    Not sure what way you use to transfer images / files from a phone to your computer? Personally, I am an avid user of cloud services. Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Amazon, Box, and the list goes on.

    Anyway, my most commonly used cloud services are Dropbox and OneDrive, due to the available storage space on both accounts - 8 Gigabytes and 1 Terabyte, respectively.

    I just take images using the camera on my phone. Then, they are automatically uploaded to my cloud, and available for automatic download to every device I have attached, tablets, phones, and computers.

    I've just been using a patch cord from phone to laptop. Been working great all this time and now the 'puter can't find the pics-it says. It finds the device, just doesn't recognize the new pictures.

    If all else fails, open "my computer"; that should show the phone if the USB is attached. (Heh. Without the USB cord, you'll need to email the pics from your phone to yourself, and get at them that way.) Once the phone is located in my computer, open it to see the contents. From there, it should be pretty easy to copy off to the "my pictures" folder. The rest should be obvious, copy paste as needed into your post or wherever needed.

    I just can't get to luvvin' the cloud concept.

    I have my own cloud. I don't store files that can be accessed by "technicians" or can be easily hacked into from the outside. I post what I am willing to share for anybody to see. Outside of that nothing.

    If ya have a modern fone, you might e able to teather to your laptop, or Bluetooth data between the two. Won't solve the problem, but it gets your data moved!

    Keep in mind, I never said trust clouds with anything more than what you would probably post on this forum. Personally, I wouldn't even upload an encrypted folder or file, to store. I have plenty of portable drives, for that sort of backup storage.

    I do, however, use clouds for hosting backup software / applications, images, and general files (PDFs, for example), to share with others.
