    I had used the CTP option to transfer videos but I found only the photos inside the folder , I did a cut and paste of the folder to my PC and found the video file not being present again I transferred the folder to my phone and found the video not being present ? Does the video get deleted ? Is it possible to retrieve it?

    I was using a usb cable that I bought. I switched to the one that came with the Galaxy Note II, and then, when I plugged it into the computer, it tried to install some software, and said I needed Windows Media Player version 11 or later on my PC. I launched Windows Media player, and it went through some sort of initialization process. I then unplugged the USB cable, and plugged it in again, and now, I am able to see my phone in Windows Explorer under the disk drive icons, and navigate through the folders on the phone with Windows Explorer.
