Transfer photos from phone to PC

Hi

 

I have some important photos in my Blackberry Pearl 8100 and I have no idea how to transfer them to my PC.  I am not connected to the internet so cannot send them to my email.  Do I need some sort of cable and software to do the transfer? Please assist. Thanks.

Re: Transfer photos from phone to PC

You USB cable and BlackBerry desktop Manager to transfer your pictures in your PC. Use the USB cable that comes with BlackBerry device. You can collect Desktop Manager by clicking on the link.

 

Do you have Media card in your device? If yes then move all the pics to your media card and connect USB cable to your PC and copy them to your PC. You need to turn on Mass Storage Mode on from Options -> Memory -> Mass Storage Mode Support: On

Download Desktop Manager 4.7. This one is the latest by RIM.

Re: Transfer photos from phone to PC

There should have been a USB cable in the box, and you can transfer directly by grab & drop (using Windows Explorer Libraries/Documents/Pictures windows. If you didn't get a cable and don't want to buy one (you can also charge your phone while you're using your computer using this cable), you can plug the miniSD into the card slot in your laptop (there are larger cases that the miniSD fits into, as well; check with your local computer/office supply store if one didn't come with your miniSD). If I can do it, "it ain't that hard." Borrow a teenager -- they know everything! If you don't already have an SD card in your 8100, buy one and transfer the pics from the phone mem to the card. BBs are difficult to get to know but once you learn them they're great. Unless they're stolen, then nobody cares, neither Rim BB, AT&T, the police or the insurance companies. None of them seem to want to catch the burglars or get the phone back, at least in Hawaii.

Re: Transfer photos from phone to PC

I installed the Desktop Manager. However, when I click on the software short-cut. It doesn't do anything.  Any advise? Thanks!

There is an app on the market called Photo Transfer - you can transfer photos from one device to computer - that might be something to consider...
