Copy your photos from the internal memory to the microSD card. Remove memory card from Galaxy. Use SD card adapter & USB card reader to move/copy those photos to your PC running Vista. Done.
Sometimes connecting a smartphone to a PC doesn't work as it's supposed to
I drag pics from my Samsung Galaxy SII i777 to Windows Vista PC, a window comes up and says that indeed it is copying to destination folder, I see it momentarily in the destination folder as an icon, but when I open that folder - it's empty! What the deal?
