    So, maybe this is a stupid question, but I've got a new Sony DSC-TX5 and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a way to move pictures I take with the Sony to my Droid Incredible. They have this proprietary USB "multi-cable" thing that has both the USB connection and the composite out. I'm wondering if there is a way to get the camera to be recognized as a drive on my DINC using some kind of USB cable. Any ideas at all? The reason I'd like to do this is because the camera takes better pictures than the phone and I'd like to be able to send the pictures to friends and family on the go.

    If all else fails, you could always move the photos from the camera to you pc/laptop and then copy them to your Dinc. Good luck in finding a one step process.

    I really doubt that the DInc is going to be able to do this - I've never seen anything like and external drive option for the DInc. You're going to need to connect both devices to the PC so that the PC sees them as drives, then move the pics from one drive to the other.

    While you've got them connected to the PC, it would be a good idea to save all of your pics on the PC as a backup.

    Yeah...I know there's the PC route, but often times, I'm not near a PC. It would be cool if there was a cable that could interface between the two devices and use something like Astro File Manager to move the files back and forth.

    ...as opposed to on the SD card?

    I haven't figured out how.
