How to Upload Pictures From the Samsung Impression to Your Computer With a USB Cord

by Melissa King

Your Samsung Impression includes a 3.0-megapixel camera, and with a microSD memory card installed, you can store hundreds of photos on the device. When you run out of space for your photos, connect the Impression to your computer and transfer them via a USB cable using the New PC Studio software, which enables your computer to communicate with your phone and recognize it as a mass storage device.

Install Samsung PC Studio

Open your Internet browser and go to the Samsung Impression support page on the Samsung website (link in Resources).

Click "Manuals & Downloads," then click "Software." Click "EXE" next to Samsung New PC Studio, then click "Send" in the window that opens.

Click "Save File" to open a save file location window, then click "Desktop" and "Save."

Double-click the Samsung PC Studio file on your desktop when the download completes to start installing the software. Select your language, then click "Installation." Close the window when installation completes.

Connect Your Phone and Transfer Photos

Tap "Menu | Settings | Connectivity | Bluetooth." If Bluetooth is on, turn it off.

Return to the Connectivity menu and tap "Select USB Mode," then "Samsung PC Studio."

Insert the included USB cable into the USB port on the bottom of the Impression. Insert the other end of the cable into a free USB port on your computer. The New PC Studio software opens automatically when the computer finds your phone.

Click on the icon of your phone in the top right corner of the New PC Studio window to open the phone explorer window.

Double-click "Pictures," then click on the photo you want to upload. For multiple photos, hold down the "Ctrl" key while clicking each picture. Right-click the photos and select "Copy" or "Cut." Selecting "Cut" removes the selected photos from the phone.

Double-click on the "My Computer" icon in the top left corner of the New PC Studio window and select a location for the photos.

Right-click anywhere in the save location window, then click "Paste" to upload the selected photos to your computer.

Disconnect the Impression from the computer when the transfer finishes.
