    I have a Samsung Fascinate and would like to transfer pictures and videos from my phone to my laptop. I try to use the Allshare app but my phone won't recognize my laptop for anything other than music. This is really weird and confusing. Can someone help?:confused:

    The easiest method is to plug your phone into your computer, drag down the notification bar at the top, hit "USB connected" followed by Mount. Now it's like a flash drive - you can use (My) Computer to look for it.

    By default, pictures and videos taken by the camera are under DCIM > Camera.

    Be sure to unmount the phone before disconnecting it. You should be able to through one of the icons in your computer's notification area. Or you can right-click the drive shown in (My) Computer and click Eject - just be sure to not hit format by mistake!

    You could also use a file-sharing app like Dropbox, if you want. Dropbox itself gives you 2 gigs of online storage for free, and the Android app is quite nice. I love it so much that even if my phone is already plugged in my computer, instead of Mounting I just use Dropbox lol.
