How do I move pictures from my Samsung Convoy 4 to a PC?

You can transfer pictures and other media from your device to your PC using Windows® Explorer.

Setting Your Device to USB Mass Storage

Your device must be set to USB Mass Storage to transfer files to your PC.

Your device should ask you if you want to switch to USB Mass Storage every time you plug your device into your PC. Follow the instructions below to manually set your device to USB Mass Storage.

Note: You can't make or receive phone calls while the device is set to USB Mass Storage.

  1. Connect your device to your PC using the supplied USB cable.
  2. From the Home screen, press the OK key.
  3. Use the Directional key to highlight Tools  and press the OK key.
  4. Use the Directional key to highlight USB Mass Storage and press the OK key.

To exit USB Mass Storage, press the OK key to disconnect your device from your PC.

Transferring Pictures

Transferring pictures to your computer does not delete the pictures from your device. Transferring makes a copy of the picture and saves it in the folder you select.

In this example, we are using Windows® 7. 

  1. Connect your device to your PC using the supplied USB cable.
  2. A window may automatically open on your computer. Click Open folder to view files.

    Note: If the window does not automatically open, you can also open Windows Explorer by clicking Start, typing Explorer in the search box, and pressing the Enter key on your keyboard. On older versions of Windows, you can click Start, click Run, and type Explorer to open Windows Explorer.
  3. Click the folder that has the pictures you want to transfer.
    • microSD™ card: DCIM > Camera
    • Internal memory: my_pictures
  4. Click and drag the pictures to the desired folder on your PC. For this example, we are dragging pictures to the default My Pictures folder on the computer.
