Hey, all!  I could use some help. My wife's phone is a Galaxy, 'stock' with 4gb of memory, but she added another 4gb card.

When we connect it via USB to her laptop (a 1 year old Toshiba Satellite) it 'sees' her phone, and upon opening the Galaxy  icon, shows two folders, 'Card' (the extension RAM) which says about 290MB used out of 3.8gb, and Phone, which shows about 3.6gb used. Opening 'Phone' takes forever, and lists about 6 folders, one of which is Pictures. When we try to open the Pictures folder to dump some of the photos, it won't open, just cycles endlessly until we get the 'not responding' notice in the top of the window. . Is this because it is so full? We tried to transfer them to her laptop via Blutooth, but got a message saying the transfer failed, and to make sure the 'Bluetooth radio' was plugged in, whaterver that means.  Also, thinking perhaps the phone had gotten a bug that was causing this, I tried to scan the Galaxy with the Avira on the laptop, but it didn't show on the menu of scannable drives. 

 

I have a Blackberry, know nothing about these touch-screen types of phones, and on top of that, my wife's is set-up in Thai, so I can't check things out too easily.

  Can anyone help get the shots out of Pictures? 

 

Thanks in advance.

I don't have a fix for the way you're trying to do it. But I have a suggestion for a work around. Do you have a USB adapter for the SD card in her phone? You could pull the sd card put it in the USB adapter and plug that into your computer. Read it that way.

I have something similar to this: USB 2.0 Memory Card Reader/ Writer for SD, Micro SD

Animal,

 

   Thanks for the reply. That's a good idea, except that the additional/removable card is not that full, and I don't think that it's that one that is causing the problem. I don't know if the 'stock' memory is on a removable chip/card or if it is integral. I'll check it out and see.

 

Thanks again. 

 

I stil dig that icon of yours...lol
