Re: How can i move(select) many photos ???

Hi!

 

Not having your model, I'm going to guess that the operation is largely the same.

 

For your first question, I suggest tethering and using it as a USB drive letter...way too hard to move that much on the device itself. Once done, you can use it as a Windows drive letter with all the select, multiple select, drag, drop, etc. that you are used to. See this article:

For the second question, I don't think you can do it as easily as we'd all like. See this post for what I recommended to another user a bit ago:

Hope that helps!

Re: How can i move(select) many photos ???

No no no... you don't have to do it the way I'm suggesting. I'm trying to suggest an alternative that might not be as tedious.

 

Let me restate my understanding of your question.

 

You want, on your BB, to move 60 photos from one folder on your BB to another folder on your BB. Right? As such, it's tough to do through the BB interface because it does not, to my knowledge, provide an easy way to select multiple files...you'd have to move them one by one. It can be done...but it's very tedious.

 

Instead, if you set up your BB to be a USB drive on your PC, you can work with it from your PC and treat it as just another drive letter in your PC. So, for example, say it get's called drive K:. You can then move, on your PC, multiple files all at once from one folder on K: to another folder on K:...but the files would continue to reside on your BB since K: is just the drive letter that Windows is seeing your BB memory as.

 

Hopefully that clears it up. It's up to you.

 

  • The BB interface = tedious to do what you want
  • The USB drive interface = working with the files just like you do on other drives in Windows.

 

The choice is yours. And there might be other alternatives...this is just the one that first comes to my mind to help you out.
