How can I show data and pictures on my galaxy tab 4 on myc so I can view files because 00000000000I have li0m0ited vi0sion My pc monitor has a 24 inch screen

If you have a usb cable to connect your phone to your computer, try that. The computer should recognize a device being plugged in (make sure your phone screen is unlocked). You should get a popup notification saying that a device has been detected, and it will ask you if you want to sync, open the device folders, etc. Choose to open the folders. If you don't get a popup on your PC, navigate to "My Computer" so you can see all the attached storage devices. One of them should be your phone, indicated by its brand and model number. Double click that icon to open your phone's folders on your computer. Look for one labeled "DCIM". Your pictures should be there, possibly inside a few subfolders. If it's hard to tell which pictures are which, with the cursor in any white space, right click and mouse over the word "view" in the menu, from there, to the right you can choose large or extra large icons. Wait for your computer to change the view of all your pictures and/or folders to a larger icon format so you can see what they are.

How I download pictures from my galaxy phone to my computer?

Plug phone into computer with USB cable and then press the Connect USB Storage button.
then you want to open the second autoplay that comes up. choose Open Folder to view files.
Open the folder DCIM and then the Camera Folder, this should be all your pictures that you can copy and paste over. I like to used Dropbox to transfer my photos. then you don't have to connect any cable and search for pictures you just transfer over the internet and it will sync to your computer. It is nice to also get files put on your phone from your computer too. If you would like to try it please use this link DropBox and you can find it in your Android Market for your phone.

I have a htc h7 from tmobile. i have pics on my phone and wanna download the pics to my laptop into a folder. how do i do that?

Hi there!

You can transfer the pictures from your HTC Hero to your laptop using a USB cable.

First, make sure that you're phone is turn on. Connect the usb cable to the computer and to your HTC. Once you connected the phone & the computer, there will be a USB Connected option that will appear in your phone. Choose "mount." Open my computer and a new USB drive will appear. Open it and look for "DCIM" folder. Open that folder and open the folder named "100Media," that contains all the pictures from your camera.

Hope this helps.

I have the cable to download pics to my computer but can't find the software that came with it. Where can i get the software. Thankd

Hi! You may not necessarily need specific software to copy pictures from your phone to your PC.

- Using the USB cable, plug it into the phone and then plug the USB end into your computer.
- Your PC should run and automatically detect the phone and a pop-up window should open asking you what you would like to do with this new hardware.
- Your choices should be something like: "Open with Windows Explorer", "Open using Windows Media Player", "Take no Action", etc.
- Use the windows explorer options and your computer shoudl automatically open the folders contained in your phone.
- In one of the folders, you should find your pictures.
- To copy all of the pictures, click on one of the pictures then hold the CTRL key and press the "A" key on your keyboard (CTRL + A). All the pics should be highlighted now.
- Now using your mouse, copy the pics (right-click, choose copy)
- Navaigate back to your PC and find a folder to save your pictures, then right-click in that folder and choose PASTE.
- Your pics should now be saved on your PC.

If you do not receive a pop-up with actions listed (as mentioned above), then open up "My Computer" and look for the phone listed under the My Computer window. Double-click on it and the folders on your phone should open. Follow the steps above beginning at step 5. Thanks!

How to download pictures in my computer from a cyber-shot camara

You just have to connect your camera to the computer's usb port using the usb cable. Then right click on your windows START button and choose to click Explore. It will open the windows explorer. Look for the drive letter associated with the camera and click on it. It will show you the list or contents on the right. Just look inside one of those folders to find your pictures. Once found, you would have to select the pictures, then press CTRL c to copy. Then go somewhere on your computer and press CTRL v to paste. That's it.

    Issue with my phone

    While you are in the picture album go to options, then choose manage and then choose delete.

    You can also connect your phone to the computer with the USB cord. Navigate on your computer to the correct drive folder and you can delete the album from there. It will be in a folder called pictures.
