    Getting Videos off of my LG cell phone

    So I got a data cord for my LG and plugged it into my Vista laptop and Vista proceeded to load the hardware. Ok, great. how do I get my videos and pictures off of this LG phone? There is no indication of Removable Drive in My Computer.

    What is the model of that LG? Some phones you can't get them off other than send to someone's email.

    VX8360 and I just tried BitPim and it did not have this phone listed. It only went up to VX8350. Is this bad luck at it's best. When it detected it Bitpim said Found other CDMA on Com5.

    Anyhow did not find anything in their interface that said I could Export video though.

    I sent one video to my email but my brainless Vista could not open it.

    The manual is here:

    http://www.lge.com/us/mobile-phones/...0.jsp#features

    I read through it and the only thing I could see for you to do this, is either upload to an online album, or save it to a MicroSD card and use a reader to import that to your computer.

    I got the manual here and read thru it. Now I just emailed myself a video from it and the video is a format called .3G2 and neither of my computers reads that format. I did VLC but only video came thru not audio. It's a video of my 91 year old mother singing "Crazy" by Patsy Kline. Mom can't talk but she can sing. She has old-timers disease.

    You'll need Quicktime. Although my research says VideoLAN VLC should open it too. But try quicktime.

    Quicktime worked fine. VLC does not play audio from the video. I have about 6 short 30 sec videos and the first one had no sound so I just tried QT and that worked fine.

    But, I have this data cord for my phone that I got the other day and wanted to just take the videos and pictures off of my phone and onto my computer.
    The computer recognized the phone but there was no interface to do any exports. I figured the phone would show up as a removal device but it didn't.

    Well that was Vista. Let me try XP and see what that does.

    Like to make this easier though.

    Ok, I'm back.
    I plugged the phone into the XP computer and then device mgr says that I have a LG CDMA USB Modem and the drivers are not installed. I wonder. If I got these drivers on my PC I will still won't be able to just get the videos/pictures off of my computer. I think this is for using your phone to dial up Internet with a laptop. Do you think I am right?

    Did that phone not come with a MicroSD memory card? If it did, you can store the videos to that card, buy a MicroSD card reader /USB interface, and install the videos from that to your computer. You may need to buy an adapter to for the MicroSD card.

    It has a slot for one but it did not come with one that you plug into the side. Is that what U mean?

    Might want to check on getting one. My old phone "motorola" came with one and also included the adapter.

    21st century technology stinks. This phone has important features that the previous similar model phone does not have. Wish I had my old phone. Thanks
