Plug in your sync cable and wait for both the removable storage devices to be detected on your pc (one will be the internal mem the other your sd)then navigate emmc/dcim/100media and they will be in there. Copy them over to the DCIM folder on your sd.

EDIT: When plugging your sync cable in select "disk drive" option.

When I try this, my computer doesn't recognize the internal memory. It says "Please insert disk into drive F" I can access my SD card just fine, though.

I was having and still am having the same issue. I opened the Windows media player and for some reason it recognized my phone's internal memory. I then tried to duplicate this and it didn't work the second time. I then unplugged my phone from the PC a few times and it eventually recognized my phones internal memory. It's ******ed but just try a few more times and you should get it...

Try unmounting the phone storage drive (under Settings>Connect to PC) and remount and see if that helps.

You can also try Astro File Manager. You can just make a copy of your picture folder and paste it in on the SD storage card. All of this can be done from your phone. I moved all of my music (about 8 gigs) from my phone to my SD card without a hiccup.

Agreed, the easiest thing would be to use a file manager. Then you get a nice UI, and you can cut and paste to your heart's content.

AndExplorer is a really nice file manager. It will allow you to select all the pics you want, copy or cut them, and move them wherever you want, even into a new folder.

copying a photo/song and entering from Card to phone or vice-versa is not moving it because your actually taking up space on both your Card and phone memory by reproducing it. Can move the file itself and free up space on the SD-Card moving the file to the Phone memory or vice-versa

Is there a way to move the file off the phone memory and on to the SD-Card within the phone OS without hooking it up to a PC.

I had a "duh" moment when this happened to me....

After telling the phone that I wanted to connect to the computer....I had forgotten to hit "DONE" at the bottom. After that I connected fine!
