Hi all,

So many queries about syncing in this forum, so many unanswered questions.

I have a simple problem. I would like to copy photos from my phone to my PC. I have done it in the past but cannot remember how to do it now.
My htcSync (latest update downloaded) doesn't seem to want to work. (no device detected - who knows why, it's sitting right here in front of me and is detected with default connection type as Disk Drive - i'm sure it has worked in the past)
I have downloaded and installed MyPhoneExplorer and it works as a WiFi, but all the guff with the USB connection seems a bit complicated, and anyway, on WiFi it finds contacts but fails to find photos.
My recollection is that formerly the phone just became another device on the PC, and I could then navigate to it within windows explorer, then copy and paste photos to whatever PC folder I wanted, but I cannot find the phone in windows explorer. Maybe I am missing something somewhere (I'm sure I am).
Any help would be greatly appreciated, but please try to not use too many acronyms as I'm an old fart and cannot keep up with them all.

to all

Hi there, I've not got Windows so this may be a pointless post, but I use estrong file explorer on my phone, find share on ftp and then copy and paste wirelessly.

I think you'd have to enable filesharing on you pc, so the phone can see it.

Thank you for your suggestion. I eventually got it to work with MyPhone Explorer
