    All of my photos are saved to my SD card. Is it best to just plug my Dinc into my PC and backup the SD card in it to the PC or should I do this a different way? Thanks

    I use the Photobucket application from the android market ... when you take a picture it automatically uploads it to photobucket.com ... you also have the choice to switch it to manual if you dont want every picture going there .. oh yeah and its FREE!

    Just connect your phone to your PC with the USB cable. It will usually show up on your phone as being in charge only mode. Change that to enable disk drive access. Then copy the pics to your computer. If you are storing them on the SD card you could always just take it out and using the appropriate reader copy them to the computer.

    +1 to what jwjohnson suggests. I prefer this method over using still another site to store things.
