    First off, I am a computer idiot. I went on vacation and took several photos and videos with my Epic. I put the USB cord into the computer, clicked mass storage, USB was connected, and my computer recognized the new hardware.

    Now, I went to "my computer", clicked all the removable disk options, and cannot find where the hell the phone info is.

    I'm sure there is a simple explanantion, but being a computer idiot, I am completely lost !!!!

    Try opening My Computer before you plug your phone in, then when you do it, you should see the drive appear. They should be in a folder labled "DCIM," which I think is a subfolder of "Media" on your SDCard.

    Or you could do what I do and just upload them using the Dropbox app, then download them onto your computer from dropbox.com

    I hope this helps.
