    What? If you're talking about photos taken with the camera, they're already stored on the SD card, under DCIM -> Camera.

    As mentioned, if the photos are from the camera, they are already stored on the SD. You can either use a card reader on a computer, or use Wi-Fi (which still works even if the phone no longer receives service) and upload it to Google Docs.

    If the photos are in the on-board storage, the only step that you may need to add before this is use a file manager app like Astro (again, you can download it via wi-fi) and transfer it from on-board storage to the SD card. Hope this helps! Peace!

    You can transfer via WiFi without an intermediate service. You can access network shares with a file manager.

    If a machine has BT you can transfer via BT as well. There are countless possibilities for transferring between the SD card and a PC.

    You all are making no sences. The question asked was if you have taken pictures & they are stored on your phone. Are you able through the phone to tranfer them from the phone to the SD card or do you have to use Vcast, WiFi, ect?

    The Motorola DROID (the original DROID, released November 6, 2009, aka DROID 1 aka OG DROID only stored photos taken from the phone's camera to the SDCard.

    They are already on the SDCard, they are not in any sort of internal memory. The Original Motorola DROID had 256 MB for app installations, and 256 MB for RAM, and the 16 GB SDCard.

    Are you sure you mean *this* phone Motorola Droid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, or do you have another DROID branded phone, such as the Droid Incredible, Droid 2, Droid 3, Droid 4, Droid Charge, etc?

    If so, you've inadvertently posted in the wrong forum - but no sweat, it happens.
