    Okay so I have my X and I'm loving it. But I need assistance, and its really silly. :(

    I transfered the 16gb sd card I've had for years from my Inc to my X. Im missing all my newer pictures and videos. They're on my Incs internal memory and not the sd card. I have no idea how to move them I can't figure it out.

    :( help? I have no service on the Inc anymore and I know there are apps but that's not an option.

    If you plug the Inc into the computer using the USB cable it should bring up a mass storage device type of box that lists several options. (provided you chose the right option when prompted) You should be able to explore it as if it were a USB thumb drive. You can drill down to the DCIM camera folder and find the images there. When I plug my Inc in which has the card installed the PC spawned two such boxes, one for each storage device (the internal memory and the micro card memory).

    I no longer have any service on my Inc so I am in the exact same situation as you but that should not matter. The Inc should act as just another storage device.

    From there it is of course a matter of copying and saving.

    Sorry if I'm not totally clear, I'm a bit lit... had a few but hopefully you get the idea.

    I had the same problem and transferred photos to my computer, by the USB, after the phone was "unactivated".

    And if you have checked the 'do every time i plug in option' which means it won't give you the disk drive option then it still show your connection type in the notification drop down. You can click it from there and then select disk drive:cool:

    Do you have a wifi connection? If you do then you don't need service to get on the marketplace and get Astro File Manager. I know you said apps aren't an option because of no service but thats a way around the service issue.

    Thanks guys I appreciate all of the input, really. :)

    I'm going to try to do a file transfer on my computer right now.

    I just hope that it being a Mac it doesn't destroy this whole concept.
