I'm trying to download pics from my phone to my computer. How can I do this?
Welcome to the AndroidForums, Rosie!
Here's how you can mount the SD Card with your computer:
There is a pull-down "shade" that at the top of the screen that you can use to put the SD card in "USB Mass Storage" or "Mount as Disk Drive" mode.
Make sure you device is connected via the USB cable, then touch the top of the screen and drag down. You should see a few sections, one of which is labeled "Ongoing" with a "USB connection" section. Touch the "USB connection" section, then select "USB Mass Storage" (or similar option). Hopefully, when you do this, your computer will automatically recognize your phone's SD card so you can explore it.
Your pictures should be stored in the SD card in a folder called /sdcard/DCIM (and maybe in a sub-folder called "Camera").
When you are done transferring things, if you are using a Windows machine, don't forget to do a "safe eject" before repeating the above steps but choosing "Charge only" and unplugging your USB cable so that your phone will be in control of your SD card again.
Good luck and again, welcome to AF!
