LG Lotus Elite LX610 - Getting Photos to PC

If you are having trouble getting your photos off of your LG Lotus Elite onto your PC, the following instructions will help you.

If you have the phone open when you connect the data cable, a dialog will appear.
  1. Press the OK key on your phone and then a menu should come up
  2. Choose "Connect To PC" or press 2.
This will mount your memory card as a generic mass-storage device (most computers from Windows XP onwards will not need any special drivers).

If you do not get the menu, or you connect the data cable with the phone closed...
  1. Open the phone if it is not already open
  2. Press END until you end up at the home screen
  3. Click the house icon in your carousel
  4. Choose "Tools" or press 0
  5. Choose "Mass Storage" or press 6
  6. Choose "Connect to PC" or press 1.
If for some reason you do not have a microSD card, you will need one to get the pictures off your phone. They are fairly cheap for small (1gb, the size included) cards. Once you have a card, you can move all the pictures off the phone onto the card, then follow the steps above.

To move pictures from the phone to the card:

  1. Make sure the memory card is inserted and formated
  2. Press END until you end up at the home screen
  3. Click the house icon in your carousel
  4. Choose "Photos & Videos" or press 7
  5. Choose "My Photos & Videos" or press 3
  6. Choose "In Phone"
  7. Press the right action button (above the back button)
  8. Choose "Copy/Move" or press 7
  9. Choose "Move" or press 2
  10. Choose "Move All" or press 2
Your pictures are now moved off the phone memory and onto your memory card.
They will be in a folder called "100LGDCF"
