I just got a brand new laptop. I've uploaded all my pics and songs from my g1 to my laptop but I'm having trouble with my videos. How can I watch videos from my g1 on my pc. Are there any free converters I can download and if so which ones?
I recently used the USB to charge my phone on the laptop.Next time i went to look in my gallery most of my pics and videos are gone. i also can't find a folder on my computer that contains them. are they gone forever or is there a way to retrieve them?
I have samsung android phone which can be used as wifi hotspot. My question is can I use my laptop internet on android phone by connection laptop to android phone hotspot as phone is unable to connect adhoc network.
I know this is usually done the other way round. My uni halls doesn't have wifi, instead it has an ethernet cable for every room. The problem with this is I'm using up my 3g internet on my phone a lot more and i'd like to do things like update my apps and check twitter more but i'm scared i'll run out. By plugging my phone into my laptop, is there a way to borrow the internet from my laptop for my phone?
I just got a Android Eris and plugged the USB cord into my computer and phone, it looked like it was going to work, then said it needed to install a file from the cd (I have no idea what that means). I am at school right now and forgot the name of the file it needed, but I have no idea how to do this. I want to tether my phone to the computer with PDAnet but can't even get my phone connected to the computer. I also want to put music on the phone. I am on Windows XP. If you need more info, I can get it when I get home from school. Just hoping there is an easy step I am overlooking.
I understand this works over your personal wireless connections but is there anyway to Adhoc your phone to a laptop so i will be able to use this during presentations where no network is present? I'm sorry if this has been ask before, Ive searched and come up with nothing useful, my apologizes in advance if it has been ask before.
Will the smart phone ever take the place of the home computer as we know it ie desktop/laptop.
With most service providers now doing unlimited internet and our phones capable of anything ie email, text, facebook, twitter, sell and buy stuff on ebay, watching movies, TV the list goes on and on. Why do we need our home computers ?
I believe the home computer is on its way out, yes we will need the computer in industry, banks, stock control etc ie for business use but for the home market its doomed.
I have just bought an Android Smart TV Box (to replace my AC Ryan media box which gave up the ghost a few days ago) and it mostly works fine - it is connected to my tv via hdmi and the box is hard wired to my router - so it is the standard connection setup. I have two usb hard drives connected to it. I obviously want to drag and drop media files from my phone (android) or my laptop (Windows7) to the connected hard drives I use ES Explorer app on my phone and Windows explorer but using either version I cannot see the Android box wirelessly - if i do a scan using es explorer it finds the laptop straight away and i can drag and drop but it just will not find the android box at all. However if i go onto the Android box and into the es explorer app and do a scan it picks up the laptop and i can drag and drop a file onto the laptop. So the wireless is sort of working as opposed to not at all. But just seems odd that i cant see it at all - i cant even ping it from the laptop.
I created a simple apps that will just put products in the database(phpmysql) and display. It works well if I run it through my emulator in my laptop but when I transfer it (the .apk file) into the android phone. I could not connect to the database. I already changed the IP into the IP address of my laptop.
I want to format my phone, it's kinda full and going very slow. Here comes the question: Is it a good way to back up my android phone by connecting it to my laptop and copy all the files and maps in to my D: drive. I don't mind if it doesn't my text messages and contacts.

I own an EVO - when I connect it to my Dell Vostro laptop it charges without any problems whatsoever. When I attempt to charge it from my work laptop (Dell Latitude) it never charges. I am not changing any settings, just simply unplugging it from the Vostro and then plugging it into the Latitude.
When I connect my phone via USB to my laptop or my desktop using any of the USB ports, my phone blacks out, goes to an Android start graphic, briefly shows the home view then blacks out over and over. It does charge albiet slowly. I turn the phone off so it will charge fully. In addition I get an alert from Windows "USB Device Not Recognized". Works fine when not connected via USB.

Update- Well I got the PC to connect to the phone by updating the HTC sync driver but I still can't use the phone when it is plugged in to the USB. Screen goes dark and none of the buttons function and the charge light is lit.
I have a number of podcasts in my itunes library that I'd like to put on my Desire. Is it as simple as plugging the Desire into my laptop, creating a folder called Podcasts, and copying them into there? Or is there an app I could or should use to achieve this?
I have tried to connect my phone to my laptop and cant get it to work. Yes, I am using the original cable that came with my phone. I have the samsung drivers on there that I used to root. Could that be it? I have windows 7 I have turned on and off debugging, didnt work. It shows in my computer that I have "samsung android" but wont open or anything? I want to put music on it and take some off I downloaded.
I am wondering if there is an application I can download or purchase so that I can run the Internet on my laptop off of my phone's Internet. I have a htc hero and I want to do away with my Internet card so my phone bill will be cheaper.
I did and I think it started to charge the battery, which I'm avoiding because I want to 100% drain it before its first recharge... What I want to know is how to transfer files over from my laptop to the phone. I have some pictures (jpeg) videos (3gpp, came from my other cell) and a ton of music (MP3s) I'd like on the phone.
OK so I'm loving the note 3 so far but I need a laptop. I really want a macbook pro 13 inch with retina display for school and recreational use. My mind is pretty much set for this laptop although expensive I'm sure it will last me through college (tenth grade atm) and that's what I want. Anyway my main concern is that my phone won't sync well with the laptop and I want to be able to download stuff onto my phone, along with seeing my videos and photos. Even though its an Apple computer will it work just as well as an iPhone would with this laptop?
I have a WinXP laptop that can use my router, and an HTC V One that can use my router. But they don't see each other, and I would like to transfer files from the laptop to the phone without that pesky USB cable.
