    When I receive a picture in a text message, I click on the picture to save it. The picture is saved to a “Messaging” folder. When I connect my Razr Maxx HD to my computer, the “Messaging” folder isn’t there. So how do I get my pics from “Messaging” folder to my computer???

    I finally gave up and went to the store my screen did not have the usb connection like the one shown. Mine is under storage,then I go to the 3 lines in the left hand corner, I checked the mass storage but nothing happens when I connect to my computer. The other options are media device or Camera. I used my camera to take the videos I want to download. Do I need a sdcard. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks. Just connected the USB cable and expected the
    directories to mount just like other phones I’ve had.
    Took a while to find out. With the help of your post.
