    Ummm, plug it in, select Disk Drive mode on the phone. Then go to the DCIM folder on the card, and walla, theres your pics.

    One more gotcha. After you plug the phone into USB and select disk mode you need to go to the notifications bar at the top. There will be a notice that you are connected by USB and would you like to mount your SD cards. You need to click to mount. Then your phone cards (internal and external if you have it) should be mounted as USB drives in windows.

    Do tell us if any further complications occur. There are usually fixes for the problems.

    I have an issue with this as well. I have an iBook G4 (purchased in 2006, mac os x 10.4.11) that doesn't recognize my phone when I connect it. My phone recognizes that it is connected, but my mac doesn't. I mount the device but nothing happens. Is there anyway to fix this?

    I did find a way to circumvent the problem via bluetooth, but I was hoping to have all options available.

    Yes, enable USB debugging mode.

    Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging

    That will make the Mac recognise the phone.
