    Hi Everyone-

    I wasn't able to find my question in the forums so here goes:

    Every time I go to download my photos from my phone (both SD card and internal), I end up downloading thumbnails and images from websites I've visited as well as people's avatars from foursquare. I end up having to delete hundreds of images every time I want to download my pix.

    Any idea how to disable the downloading of the web stuff? (Can the phone differentiate web image from photos I've taken from the camera?) I've tried from both the phone side and the computer side and I can't figure it out. Also, is there any way to get my phone to stop storing these web images? I don't think I need them, do I? (I'm a newbie smartphone owner if you couldn't tell!)

    Thanks!

    Bump.

    Does anyone have an answer to this?
    I have a HTC desire and every time I plug it in to the cradle it downloads web images to my computer along with any photos I have taken.
    This could be anything from icons in Foursquare (hundreds of them) to whole google screen dumps.

    I just want to know if there is a way to turn it off or stop the phone from storing these images.

    Any help would be great.

    AJ

    your camera pictures save to a specific folder, only copy the contents of that folder. Don't copy the whole sd card.
