    They are available a number of places.... other people in the forum may have a direct link. I found them using google, search "lg ally verizon usb drivers". Or you can install pda-net on your pc, it will install the drivers too.

    You just want to get pics you take with your Ally's camera onto your computer, right?

    If you take the USB cord that came with your phone and plug the mini usb end into your phone, and the USB end into your computer, the little green Android should pop up (with the USB arm) and say "USB connected" with a gray "Turn on USB storage" button below the Android.

    Click that button and it will give you a little warning about how some things won't work if you enable the USB mass storage (won't be able to use the camera since the SD card is in use, etc).

    Click ok.

    The Android will turn orange and it'll say "USB storage in use" below him. You should also get a pop up on your PC asking if you want to AutoPlay... just like any other flashdrive you plug in. If it doesn't pop up, you can go to My Computer and find the removable disk, again just like any other flash drive.

    Find the folder DCIM and then open up the folder CAMERA. Bam! All the pics you took with your camera.
