How do I transfer the photos from my computer to my SD card and have them show?

My S4 had saved all my pix to the device. I tried to transfer them to the SD without using the computer but wasn't able to. I downloaded them to a file on my computer. Now that I've finally gotten them to transfer to the SD, they won't come up. They show grey. How do I transfer my pix from the computer to the S4 SD card so they will show up?

The best and most direct way would be to use an USB microSD card reader for your PC to transfer the files. You can get them pretty cheaply online and they look like this:

Unmount the SD card from your S4 and take the back cover off to remove your microSD card. Plug it into the USB reader and copy all your photos from the computer to the card/drive.

I'm not sure what you mean by the files being grey. On your computer, right click on each photo file and make sure they are not protected in some way before transferring them to the SD card.

Which kind of phone are you using? If using an Android based phone, you will need to set it up as either a media transfer device, a camera device or simply just a charging device. With the phone plugged into the PC, drag down the notification bar and tap on the Connected As message.

In the next screen, check the box called Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) to make your phone appear as an external drive in your computer.

How do I put music on my computer from my Galaxy?

How do I do it so I try but it won't work

One way that you can perform this step will be explain in the below steps that I have laid out for you:

1. Plug your device into your computer

2. from here you will receive a pop up on your computer screen to open files from your device

3. while in this window click on the music folder

4. from here you can drag your music from your folder onto your main screen of your device

This will allow your music to copy itself from your device to your computer

How do I download data for my Samsung galaxys4 to my computer?

I do not know how to do please can you help me

The best way to do this is by connecting the S4 to your computer using the supplied micro USB cable along with Samsung's Kies sync software. You can find the PC and Mac versions for download at their site here:

You can also use a microSD with a card reader for your PC to transfer the data files. A microSD USB card reader can be purchased quite cheaply and will not require the sync software to make the transfer. You can pick one up here:

I need to transfer long recordings to my PC?

I have an AT&T Fusion 2 with an Android app called Smart Voice Recorder and I need to transfer long recordings to my PC.

It would be best if you can install the Dropbox app onto your Android device and then copy or move the recording file there. This is your fastest option to be able to transfer files.

Another option is to email the recording file to yourself via web-based emails like Yahoo or Gmail. It will take some time, however, to actually upload the files. In some cases, although this is not very common anymore these days, the mail can also bounce back if the file is too big so this could be a problem.

Music transfer from Samsung S4 to my Dell computer using USB?

I am trying to transfer my music files from my phone to my computer using a USB .. but the computer is saying device not recognized and then disappears

You might need to update the USB drivers from Samsung for the S4 mobile device. You can get the latest version from Samsung's site here:

http://www.samsung.com/levant/support/model/GT-I9500ZKAMID-downloads

On the page, click on software, just under manuals and download the driver package. You can also download and install the Kies software package that will sync your phone with your PC for better file transfer. It's also available on the site for download.

Transfer data from S4 to computer with inaccessible interface?

I can't access the interface on my phone, but I need to get pictures to my computer from the internal memory of the S4.

What you'd like to do is authorize connection between your S4 and computer by using USB connection. You will plug your S4 to your computer just like a normal USB. This may not work right away as your computer may not be able to detect your phone right away, but you will have to try several times or you need to restart your computer first. As soon as your S4 is recognized, you will need to allow your computer to access your S4 by confirming a dialogue box that will appear on your S4. Once that's done, you will see your device under My Computer and begin what you'd like to do from there.

From Google Drive and then to Gmail I'm hoping!?

Hello! I have a 21 minute wedding video and 7 other smaller ones I'm trying to send to my son and daughter in love. I'm downloading from my phone to Google Drive (almost finished) and then am hoping to figure out how to send it Gmail! After I conquer that I'll learn how to burn it to the DVDs I have and send it to them in the mail!

Luckily, you won't need to send the video by Gmail at all! Once you have finished uploading the file to Google Drive, you can share a direct link to the Google Drive file. Just follow these quick steps.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  • Open Google Drive.
  • Click on the file you wish to share.
  • A dark screen will open. Click on the share button (looks like a silhouette with a plus sign next to it).
  • A new screen should appear. Under "Who has access," click the word "Change."
  • Set the privacy to "Anyone with the link," and then click save.
  • To share the link with Gmail, click the Gmail icon above the words "Who has access."
  • To share the link in another way, right click the url underneath the words "Link to share" and click copy. Paste the url wherever it is you would like to share it.
  • The people you share the link with will be able to access and download the file directly from your Google Drive.

To burn a DVD of the videos, simply insert a blank DVD into your computer and use a program like iTunes or Windows Media Player to burn the videos to a video disc.
