Transfer photos and videos from an Android phone

Transfer your photos and videos from your Android phone to your computer, and drag and drop them to your Nokia Lumia.

  1. Use a compatible USB cable to connect your Android phone to your computer.
  2. Use an appropriate Android sync software to sync the content you want to your computer. Note the folders where you synced the files.
  3. When the sync is complete, connect your Nokia Lumia to your computer. Your phone is shown as a separate drive on your computer.
  4. Drag and drop the items from the computer to the subfolders under Pictures and Videos on your phone. Make sure you copy the items to the correct subfolders, otherwise you may not be able to see them on your phone.
