Re: cant transfer files
In my opinion, i think transferring pics or other things will be best with help of memory card reader. It is fast and easy to transfer files n pics from phone to PC than with data cables or bluetooth devices. SO use memory card reader . I think it works for sure.
If u like this solution, give me feedback as fast as soon. It will help for us to be encouraged to help mobile users like u.

Many camera phones simply require you to plug one end of the USB cord into the phone and the other end into your computer's USB port, then turn on the phone.
Once the phone is on and the computer says the device is ready to use, then you should be able to see it on your computer listed as one of the removable storage devices.
If you use a Windows system, just click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop or on the START MENU to see a list of all the drives and storage devices currently connected to your computer.
Look in the section there titled DEVICES WITH REMOVABLE STORAGE or something similar to that. You should see your phone listed there in that section. Then just click on that icon to open up the folder in your phone's memory which contains all the photos.
Once that folder is open, you should see all the image files which are stored in your phone memory. To transfer them to your computer, normally you can just COPY and PASTE them all back to your DESKTOP or to any other folder on your computer the same as you would for any other kind of file.
To COPY a file just RIGHT CLICK on it with the mouse, then select COPY from the drop down menu which appears.
To PASTE it somewhere else just move your mouse pointer to an empty spot on your desktop or in a different folder on your computer and then RIGHT CLICK again, then select the PASTE option from the drop down menu.
Remember that you can also COPY and PASTE a buch of files at the same time by first LEFT CLICKING on a spot near the files you want to copy and then while holding down the left mouse button, move your mouse pointer. This creates a selection box with which you can encircle all the files you want to copy at one time. When your selection box includes and highlights all those files you want to copy just let go of the left mouse button.
Now just RIGHT click on one of the highlighted files contained in your selection box and select COPY. This will now copy ALL the highlighted files so that you can transfer them all at the same time. Then just PASTE them somewhere on your computer as before.
Just insert the USB port of your phone to the computer. After the computer was recognize your phone go to My Computer and just see if your phone are display. Then double click the phone and select were the photo files was saved. After that right click the photo then click copy then paste it to the computer.
hi friend here are several ways to transfer mobile phone
photos onto your PC, ranging from, emailing them using GPRS, Bluetooth
file transfers, Infrared file transfer, using MMS service, using a card
reader or simply using a data cable. VideoJug themselves even have a
film on the subject, but this guide will address transferring
photographs to your PC using the manufacturer supplied data-cable and
Step 1: Check To See If You Have The data Cable And SoftwareMost
mobile phones nowadays come standard with a USB data transfer cable and
bundled software utility. Check the box that your mobile phone came
with for the cable and CD-Rom. If not provided with the software, it
may be available as a free download from the manufacturer’s website. If
your phone did not come with a data cable, check the manual if your
model supports data cable transfers.
Step 2: Install The Communication SoftwareOnce
you have located your software CD, check the system requirements
necessary to run the software such as hardware specifications,
operating systems supported etc. Install the software following
on-screen instructions, but do not plug in the USB data cable or phone
in just yet, unless the software requests you to do so during the
Step 3: Connect Your Mobile Phone To The PC Using The Data CableOnce
the installation is complete, the software would usually require a
reboot of the PC before plugging in the mobile phone for the first
time. Then connect your mobile phone to the data, and the cable to the
USB port of your PC. Several phones may display a message on the mobile
display that the phone is now connected to the PC, but if not don’t
worry just yet!
never to unplug or disconnect the data cable from the phone during a
data transfer or you could end up damaging your phone or loosing all
Step 4: Start Up The Software Package And Locate The Image Or File Transfer UtilityOnce
connected, start up your mobile phone’s software, and browse through
the interface. Most manufacturers offer some form of phone browser
where you can browse through the content on your phone, copying files
onto, or taking files off the mobile. The software utility may also
offer a separate tool for transferring photos and video shot with your
mobile, if this is the case use the utility!
Step 5: Transfer Mobile Phone Photos Onto Your PCUse
the software’s browser or photo utility to transfer your photographs to
your PC. Some software tools provide image editing tools as well that
will enable cropping, rotation, and sharpening of images once
transferred to you PC. Don’t be afraid of referring to the software’s
help file incase you get stuck.
phone models and manufacturers vary, it is always a good practice to
read through the mobile phone user manual and the software's help or
readme file while using this guide. It is also always good practice to
use the backup function of the software first to ensure you can restore
your phone back to its original state should anything happen to it.

2) Select Modem in Phone Main Menu >> Settings >> Connection >> Modem.

Although I could not get the sync software to work on my computer, I
could still transfer files by connection it to my laptop through USB.
It's just a simple case of plug and play. The phone will become the
next available drive letter, and the sd card is the letter after that.
E.g in my case, my hard drives take up the C:/ and D:/ drive, my sd and
memory card readers take up E:/ and F:/ drive, and my CD drive is G:/.
So the next available drives would be H:/ & I:/ It's very easy
to transfer files between the phone and the computer as it's just a
case of dragging and dropping into the folders. When connected to the computer, the phone cannot receive
calls or messages. It charges through the computer when connected by
USB lead, so there's no worrying about running out of battery while
your in the middle of transferring songs or pictures.
