    I've been all over Google trying to solve this issue but to no avail. I have a new HTC Inspire with Android 2.2.1. So far, I like it (and I'm coming off an iPhone 3G too). Here's my issue...

    When allowing Windows 7 to automatically import pics from my phone it imports pics from contacts, pics from various web pages, and even complete web pages as well, as well as parts of web pages, closeups of webpages, etc.

    I just want my pics. I especially don't want my browser cache.

    There seems to be no settings in Win 7 to isolate the specific folder on the phone that my pics are stored in and this feels like a "grab everything with .jpg at the end of it" operation.

    But this could be an Android issue. Suggestions?

    Use your Windows Explorer and copy&paste only pictures which are on the SD card in the folder /DCIM/100MEDIA

    Yea, never use windows' import feature, its crap. Just Open the sd card, and go to DCIM folder, all your pictures will be in there, just like any digital camera.
