    Default Getting Tracfone Pics To An HP Computer

    That's my problem. My deactivated LG420G Tracfone has some very sentimental pics of Tequila on it, and I'm desperately trying to figure out how to get them off the phone and onto my HP computer...

    These pictures are the absolute last pictures I have of her, and I NEED to get them onto my computer.


    HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I do not have a cell phone and so do not know how these things work, but won't your phone still work as a device even without a phone plan? Is that what you mean? I loked it up and found this:

    When the phone is connected to PC via USB...
    if you go to...Start / My Computer. Is the phone
    listed as a Removable Disk?

    If "Yes," right click the drive letter for the phone
    and choose... Open or Explore... and it should
    display the directory of the memory card.

    You can copy/paste or drag/drop your photos
    from there to a folder on your hard drive.

    If the phone is not recognized with a drive letter at
    Start / My Compute, you may be able to download
    the photos if you have an adapter for the memory card
    and a media reader. If you have the proper USB cable
    for your cellphone, connect it to your PC, and turn on the

    camera. Maybe Auto play will open to allow
    you to download the photos.

    I hope that helps

    I don't have the cable to connect it to my 'puter. Tracfone switched to 3G or whatever awhile ago, just before Tequila died, so I didn't have time to get them from the phone to my computer. These 4 pics are the ONLY current pics I have of her, and I would LOVE to get them onto my computer and print them out..

    Maybe you can find the cable among your friends and/or neighbors, or even in a second hand store where such things proliferate?

    USB cable is the easiest method if you can get your hands on one from somewhere. Depending on the capabilities of the phone, there are alternatives.

    Which model phone is it?

    From what I can tell it would take the same USB to Mini USB sync/charge cord that most smart phones use to connect to your computer. If you don't have one, they're only 3 or 4 bucks for a cheapie.

    I know that it's an old flip phone, I was just commenting that it uses the same mini USB charge/data plug as current smart phones.

    The same USB to mini USB cord that can be used to charge the phone can also be used to transfer data from the phone to your computer.

    Thanks Magenta, I missed that!

    Blue, there is a cable for it: USB Cable for Straight Talk/Net10 LG Optimus Logic L35g, 420g LG420g 290C LG290C

    https://www.amazon.com/TracFone-Ulti...+420g+tracfone

    You connect it to your puter and you can copy the pictures over from there. They will probably be in a folder called DCIM (folder in the phone).

    Okay, soooo.... I've got the USB cable, BUT when I plug it in to the phone/ 'puter, it doesn't do anything.. zip, zero, nada. :/ It only says that I don't have the correct driver for that device.

    Sooo, what now? What driver do I need to download and from where? It says it's an LGE USB device.. LG420G deactivated tracfone.. I've GOT to get these pictures of Tequila onto my computer!!!! Why is this so frickin' hard?!!

    when you have the phone plugged into the computer via usb, do you still get a driver error?
    can you just open 'my computer' and see the phone attached as another storage drive, like (E:) or something? that's what we hope for, that the PC will treat it like external storage device. then you can just navigate to the picture folders and copy/paste.

    When I plug it in, it says "installing driver device" or something like that. Then it says "device successfully installed" BUT then that's all it does. No menu opens, nothing at all..

    These are my very last pictures of Tequila, taken the day she died. I'VE GOT TO get them onto my computer.. The tracfone is deactivated, and it barely holds a charge now, so I'm desperate and running out of time..

    When I open "my computer", it just shows me the C drive for the computer, the F drive for removable disk, and another drive for removable disk, like a music CD or movie DVD..

    In my device manager it shows the LG thing I downloaded, but no option to open it..

    Here's the strange thing: my medic alert bracelet has a flash drive (usb) on it and THAT opens just fine when I put it in the computer to update my medical info. I wish it'd work for the stupid tracfone too..

    another option is, if you have a memory card for the phone, to transfer the photos to it, an then copy them from the memory card to your PC.

    When my computer is opened, it shows the F drive for removable storage, but when I click on it, it says "insert removable disk" and I'm like... it's already in there..lol

    On the tracfone I can either send the photos via bluetooth or SMS.. And of course the stupid computer doesn't have bluetooth.. But since the tracfone is deactivated, I can't email the photos to myself.. which sucks.. Maybe I need a cord that has bluetooth on it?? I don't know..I'm incredibly frustrated right now and I'm just about ready to cry.. lol
