When transferring pictures from my computer to my micro-SD card, an icon with a question mark appears when I go to look at the pictures on the phone. The pictures were originally taken with the enV and I have not changed the format in any way. They show up fine when I put the micro-SD card in my computer. Why can't I see the pictures on my phone? They are jpeg images set at a resolution of 1600 x 1200.

Hi, Not all cell phones come with special software to transfer photos, music, video and other file formats from your computer to your phone. In fact, some cell phone providers desire that you purchase this software separately and make it difficult to transfer music any other way. However, most users can typically hook their cell phone to a computer with a USB cable and transfer music to a cell phone as if it were an external drive, such as a USB stick or an SD card. Note: This process might not work with all cell phones.
Connect your cell phone to the computer using the USB cable.
Wait for the computer to recognize your cell phone as an external drive. If a dialog box does not pop up with the name of your cell phone within a few minutes, open the Windows Explorer folder and navigate to the external drive in the left pane. Sometimes the name of the drive will show up as "Removable Disk."
Open the music folder of your cell phone. In some cases, it might be under a "My Media," "My Music" or similar folder.
Drag and drop the music files into their own folder under the cell phone's music directory. This way, it should be convenient to find the files once they're on the phone. Wait for the files to copy completely.
Disconnect the cell phone from the USB cable. If there is a Safely Remove Hardware icon in the bottom right corner of your taskbar, use this utility to safely remove the drive.
Tips & Warnings
If your cell phone supports an SD or micro SD expansion card, transfer music onto this card using the above method instead of transferring music directly to the phone. This way, you don't hog space with large music files and slow down the performance of your phone.
According to Simple help.net, sometimes a USB connection icon will appear in the window of certain cell phone types when you connect. In some cases you might need to tap this icon to confirm the USB data transfer before you can begin moving files to the phone.
Hi, first ensure that you have a micro sd memory expansion fitted to the card as the phone has no room in its time memory for downloading music into it. Connect your (powered up) phone to your PC via the usb lead provided with the phone.

Micro SD cards for cell phones
are now costing less and are holding more memory. 4GB SD cards can hold
an estimated 1000 songs, over 13,000 images, or 22 hours of video
individually. 2GB memory cards hold roughly half those estimates and
8GB SD cards would hold double. So if your cell phone
has a SD card slot learn how to utilize this expandable memory option
on your device. Follow these steps and you will soon be enjoying your
music, pictures, and video on your phone!
Insert your SD memory card adaptor (with micro SD card inserted)
into your SD Card drive on your computer. This should open a "Secure
Digital Storage Device" or similar window. If not, go to "My Computer"
to locate your SD card and open it.

that your pictures are stored on. Simply click and drag a file or
multiple files and drop them into your SD Card window or folder. You

Please try to back up the music and picture that you have on the memory card, try to format the card using the phone before transferring the music and pictures again. Try to consider the memory capacity of the card, make sure that it is compatible with the phone.
If you have a micro SD card that has an adapter for your computer you can plug it into your computer and open it inside an explorer window and drag and drop pictures from your computer folder to your picture folder on the micro SD card. You can definitely do it. I just did it for a friend of mine and it works perfectly. That's why they sell the micro SD cards with the adapters for your computers...so you can transfer things back and forth. Mine is the 8GB Kingston that comes with adapters from micro to mini to regular SD card and to USB port. I bought it from Newegg.com for under $20.
If the pics are on the computer, go to Windows Media Player 11 in the toolbar click on the arrow below Library, click on pictures, any pics on the computer should show up in the picture library, sync your phone via cable drag and drop to sync list and they should transfer. Pictures have to be in the right format to show up on a cell phone.
Check with the manual and see what type of format is/are supported by your phone. I have had both LG and Samsung phones and unfortunately, they do not share the same formats for pix, flix, I think the music files are similar.
