings. Here select the phone as a Mass Storage Device. Connect via USB cable to the PC. It will appear as an additional drive in MY Computer. Copy all the photos from the phone and paste them on the PC.

2. If you have BT on the PC. Pair the phone with the PC via Bluetooth and select the photos and send to the phone from Options on the phone.

3. Copy all the photos to the memory card and then remove the card from the phone and after inserting it into the jacket/adapter insert it into the card reader on the PC. From My Computer copy and paste all the photos.

I am trying to transfer files from pc to droid. I


  1. Connect Droid to the PC or Mac with USB cable. Obviously the same USB that came with your Droid
  2. Tab or click on the USB connected notification. To access notifications you need to click at the status bar on the top of the screen and drag it down.
  3. Click on Mount
  4. Now Droid will appear on your computer. For PC Droid will appear under Computer and for Mac the phone will appear on the desktop.
  5. Now transfer the files just as your do normally copy and paste
  6. When done, go to the notifications and now touch on turn off USB storage.
I am guessing you still have your usb storage on and it is reading that, when done remove it properly and see what happens
