    Thank you, this worked perfectly. The select ‘attached items’ is not very intuitive, and many other forums simply said to >Tap> hold> and hit >save.

    The pix get saved in the download directory which I was able to access when settign the usb mode to mass storage rather than KIES. Hope the helps.

    Agreed with Kate… Where does the picture saved to the sd card actually go so I can bring them back up again?
