    I know we all have our moments where we just gotta take a picture of something we want to preserve! Such things as a cute puppy playing, a funny sign or heck, even an important note like homework assignments; you take a quick photo of whole thing and it saves time of writing, that way you can just go back and look at the photo and extract desired information there. Unfortunately, with the HTC Hero, our photos only have two basic albums...All Photos and Camera Shots. Well, what if we want to designate a specific album to a specific subject? Such as "21st Birthday 2010", "Alexis' First Halloween", etc. Well, here is how you do it on the HTC Hero. I'm going to do it simple and understandable, unlike those confusing, wordy posts all over the internet.

    1)Connect your Hero to your computer with the provided USB Cable.
    2)Swipe down from the status bar and tap "Mount". The device will sync and should pop up as Removable Disk I: drive on your computer.
    3)Open the I: Drive(if not already automatically opened) and search for the folder "DCIM" and double-click.
    4)Three folders should be present; ".thumbnails", "100MEDIA", and "Camera". Double-click "100MEDIA".
    5)Alright, if you have already taken photos with your phone, they have been saved to this "photo album" which is the normal "Camera Shots" or "All Photos" photo album in the Albums application, so all your photos go here. We don't want that. So...step 6.
    6)Two parts: if you haven't already organized your photos into individual folders inside 100MEDIA, go ahead and do that. I'm assuming we all know how to make a new folder and drag and drop the photos/videos into another folder...so part two; after this, right-click the new folder with your desired album name for example "New Album", and click cut. Hit the back button and go to the first page of the I: Drive(this is the page we first opened that shows .footprints, .mail, .ringtonetrimmer, etc.) Right-click and paste. "New Album" should show up somewhere on that I: Drive page.
    7)Now, turn off USB Storage by swiping oncemore from the status bar and tap "Turn off". The status bar should say "preparing SD car"...and then go into the Albums application and voil

    Or... As this info is pretty readily available, maybe waiting a little more then 2 1/2 hours to complain about no "Thanks" would be in order. Relax!

    Well, actually, no. This info is already pretty readily available. The other posts about this are all for Incredible and stuff. And besides, they're too complex and wordy and unnecessary...but thanks...:-/
