    Hi all,
    What's going on with the camera app on the dhd???
    When I transfer photos to my pc (win7) using 'mount phone as disc drive' it transfers 4 different images of the same photo. REALLY annoying. It makes a thumbnail, a normal version and then 2 other versions. And even when I delete the pictures from the gallery app they seem to still be stored elsewhere on the phone. What?
    I should add that I'm not using htc sync cos it sucks.
    Anyone know a good alternative app?
    Just throwin it out there...
    Cheers.
    Steve

    Do you use a file manager for transfer?

    I use Estrongs File Explorer over WiFi to transfer files to/from my LAN share.
    My LAN share is on a NAS but it could be also on a PC.

    I just mount the phone as a disk drive and cut and paste.

    This is on a Macbook

    I was able to connect my Mesmerize to my PC with the cable before and download photos, but now it is saying " file name is too long"...What has changed? I called USCC and they didn't know what to do!

    I normally either go into the DCIM folder and copy / paste....

    Or use Air DROID.
