How to download photos from my LG Xpression to my computer?

  • Connect your phone to your computer using a USB data cable. Once connected, you should see a notification on your computer, something like "Found new hardwre LG USB modem. Go to My Computer and you should see your phone's memory card listed as a Removable storage device. Click on that drive and you can now access the content of your memory card. You can now move or copy files to your computer.

    I do not see any message like "Found new hardware..." when I connect my LG Xpression to computer. It rather shows USB connection mode or something like that with 3 options : "Mass storage", "Music sync", "Data storage". When I choose "Mass storage" it says that I need to insert a memory card.
    So, I am confused about how to transfer pictures I have in my LG Xpression to my computer. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I also have this phone, and I have found that, unless you have a memory card in your phone (or even if you do have one) you cannot get pictures off of the phone. Using a USB cable, you can transfer pictures from the phone that were taken after the point that you aquired a memory card, as these pictures are, from then on, saved to the memory card. Any pictures that are stored to the phone's internal memory cannot be transferred from the phone excepting by text message or bluetooth.

    So, where does the memory card go in the phone ? I don't see any space for it.
    What do they cost ?

    I had the same problem with this phone, but i solved it! I sent my pictures via Bluetooth to my computer. Just that easy!

    The memory card port can be found by taking the back plate off the phone. The card slot is just below the shutter button for the camera on the side of the phone. Remember, this phone takes a micro sd card, not a standard.

    The easiest way is to set up bluetooth and transfer. It doesn't matter if you have a memory card or not and saves a lot of time compared to texting pics.

    How do you set up Bluetooth between your pc and your phone?

  • dlb about 1 year ago

    Bluetooth: your PC needs a Bluetooth adapter. Most newer laptops (since about 2010) have Bluetooth built in; tower/desktop PCs generally do not have built in Bluetooth (a few do, check the "device manager" for Bluetooth devices on your laptop or desktop). If the PC does not have a built in BT adapater, you need to buy a USB Bluetooth adapter, usually about $20-$30 US. Once it's installed CORRECTLY with all drivers and software, make sure your C395 phone has BT enabled, and "My Visibility" is on. Then use the PC BT software to scan for the phone, you may also have to use the "Search New Device" feature in your phone's BT menu. Eventually, the PC and phone will (hopefully) communicate and you can then transfer your pics, etc. You'll need to install the LG USB Mobile Driver before doing ANYTHING. Use this link for LG support & downloads: http://www.lg.com/us/support/software-manuals Then locate the c395 on the menu and download the USB driver; it may not be needed but I got nothing accomplished until I installed this driver; I think the USB driver should be installed, it won't hurt anything... be sure the phone is connected before installing the USB driver or else the PC will appear to lock up at the end of the driver install. Oh... one other thing that may not matter, but I installed the Microsoft MPT driver too. Search it out, it's free from Microsoft, I don't know if it made a difference in the whole scheme of things, but it didn't hurt anything either. All this was done on Windows7 Home Premium 64bit. Good luck, I hope this helps someone, somewhere.

    Go into the phones settings, click on connection and chose USB connection mode as "mass storage". This will allow you access to the SD card, but not the internal memory. You can transfer pics from the phone to the card and then to the computer but so far this is the only way I have found to do it without doing bluetooth.

  • I have the LG Xpression phone and I have the memory card installed. I downloaded the driver for this device to my computer. The drivers installed correctly. When I plug the phone into the USB port, the computer does not recognize the device. I don't get a "new device detected" or new "drive" on the computer. It simply charges the battery. What am I doing wrong?
