Samsung Phone SGH-A412

I am abe to take a photo on my phone and transfer it to my PC using Samsung PC Studio. This appears as a "mms" file extension. Is someone able to show how to convert this to a more common file or offer a player to display this file. My PC is running XP + SP Ken3. Thanks in anticipation. Ken

Not a phone expert.. .but...

Well, I'm not a phone guru, unfortunately.

But there are a couple of ways you can get pictures to your PC.

One way is to email them to an email your computer can retrieve. (Charges may apply, depending on your plan).

The other way is to transfer them to a media card and then bring them over that way. Samsung's PC Studio for cell phones is just an application I'm not familiar with.

If this doesn't work and no-one else responds, or you'd like me to forward this to someone in our Telecomm Divison, let me know and I'll be happy to do so.

Thanks for the reply. I have emailed the photo to my email address but unfortunately it still appears as a "mms" file in my email. I am unable to transfer the photo to a message stick as I can find no way to do it on my phone. As suggested you may be able to pass the enquiry on - I would appreciate this. Ken.

I am not familiar with your phone. I have an m610 and have always had the same problem which I have just solved. I have Windows XP Pro.
First transfer all your photos to the media card. On most phones just go to the "Pics/Video", "Settings", Auto Save To", "Memory Card"

Plug the turned on phone to the usb cable connected to the computer
The Found New Hardware wizard starts, press "cancel"
On the phone turn up "Tools", "Mass Storage", "Connect to PC", , the phone should indicate that you are connected
Windows should recognize the device by:
1)opening a window to choose what you want to do or,
2)showing the "removable drive (letter) in Windows Explorer under My Folders
Transfer by choosing the program or use Windows Explorer to open the folders on the card (if you can get this far you will find the photos).
If this doesn?t work then fool around a bit and you may be able to find a sequence that works for you.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
